Good design, focuses on users
Ergonomic design, operating safety, but also comfort, pervades all elements of the design. The ErgoPlus operating system has, for instance, been further developed, gaining some additional useful features: The ErgoPlus 3 has a redesigned four-colour display / the graphic user interface / self-explanatory symbols.
VOGELE EcoPlus reduces emissions
The VOGELE EcoPlus low-emissions package combines a number of individual measures distinctly reducing the fuel consumption and noise of Dash 3 pavers: Energy-optimised tamper drive, variable speed fan , controlled hydraulic oil temperature circuit , pavedock assistant , sprung Pavedock push rollers, automated processes with AutoSet Plus are some distinct features of the new Dash 3 generation pavers .
PaveDock Assistant the clever link between feed vehicle and paver
This exceedingly efficient system greatly facilitates communication between the paver operator and the driver of the feed vehicle, and it ensures that the mix is supplied to the paver safely and without jolts. In this way, PaveDock substantially improves process reliability during transfer of the material.
Signal lights on the paver and the associated controls on the paver operator´s ErgoPlus 3 console are key components of the PaveDock communication system. The paver has two signal lights mounted on the right and left of the hardtop. With these lights, the paver operator can give the driver of the feed vehicle unmistakable signals, indicating what needs to be done (eg, reverse, stop, dump mix). Two lights, each in an elevated position on the paver´s hardtop, ensures that all signals are clearly visible to the driver of the feed vehicle from all angles of approach.
Sprung PaveDock push-rollers
In addition to the PaveDock Assistant, Vogele now also offer the innovative sprung PaveDock push-rollers as an optional extra. This particularly robust system efficiently absorbs impacts when the feed vehicle docks onto the paver. In combination, these two systems ensure maximum process reliability when transferring the mix.
A sensor installed in the sprung PaveDock push-rollers sends a signal to the PaveDock Assistant whenever a feed vehicle has docked onto the paver. The signal lights automatically display a Stop symbol and the driver of the feed vehicle can react immediately. In this way, the combination of PaveDock Assistant and the new PaveDock push-rollers ensures a particularly smooth transfer of material without jolts.
Cutting-edge drive technology for perfect laydown rates
Every Dash 3 paver is driven by a modern, powerful, and totally reliable diesel engine. It ensures that the pavers apply their laydown rate to the road at exactly the defined pave speed.
