McNeilus Releases Command Center

January 21, 2014

McNeilus Companies, an Oshkosh Corp. company, released the new McNeilus Command Center on its selection of mixer systems. The touchscreen electronic controls will be available on the company’s Bridgemaster and Standard mixers. The Command Center controls are currently featured at the McNeilus booth C6447 at the World of Concrete in Las Vegas, through Jan. 24.

“The new McNeilus Command Center dash-mounted electronic controls offer ready-mix drivers and fleet managers an enhanced level of control, and set the new industry benchmark,” said Brad Nelson, Oshkosh Corp. senior vice president and president of McNeilus Companies. “The driver-friendly touchscreen and joystick controls are intuitive and easy-to-use. We’re excited to have the new controls on display at the World of Concrete.”

The McNeilus Command Center controls are engineered specifically for ready-mix vehicle applications. They feature a series of touchscreen controls (with intuitive graphic icons), with available joystick. The driver is able to control all aspects of drum charging and discharging, drum rotation, chute control options, Bridgemaster controls and more. The system integrates built-in interlocks that will not allow the mixer system to operate outside predetermined parameters. With reduced wiring and integrated self-diagnostics, reliability is enhanced and maintenance is simplified.
