Ultimate precision and safety in the most challenging environments
Introducing RemoteTask™ for Cat® D-series loaders
RemoteTask was created to give operators all the control and response they need, while staying at a safe distance from dirty, cluttered, or dangerous environments. Modular by design, units can be transferred from one loader to another loader quickly and easily.
RemoteTask’s controls were designed to feel immediately familiar to operators, responding naturally to all control inputs. The controller’s engine RPM, hydraulic flow, and creeper controls allow for smooth, precise movements.
The system makes operating in challenging environments safer for the operator, and those around the loader. Mounted indicator lights and buzzers indicate the unit is live and ready to move, and haptic feedback via control stick vibration ensures the operator is always aware of any system warnings.
The controller’s layout is designed to be familiar and comfortable for operators, with natural, lag-free response to operator inputs. You’ll have full control over all machine movements, as well as hydraulic control for more than 200 work tools.
The two primary joysticks control machine motion and arm/tool movements, just as they would in the cab. Secondary functions (horn and aux electrical controls) are available via buttons on the joysticks.
To save engine wear and tear, digital RPM control allows a full range of engine speeds, from resting at idle to higher speeds for faster travel or intense work. Creeper control allows for steady, slow-speed motion.
For normal or intense work, increase pressure for more power and speed. For precision placement of work tools, lower hydraulic pressure for slower arm and tool movement.
The controller panel indicates signal strength, battery life, and machine fuel levels. Indicator lights also show good (green), ok (amber), and warning (red) status for a range of machine functions such as engine temp, hydraulics, and more. Tactile vibrations in the sticks alert the operator to any warning status.
In emergency situations, large SafeStop buttons on the machine and the controller immediately stop the machine, engage the hydraulic lockout, and shut down the engine.
