"Modern man reacts and is stimulated by visual input. All through our daily lives we are bombarded with visual input, via our mobiles, TV, computer screens, billboards, cinema, road signs and a host of other mechanisms designed to draw our attention. Much of this input is absorbed for immediate or later use, and yet more is subliminal, driving impulses and desires we did not even know we had"
RTS Bureau Centre in action
, says John Valentine, Director at Real Telematics (RTS).
This of course is also increasingly true in the evolutionary world of Materials Handling. Many brands now offer their machinery with driver displays that do various things. So who are we to buck the trend? RTS is never content to do what everyone else does, with some differences of course.
Naturally first to market has many benefits, and often puts you years ahead of the competition. But there is something to be said about coming second, note not last, in that you can learn, enhance and improve on what has come before you at a fraction of the cost whilst still perpetuating your own first to market strategies in other areas.

With that said, RTS recently launched its modular Driver Display unit that can act as a standalone or as part of the full FMX Forklift Management System
, offering some features that depart from the standard. Firstly the FMX Display can be fitted to ANY brand of machine and can be transferred between brand types. FMX Display also offers multi-tier Access Control, via normal Tag On or Tag On plus Pin Code or Tag On, plus Pin Code plus Driver Check List or Tag On, plus Pin Code plus Bonnet Open (IC machines) plus Driver Check, before a machine will be allowed to start.
I think we are all aware that on many sites the Daily Check Lists, if they exist, are ticked off with great flair and interesting artworks, sometimes filed, or relegated to file 13, often without getting within 100 metres of the machine. FMX Display records and stores the check online for later recovery if necessary, and can be used as part of the greater driver scorecard process - a great stationery budget reduction. No, no you can thank us later, there is still more. FMX Display is rugged and robust, designed for African and similar conditions and has other handy features such as Speed and Revs (IC) and Speed and Battery Voltage (Elec), Alerts, Fault conditions and reasons for shut down. And a whole lot more, coming to a forklift near you real soon.
Of course, fakes and attempted clones exist too. "I" for effort and "T" for pass, but FMX remains the only product to have Engine Protection, Access Control, Speed Limiting, Transmission Protection, Battery Protection, Starter Motor Protection, Idle Cut Out, Positioning, Driver Display and Load Management (with more) in a single control box. But that's not all folks, FMX
is fully modular, transferrable and supported by world-class web-based software.
Just when you thought that was all, FMX
offers a Bureau Service to manage it all for you. Buy now, and also get Peace of Mind free of charge.
