Murphy by Enovation Controls, now celebrating 75 glorious years, works with its customers to pull together the equipment package making it user-friendly, safe, more intuitive and ultimately more efficient.
Murphy by Enovation Controls combines years of experience in equipment instrumentation with a strong Indian presence and works with several major OEMs in India providing them with solutions to not only intelligently integrate their equipment but also play a major role in enhancing equipment features.
With ever growing focus on improving infrastructure and an expected increase in spending on this, the construction and mining equipment manufacturers will certainly have a major role to play in shaping India´s future. From a simple forklift to a slew crane, a wheel loader to a hydraulic excavator, a road paver to a compactor, dozers, dump trucks, compressors, drilling rigs, road sweepers, harvesters and even locomotives, all will play their own part in this. Murphy by Enovation Controls believes that equipment integration using technology can be a great enabler in making these very equipment´s perform better, be more user-friendly, be more productive and most importantly safe to use. That is where intelligent equipment integration comes in.
Murphy by Enovation Controls works ground up with several of its OEM customers in India understanding the needs of the end-user. It also offers integration solutions that suit not only the Indian operation style but also in line with globally acceptable standards of equipment electronics and performance.
Murphy PowerView´ intelligent displays form the central offering from Murphy. These equipment displays are fully programmable and can function as the intelligent central controller unit for most equipment logic. In display sizes from 2.5 to 7 inch, from monochrome to full colour, these displays are targeted at HMI and controller applications in mobile and stationary equipment. These are suitable for equipment with both mechanical and the latest Tier 4/Euro Stage IV electronic engines ensuring that the equipment is future safe. They are rugged, robust and maintain high standards of electrical, environmental and mechanical toughness that Murphy is known for. IP67 casing, a voltage range of 6-32 V DC and a working temperature range from -40 to +85oC makes them ´ANY Environment Displays´. Waterproof IP rated connectors moulded to the rear make them easy to integrate into the user´s equipment.
´As the Murphy PowervisionTM displays have considerable inbuilt processing ability, they act as the central controlling node in many equipment that we integrate. Adding to this, when the customisation is done at our office in Pune, it helps us get our customers´ equipment ready for the market faster than most others,´says Harpreet Singh Wahan, General Manager, Sales & Marketing, India.
The Powerview´ displays communicate on J1939 CANbus protocol and simultaneously take in direct I/O from analogue and digital inputs. The data received can then be shown its customer and application-specific graphical format designed easily using the Murphy PowerVisionÖ Configuration Suite. Icons, round gauges, bar gauges, segment gauges and pop-ups in application and customer-specific layouts make the displays extremely user-friendly. Comprehensive multi-language text-based fault warnings and acknowledgment system keeps the operator aware of the health of the equipment/engine. Data is available in several formats and measurement units which can be changed by the user through the user settings.
Pop-ups for service reminders and an inbuilt previous fault memory system ensure that the personnel servicing the equipment can take informed decisions.
The Murphy range of cost-effective and modular I/O modules like XM500, SenderCAN and the MeCAN provide logical control capability to the customer´s equipment. Robust, waterproof and easy to integrate makes them a very popular choice among several OEMs.
´Cost-effective and modular units like the SenderCAN and MeCAN are great for equipment integration. They are usually associated to a particular equipment feature and then either added or deducted based on the end-user requirement for that feature,´ says Chris Taylor, Head Engineering, UK.
Power management is increasingly becoming very important and when it is well done, it can play an important role in making the equipment easy to assemble, easy to service and also reduce wiring harness and component costs. The Powercore IX3212 û Intelligent Expansion Power Module from Murphy does all this and more. With 20 inputs, a very robust casing, solid state relays, CAN communication and 12 high-current outputs that can switch up to 15A, each of these modules is a great asset to equipment integration.
The I/O modules and the Powercore IX3212 working around the power vision display units form a strong and reliable network of hardware and software using which the entire equipment can be integrated. This robust base is then used to integrate other components like pressure transmitters, inclinometers, rotary sensors, valve controllers, data loggers, and cameras which are also offered by Murphy as part of the complete solution it offers to its customers.
Murphy in India
As the Indian CE and mining industry prepares itself to build India´s infrastructure, Murphy is also gearing up to support and partner with OEMs in India. Very high on priority for Murphy is the æLocal Touch´ factor. The equipment integration needs to be done by people who understand the business and the technologies involved but more importantly need to be sensitive to the business dynamics in India, have local integration and customisation ability and be willing to play a role in working with the OEM in ensuring the end-customer gets what he/she wants. Understanding this very early, Murphy set up an office in Pune which today plays a leading role in customising and integrating the OEM equipment with all programmes and configurations made and tested in India.
