Increase in compatibility and accessibility of products for machines

CPN hears the latest from engcon as the company increases the compatibility and accessibility of its products for machines.

In recent years, engcon has been developing a completely new control system for excavators, the DC3. Last May it announced that the DC3 was compatible with Cat Next Gen hydraulic excavators (NGH) and after extensive testing both in the workshop and with end customers, the company has recently announced that the DC3 is now compatible with even more of the leading excavator brands.

“We are happy about the fact that several excavator manufacturers can now connect to our new control system,” says Martin Engström, product manager at engcon. “With the new system we will really take digging to completely new levels; the system is smart, easy to install, with improved remote support and now there is also a new app for both iOS and Android.” he adds.

The following machines are now compatible with DC3:

  • CAT NG 313-335
  • Volvo eML EC140-300E, EW160-220E, ECR145-355E, EWR130-170E
  • Doosan DX 225LC-7X
  • Takeuchi TB395W

The company promises that the list of machine models is being constantly updated, so for the latest information on which machines can connect to DC3, go to

Alongside developments with the DC3, engcon is also launching a new size in its range of ground compactors to suit larger excavators in the 19 tonnes and above bracket and with the S70 or S80 attachment. 

engcon’s PC models of ground compactors have low-flow requirements and are specially developed for use under a tiltrotator, reducing the number of machines and tools required. In addition, safety is enhanced because no one has to be down in an excavation area that risks collapsing from the vibrations.

Like other hydraulic tools from engcon, the EC-Oil automatic quick coupler system is standard on the ground compactors. This means that they can be connected without having to leave the cab. The hydraulics are automatically connected with EC-Oil, which means that they save both time and money. Previously, engcon’s PC models were available in smaller sizes – now the new model is being launched for the larger excavators.

“It’s great to be able to offer another size in our PC series. This is another step in broadening our range, regardless of the size of the excavator, the end customer should be able to use our smart and efficient tools in their daily work to increase profitability,” adds Engström.

Advantages of the engcon PC models include:

  • Adapted for tiltrotators with EC-Oil.
  • EC-Oil automatic quick coupler system comes as standard.
  • More areas of use with a tiltrotator, where it was previously impossible to work, for example on steep slopes or embankments.
  • Newly designed vibrator unit/generator that increases compaction force whilst also reducing hydraulic flow.
  • No need to lift hand-operated ground vibrators that risk being dropped or swinging into personnel or the surroundings.
  • Fewer hoses to break and fray as no oil drain line is needed.
