SSC6100 Control System

FORCE America's 6100 Control System is the industry's premier integrated joystick and spreader control system featuring a vivid 7" color LCD and true CAN bus connectivity.

Others have misapplied CAN bus, using it only for communication between joysticks and in-cab hardware. FORCE America has unleashed the full potential of distributed control networks, dramatically reducing wiring not just in the cab, but throughout the entire snow fighting vehicle. With the 6100, intelligent CAN bus modules are strategically placed in the hydraulic valve enclosure, on the spreader body and elsewhere to shorten cable lengths and provide local diagnostics.

Today's snow fighting vehicle must adapt to changing conditions, and slide-in spreader bodies and towable trailer implements are more popular than ever. Because of its VISIONARY design, the 6100 now offers unmatched ease of use and flexibility, enabling 6100-equipped vehicles to connect to all major spreader body types and removable implements through a single rugged connector.

It's the kind of VISIONARY leadership our customers have come to expect from FORCE America.
