Vacall™ Introduces Innovative Control System
at Global Trade Show

March 21, 2011

New Philadelphia, OH — A wired or wireless programmable pendant and a color LCD screen will be featured on Vacall's AllSmartFlow™ CAN bus control system, which is being introduced at ConExpo-Con/Agg in Las Vegas, March 22 – 26. Vacall products will be in Booth 150 in the Gold Lot.

"Vacall is excited to introduce the AllSmartFlow, which is a control system that allows operators to make more precise boom and reel adjustments," said Bill Petrole, vice president of Vacall products for Gradall Industries, Inc. "This system has pioneering functions that can measurably improve the operating efficiency of our Vacall sewer cleaning and hydro excavation machines."

Procedures such as engine performance, water flow and vacuum functions, can be monitored in detail through the programmable LCD display. An automatic water pressure compensator delivers precise jetting action.

"The AllSmartFlow system can be kept free of any possible damage because it is located inside a protective cabinet," said Petrole. "The programmable pendent is fully proportional and you get the option of it being either wired or wireless."

Due to the pendant's unique features, it's now easier to work away from the chassis. It allows for more productive control and it's simple to use.

ConExpo-Con/Agg is held every three years and is expected to attract 150,000 people from around the world to see equipment innovations on display in 2.2 million square feet of exhibit space.

On display with the Vacall AllSmartFlow CAN bus control system will be Vacall's AllExcavate, a new hydro excavator. Also in Booth 150 will be Gradall's new Series IV highway-speed excavator, two new street sweepers by Schwarze Industries and a Rivard trencher.
