Crusher automation

ACS-c 5

Powerful automation without the complication

Introducing the new ACS-c 5 for Sandvik 800i cone crusher series – our most powerful user-friendly automation system to date. By integrating the powerful capabilities of all crusher modules and subsystems into a single automation system, we’ve made 800i crushers easy and intuitive to use.

Designed around the needs of the people who use them

The latest 800i crushers with new ACS-c 5 combine simple yet robust mechanical design with powerful user-friendly automation to better support diverse operational roles. The new role-based interaction functionality facilitates the work of operators, maintenance personnel, and engineers by offering guidance, access to valuable data, and tools for proactive maintenance and optimization.

Clarified responsibility with role-based interaction


  • The automation system guides the operator through alarms and recommended actions, streamlining the decision-making process during alerts and minimizing the impact of potential issues
  • This guidance helps operators achieve their targets without the concern of losing shifts due to downtime
  • Easy access to manuals facilitates quick self-help, empowering operators to address issues independently and efficiently


  • The maintenance personnel have access to an improved historical and operational data log, providing a comprehensive overview of the crusher’s performance
  • The inclusion of 90-day historical logs allows for in-depth analysis and tracking of the equipment’s performance over an extended period
  • Advanced tools aid in defining, improving, and updating maintenance schedules, contributing to more effective and proactive maintenance practices

Process/reliability engineer

  • The new automation system offers engineers more opportunities to monitor, analyze, and optimize the crusher’s performance
  • The ability to create crusher programs and fine-tune system limits allows for a more customized and optimized operation
  • Performance optimization through insights on feed conditions, load cycles, pressure distribution and uncrushable objects
  • Proactive warnings generated by the system help prevent unplanned maintenance downtime, enabling service engineers to address issues before they escalate

This is ACS-c 5

One system for complete crusher control

  • Process and equipment focus, all in one user interface
  • One modular system for monitoring and controlling all crusher sub-systems
  • All sensors in collaboration for protection, predictions and maintenance planning

Tools to simplify troubleshooting and optimization

  • Alarms with recommended actions to reduce downtime
  • Instructions with search feature
  • Alarm and event logs to find connections and recurring problems
  • Historical trends for analyzing data
  • Unlimited logging of calibrations and daily operational data
  • Easy-access to your digital manuals

Full supervision and remote control with seamless integration to plant

  • Prepared for the most common communication protocols — More than 500 signals available for supervision
  • Remote control of all commands needed for operation
  • Communication monitoring for secured and safe control — Plant system clock synchronization

Crusher reliability with proven automatic setting regulation

  • Based on ASRi system algorithm, continuously improved since 2002
  • Intuitive and easy recognition for operators with previous ASRi experience
  • Simplifies training and operation

Clarified responsibility with role-based interaction

  • Predefined and configurable user levels — Permissions based on responsibility

Increased availability with optimized alarm management

  • Alarm classes based on severity-of-consequence and time response needed
  • Postponed equipment shut-down and bypass options in case of non-critical alarms

ACS through the years

In 1967, Sandvik introduced our very first automation system to the market. Over the years, there has been a continual evolution of crusher control systems to optimize the performance of our crushers. Explore the ACS evolution.
