TDOS-1 with SmartTouch is a new operating system that allows pipe handling functions to be performed using a single input on the joystick in SmartTouch operating mode.
Available as an option on the DD2024 directional drill, TDOS-1 with SmartTouch allows the operator to use the cam rocker switch to advance through the pipe handling process. Each push of the switch corresponds to a sequence of pipe handling functions. This makes the pipe handling process easy to learn, improving the operating experience for new operators, Toro says.
Combined with mode selection (drill out or pull back), the SmartTouch feature also performs some pipe handling functions in tandem.
TDOS-1 with SmartTouch can be installed on existing units, and the company recommends that all DD2024 machines currently in operation be updated to either TDOS-1 or the Classic Revision V software as part of a regularly scheduled maintenance program.
