Gilbert Control and Assistance System: efficient and intuitive

The Gilbert Control and Assistance System supplied with the unit connects the pile driver to the hydraulic excavator. A high-quality ergonomic joystick attaches to the excavator’s factory joystick and allows the operator to effectively control all functions of the vibro. The system is removable and easy to install on all excavator models.

The system comes with an Operator Assistance System that indicates the verticality of the profile using an angle sensor that transmits data in real time to an intuitive screen, providing continuous assistance to the operator.

Options

Adjustable-Frequency Function

The Adjustable-Frequency Function added onto the Gilbert Control System allows the operator to adjust the driving force of the vibro in order to obtain the optimal frequency according to the driving conditions. Using a knob-type potentiometer mounted on the joystick, the operator is able to optimally set the rpm using the visual indicator. This helps increase the performance during the driving process.

Key Benefits:

• Easy adjustment of the driving force to adapt to the conditions and thus increase the performance of the vibro-hammer
• Adjustment range from 2200 to 2800 rpm
• Active or not, depending on the choice of the operator
• Does not require any changes during installation

Semi-Automatic Steering System

Easy to Install and User-friendly

The Semi-Automatic Steering System allows the operator to put the excavator bucket cylinder on a floating mode during the pile driving process using the standard joystick. Once the first section of the pile is driven, the floating mode will significantly helps maintaining the initial angle of the pile without having to continuously adjust the movements of the boom throughout the action resulting in a steady pace.

Key Features

Precision
The system ensures the desired angle of the piles during ramming, as well as rapid, smooth, and consistent driving, without zigzag effect.

Durability
The system reduces friction between the sheet piles interlocks, thus ensuring their long-term durability. Moreover, it extends the life cycle of the equipment by significantly reducing lateral pressures on the piles and Gilbert Grizzly Multigrip vibratory pile driver components.

Versatility
The operator can select between floating or standard driving mode.

Low cost
In addition to helping you get the job done faster and limiting the risk of failure, this is an easy to install, low-cost alternative.
