Winter spreading without the expense of central hydraulics Ground-speed-oriented electric spreader motor control system eliminates the need for a central hydraulics system The EMC 1055 electric motor control system from Certified Cirus Control Systems offers fleet managers and truck upfitters an alternative to installing a central hydraulics system on snowplow trucks.

snow and ice removal applications, CCCS engineered the system to reliably control three individual highamperage motors, each with its own independent amperage capacity and settable digital limits. As an open-loop ground-speedoriented electronic spreader control system, the EMC 1055 is configured to automatically and accurately spread liquid and/or granular materials on winter roadway surfaces based on the speed of a snowplow truck. Upfitters or end users can also configure the The newest addition to the Certified

“We developed the EMC 1055 system in response to a growing demand for spreader power options when central hydraulics are not needed for powering motors or lift functions on a snowplow truck,” said Paul Mortell, CCCS president.

snow-and-ice-removal product line is the EMC 1055 electric motor control system. The all-in-one system provides proportional control of the direct current electric motors used to power liquid or granular spreaders as well as a ground-speed-oriented electronic spreader control system. The EMC 1055 system can help reduce purchase, installation, operation and maintenance costs for truck applications ranging from landscaping

CCCS designed the EMC 1055 electric motor control system to manage the high-amperage, heavy-duty electric motors used in present-day winter road maintenance operations. To best support the power needs of today’s

With a ground-speed triggered set up, liquid and material flow is automatically halted when the truck is stopped. Under a manual set up, the snowplow truck operator is in charge of setting output rates regardless of truck motion. Users of electric motors to power spreader components recognize that an electric motor will consume as much amperage supplied to it from the vehicle/battery. To prevent motor

To prevent motor and/or cable damage, CCCS designed the EMC 1055 system with “automatic digital current limitations” that are both factory set and field adjustable.
