Intelli-Connect Diagnostics and Analytics app
Intelli-Connect Diagnostics and Analytics app
New app from Columbus McKinnon Buffalo, NY, United States Columbus McKinnon has introduced the Intelli-Connect Diagnostics and Analytics app which provides crane and hoist users access to detailed system information on their tablet or smartphone. With diagnostic information available at their fingertips, customers can address issues faster, reducing the mean time to recover, plan maintenance and ultimately increase uptime. "This new remote diagnostic and analytic solution delivers critical status information from a Magnetek variable frequency drive on a crane or hoist to the Intelli-Connect Mobile App, providing insight into how equipment is being used to ensure proper and timely maintenance," says Peter Stipan, global director of Columbus McKinnon's Automation Division. "By accessing information directly on a tablet or smartphone, operators no longer need to climb up to the drive, power down, and connect hardware to access status information, thus eliminating potentially hazardous situations." By incorporating this technology into an overhead crane or hoist, users can quickly and easily program, monitor and troubleshoot equipment. The mobile app is available as a free download on Google Play or the Apple App Store.
