The Madman Development’s roots are in the Automotive industry, having started with an early warning system and monitor for turbo diesel 4x4s, the requirements of the industry have been taken care of. We have a solution for you, from the humbleEMS1 and EMS2 we are expanding to a new colour unit as well as a customisable BRAVO! Unit that brings in a whole new wave of advanced monitoring and control systems.
The popularity of the products have enabled the system to spread out into other branches of the sector such as street cars, track cars, trucks and fleets
Yellow metal comes in many shapes and sizes but they all require very rugged, dust proof systems to take care of machines working in low maintenance, dusty and dirty environments by semi-skilled operators. Machines are expensive and downtime is even more costly.
The Madman BRAVO! System can address these issues with an optional IP68 enclosure, optional operator display, multiple inputs capable of reading hydraulic pressures and temperatures, engine variables, machine inclination (Angles of operation), geolocation and GSM to send operational shift data to the head office. If the machine is working in a zero coverage area, the system can log all operational data for years and download it when required, so you never miss a beat. The benefit being that all maintenance and potential breakdowns can be foreseen from the relative order manager’s office, off-site and action can be taken to remove a machine from service for repair before it breaks down on site or causes a safety risk to others.
The Madman BRAVO! Family of monitoring and control units have been developed to enable custom configurations to suit almost any application.
The mainboard of the unit can provide 8 outputs, some of which can provide analogue signals (PWM) for motor control or similar. There are multiple digital and analogue inputs able to read from almost any sensor or switch including temperatures, pressures, mass etc. Pulse counters can be configured for speed, rpm, flowrate, machine operations, product counting etc.
The inputs can be configured to read rpm, speed, flow (fuel, water, gas etc), temperatures (water, oil, engine, furnace, boiler, fridge etc) even special inputs can be accommodated such as mass from strain gauges, distances, light , acceleration, geographic variables like position, angle, acceleration, inclination.
