EGON: Equipment Guidance and Operation Network



Ripon, California U.S.A. April 2, 2013 – Guntert & Zimmerman (G&Z) EGON: Equipment Guidance and Operation Network is a Next Generation Operator Control System that incorporates user friendly features, a modular state of the art network of controllers, extensive onboard and remote monitoring options, and diagnostic capability to allow superior ease of use and troubleshooting. G&Z’s first engineering goal is to manufacture paving equipment that “Maximizes Available Paving Time and Minimizes Everything Else.” The G&Z software engineering team has designed EGON to meet this standard. It has never been easier to operate, reconfigure, diagnose, and manage a piece of concrete paving equipment. EGON is available on all G&Z slipform paving equipment models.


EGON Onboard Operator Interface

EGON’s Operator Interface features both an operator console and a TFT LCD Display that is mounted directly above the console. The Operator Interface is designed to be intuitive and ergonomically sound. The operator console is designed in a compact package to allow it to be easily moved anywhere along the handrail of the operator platform to fit operator preference. The operator console features intuitively organized switches which are labeled with standard ISO symbols making this a durable, easy to use, and multi-lingual user interface. The EGON TFT LCD display includes the latest in mobile interface technology such as high resolution, an anti-glare color screen, sensor controlled backlighting ensuring optimal legibility under all ambient light conditions, and CAN, RS-232, and USB interfaces for all control system updates and diagnostics. Monitoring paver performance has never been easier. The EGON display gives an all-in-one overview of the paver’s extensive systems including: the status of all machine I/O (inputs and outputs), system faults, electronic monitoring of all hydraulic pump pressure and filter conditions (clog monitoring with alarm), fuel level, individual forward/reverse track pressure, and machine configuration and mode. In addition to status, EGON also allows the operator to modify important machines settings including: paver dimensions, sensor calibration, gain values, crown and slope adjustments, and the ability to change machine travel modes via an easy-to-use automated process. In short, EGON has taken the average paver operator’s experience to a new technological level.


EGON Semi-Automated Paver Reconfiguration

G&Z’s software engineering team has taken paver operation and reconfiguration levels that have not been seen in the concrete industry in the past. With semi-automated processes for many features and configurations it’s never been easier to operate a piece of slipform paving equipment.  EGON’s onboard TFT Display will walk the operator through the automated steps as well as directing the steps required by ground personnel. The mode reconfiguration processes include the following: paving to 90 degree, paving to counter-rotate, paving to transport, and of course back to paving from each respective mode. These semi-automated processes ensure the reconfiguration is done correctly and saves the contractor time.


EGON Remote Operator Interface and Diagnostic System

EGON also features a powerful remote diagnostics/monitoring system that will allow any machine owner to protect their investment. The G&Z software engineering team has added to the already extensive onboard capabilities and designed a web based remote user interface to allow maximum connectivity anywhere in the world. Some of these capabilities include: the ability to download program updates, input and output monitoring, remote troubleshooting to reduce service visits, error codes emailed to the customer and G&Z in real-time, connectivity via WiFi or GSM, GPS technology to monitor location, data logging, maintenance reminders, remote setting changes, etc. To summarize all of these potential machine events, EGON will even send the customer and G&Z a detailed report at the end of a predetermined machine runtime for constant monitoring and peace of mind. Truly the sky is the limit with this system, and the potential customer savings over the life of the paver are limitless. EGON has once again taken machine connectivity and service to the next level, and this new system will allow G&Z to always be connected.


NoLine and EGON
NoLine: Stringless Preparation Kit can be included as an option on all G&Z Pavers and Support Equipment. NoLine is comprised of an EGON software upgrade and a hardware kit. NoLine EGON Software Upgrade integrates the use of third-party stringless technology directly into the machine's CANBus network. The NoLine Hardware Kit provides telescopic masts for the total station prisms (only necessary on pavers) and battery backup. NoLine makes paving stringless easy through reliable, proven and integrated software.


EGON Asset Management

EGON’s remote features also make it capable of being used as an asset management system. The EGON online interface will display engine hours, notify the user when a machine is online, and provide location details of the asset itself.  This is a great tool for the equipment managers while in the office. It also brings peace of mind when parking a machine in a remote location or in winter storage.

  11. Brian T companies will always use you to definitely pay back any type of unguaranteed mortgage and help a person as much as possible so long as you keep in contact. You may want to pay back the loan earlier but don't forget that a few loan companies will charge an excess for doing it, it is cheaper occasionally to let your unprotected mortgage operate its program for the decided repayment time period.
