54 • April 2019 INNOVATIONS EQUIPMENT & PRODUCTS The Model PC is a rugged safety stop control, actuated by a pull cord and providing a quick positive shut off of conveyors and other powered plant equipment. The device's one or two microswitch out- puts can control up to two separate circuits, depending on the model chosen, and include one for machinery shutdown, one for alarm. The Model PC was developed to meet stringent safety agency requirements throughout the world. Standard housing is corrosion resistant cast aluminum, with an optional polyester or black epoxy powder coating. Units are left-, right- or double-ended. The flag arm must be manually reset after a problem has been corrected. An external red indicating light is avail- able as an option. — Conveyor Components Co., 800/233-3233; www. Emergency equipment shut off New boom technology holds the potential to take the concrete pumping business to new levels, Schwing America contends. The Revolution boom on the S 36 X truck-mounted concrete pump offers what company engineers note are unmatched maneuverabil- ity and speed, with continuous 360-degree articulation of the tip section and 330-degrees of third section articulation. Hydraulic motors replace the last two cylinders of the four-section boom to provide the additional coverage. "The 36 Revolution is the most innovative boom technology to come along in decades," notes Schwing Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing Tom O'Malley. "The possibilities are truly unlimited. This will be the most requested pump in any fleet." The 36 X with Revolution boom provides 115 ft., 6 in. of reach. Compact X-style outriggers set-up with a 20-ft., 5-in. outrigger spread. A 730-degree slewing range (365-degree left and right) aug- ments fast set-up and affords versatility to overcome jobsite obstacles. The standard 2025H-5 pump kit offers 178 yd./hour output and 23 strokes/minute. The Vector Control system provides wireless pro- portional joystick maneuvering of the boom, a critical feature as operators use the Revolution's expanded articulation to place concrete in areas they have never reached before. — Schwing America, St. Paul, Minn.; 651/429-0999 Revolution pump boom reaches new maneuverability, speed benchmarks
