Configurable widgets enable operators to customize their screen and receive context-sensitive alerts to increase engagement with the forklift.
NEW BREMEN, Ohio – Crown Equipment Corporation has introduced a larger, more robust display module for its forklifts equipped with the company’s InfoLinkfleet and operator management system.
The information presented on the InfoLink 7” Touch Display Module’s adjustable colour LCD display creates a more informative and personalized experience for operators. For example, intuitive and easy-to-read menus and configurable widgets enable operators to customize their screen and receive context-sensitive alerts to increase engagement with the forklift.
Three programmable-performance modes, as well as multiple language support, allow for equipment operation to be tailored to each user.
“We believe deployment of any technology must immediately disprove the misperception that it is more complex than the prior solution. This is why our design thinking approach includes studying how operators interact with our forklifts to better understand work context, physiological needs and cognitive requirements,” said Kim Stachler, marketing connected product manager, Crown Equipment Corporation.
An operator checklist with images at login helps ensure inspection compliance, while on-screen safety reminders and Dynamic Coaching messaging during operation reinforce operator training and deliver real-time feedback to operators.
Built-in wireless connectivity provides access to enterprise networks and allows sharing of real-time data for productivity tracking and preventive service, among many other uses. Wireless firmware downloads ensure new features can be leveraged for additional functionality and accommodate future application requirements as customer needs evolve.
