Yale Materials Handling Corporation Showcases New Yale Vision Wireless Asset Management System at ProMat 2013Wednesday, January 23, 2013
Lift truck fleets will be getting more efficient and productive as Yale Materials Handling Corporation introduced its Yale Vision today at ProMat 2013. The wireless asset management system provides enhanced levels of monitoring and control to reduce the cost of operating lift trucks.
“Yale Vision is a result of Yale’s continued commitment to servicing our lift truck customers beyond just the lift truck itself,” said Bill Pfleger, president of Yale Distribution. “Products and services like the new Yale Vision tracking and monitoring system provide crucial data to make our customers’ operations more efficient. Working with their customers and this level of information, Yale® dealers will further enhance their reputation for service. Our customers trust us to bring them solutions, and this technology is another way Yale dealers will deliver.”
The Yale Vision system provides a tiered offering of wireless monitoring, wireless access and wireless verifications. With basic monitoring, lift truck operations are able to utilize a variety of tracking capabilities, including hour meter, cost of operations, periodic maintenance, fault code, impact monitoring, operator training, parking brake and seat belt violation and speed alerts. This breadth of monitoring helps operations effectively manage the fleet of lift trucks and their operators to aid in providing greater productivity and efficiency. Emails can also be sent automatically when certain faults or impacts occur, improving information available when reviewing incidents.
With the wireless access tier added on, operations receive the monitoring level as well as operator access control and idle shutdown control. For operator access, Yale Vision knows who is operating the equipment and can keep untrained personnel from accessing or operating a piece of equipment. This increased operator accountability can improve driving behaviors and reduce damage or repair needs to equipment. The idle shutdown feature will power off equipment following a pre-identified amount of time if the equipment is tracked as idling or unattended, reducing excess fuel costs and preventing running equipment from being left unattended.
The wireless verification tier builds on the previous two by further reducing management of a fleet’s equipment through checklist tracking. This feature offers prompt verification of equipment issues, allowing them to be addressed and resolved as quickly as possible, reducing expenses or potential downtime. With a further hardware investment, Yale Vision can be linked to existing WIFI resources. For more information about Yale Vision, visit www.yale.com.View all Industry News
