This SAE Information Report applies to the control circuits and devices associated with the electrical propulsion system used on electric drive dumpers. Dumper is defined in J/ISO 6165. The document does not apply to auxiliary equipment control systems such as: a. battery charging systems; b. engine wiring and control; c. monitoring and control circuits not directly affecting the operation of the electric propulsion and retarding system; d. lighting; and e. accessory systems (heating, air conditioning, horns, radios, emergency steering, fire protection, and similar functions).
This document establishes requirements for the control circuits and control devices of the electric propulsion system of an electric drive dumper. Criteria are established for environmental service conditions, control systems requirements, control device operational requirements and control tests.
