Mohawk Lifts now offers touchscreen cotrols for its 18,000-, 24,000-, and 30,000-lb. capacity models. The touchscreen displays lift status, current post height, battery level (on DC units), total weight on all posts, and whether the unit load is lowered on the mechanical locks. An audio alarm signals if the lift is not lowered on the mechanical locks.
The touchscreen allows a shop to track individual employee productivity. A supervisor can set up a maximum of eight users and passwords while programming each user specific height maximums and lockout times. It also tracks individual usage and usage by cycles per day, per week, per month, and per year.
The maintenance screen displays service contact information, serial number, past and future inspection dates, and lifting cycles. For assistance, the system offers 21 help screens.
