Fecon Fusion Platform Supports Mulcher Performance

Fusion automatically calibrates the attachment to the carrier in real-time to optimize performance, minimize downtime and expand the machine’s lifespan.

Fecon has launched Fusion, a telematics platform that uses dynamic features such as automatic machine calibration, location services and performance tracking, for mulching operations. Fusion automatically calibrates the attachment to the carrier in real-time to optimize performance, minimize downtime and expand the machine’s lifespan. Fusion is initially available on high-flow Bull Hog and Blackhawk attachments.

Fecon brings intelligent control technology to a new level in the mulching industry. Fusion automates mulcher set up through its Plug n’ Play design that eliminates manual setup and tuning. With this feature, customers can attach their mulcher to any compatible carrier and run the machine. The mulcher is optimized to the carrier and working conditions at all times.

The technology also continually collects and adapts to information based on dynamic conditions such as temperature, altitudes, carrier settings and more. At the start of the day Fusion will detect a cold carrier and automatically adjust and tailor machine settings to those that work best in colder temperatures. As the machine warms up throughout the day, Fusion will tune the settings for those higher temperatures. The machine starts learning as soon as it is attached to a carrier, but an operator can choose to initiate a learn sequence through the Fusion app.

“One of the biggest struggles both dealers and operators face is tuning the mulching head to the carrier,” said Ryan Bricker, Fecon senior product manager. “We’ve completely removed that hassle and any associated delay by offering this Plug n’ Play design. It ensures that no matter the carrier, its age and condition or the location and temperature, our customers will receive maximum performance out of the Fecon mulching head. And it makes it easy for them to swap carriers.”

Fusion continuously collects mulcher operational data to support operations. Fleet managers, for example, can use the data to assess and support machine performance, note a machine’s last location or identify problems in operations. Dealers can use the data to service their customers by identifying the source of a problem in machine function and make swift corrections.

Fusion works with the Fecon mobile application, available in the Apple App Store, allowing users to incorporate Fusion into their day-to-day operations. Users can use the Fecon Fusion app for several tasks, including changing the mulcher settings, initiating the learn function or simply viewing real-time information on how the mulcher is running. The real-time display offers operators access to information.

Fecon plans to continue to expand the Fusion system by adding additional features to the software such as performance modes that will allow users to automatically adjust machine settings to match the current job. Similar to a four-wheel drive vehicle where a user has the option to select “snow” or “mud” based on current conditions, the upcoming performance modes will tailor the mulcher to the optimal settings for that particular application.

“With Fusion, we’re adding so much value to the customer and simplifying the product. It has more technology, tools and expanded data capabilities, but it’s important that customers realize how easy it is to use," said Jeff Stanley, Fecon’s senior vice president of product development.
