CB52 Dual Control Box

Automatic Laser Machine Control

PRODUCT INFORMATION CB52

Automatic blade control improves finishing

operations by increasing accuracy and optimizing

efficiency. This results in fewer machine passes

saving time and fuel. Additional profits are

generated by material savings, reduced labor, and

less downtime waiting for grade checks. If you have

finish grading work, the affordable TORNADO F2

system has a quick return on investment.

The CB52 Dual Control Box takes the TORNADO

automatic blade control system to the next level - F2.

The dual system is designed to simultaneously

control the lift and tilt of a dozer blade or two

independent lift sides for a grader blade type

arrangement.

F2 systems can be used on a wide range of

machines. Flexibility and ruggedness were

designed into the systems. Skid steer attachments

ranging from dozer blades, box blades and grader

attachments as well as bulldozers and tractors

with grading implements can be automated.

Applications include building pads, house pads,

and sports fields.

The CB52 Control Box typically mounts in the

cab of the machine and works in conjunction with

BULLSEYE® laser receivers to automatically control

construction or agricultural grading machinery for

earthmoving and grading applications. Reference

elevation from a rotating laser is received by the

BULLSEYE receivers and sent to the control box.

This information is processed and directs the

hydraulic valves to maintain the blade on-grade.

The system offers true proportional control for fast,

smooth, and accurate operation and works with

proportional time (PT), proportional current (PC)

and proportional voltage (PV) valves.

Compatibility:

The CB52 Control Box is compatible with BULLSEYE

Laser Receivers. BULLSEYE receivers are highly

flexible, extremely rugged and can be used on a

wide range of machines, including dozers, backhoes,

scrapers, skid steers and excavators.

Full capabilities, including slope control, can

be obtained using the BULLSEYE 5+ or 6. The

BULLSEYE 5MC is an economical choice if it will

only be used for automatic control.

The BULLSEYE 5+, 5MC, and 6 feature full

proportional control for high precision grading.

The control box in conjunction with BULLSEYE 3+

will yield limited functionality and is mainly reserved

for use on slower moving, agricultural equipment.

LED's:

A 9-light LED array on each side of the

main LCD screen indicates on-grade with

a green bar and direction to grade with

red arrows.

Automatic or manual LED's are located just

below the grade LED's and are visible at

a glance giving current selection.

The control box consists of three main areas - an

LCD, 3 switches, and an LED array on each side.

Liquid Crystal Display

The large easy to read LCD displays system

information when in the operating mode.  Machine

configuration, reference elevation numbers and 

control sources are all instantly visible at a glance.

On-grade location, current laser strike location and

grade matching reception range are visible in the

sensor position window giving a quick assessment

of adjustment options.

Settings for the deadband (accuracy) and hydraulic

speed (gain) are adjustable in the user setup menu.

Reference elevation, units of measure, and screen

brightness and contrast can also be selected or

adjusted by the operator. Setups for four different

applications or machines can be stored and recalled.

Switches

The main power switch is located in the front center of

the box. This toggle switch is used to access the user

setup mode and the operating mode. It is also used

to bring up help screens and other information.

Automatic / manual selection and raise / lower functions

for each side are combined into one multi-switch for

ease of operation. These multi-switches also control

grade matching, centering/resetting the laser strike

location, and dialing in numeric adjustments to the

receivers. The same multi-switch is typically used

on the optional remote switch.

Wiring Diagram

Cable part numbers are configured that the dash number (-XX) indicates the cut cable length in feet.

Cables are typically stocked in 5 foot increments.

Slope Control:

When combined with BULLSEYE 5+ or 6 receivers,

the CB52 can control both the lift and slope of a

blade with one receiver. The internal slope sensors

in the receivers are used as the slope control

source. Although not as fast responding as a

second receiver, it does offer an economical single

receiver solution.

Cross Coupling:

In addition to advanced processing technology, the

CB52  features Cross Coupling Compensation. This

feature actively anticipates blade movement and

stabilizes the blade reducing "duckwalking" errors

commonly associated with other systems.
