What's New In Plant & Equipment

New Upgraded Smartlink Control System New Upgraded Smartlink Control System

Genie announces that the updated SmartLink Control System for its Genie GS Slab scissors and Runabouts product family have now been implemented for the EMEAR Region (Europe, Middle East, Africa and Russia).

Driven by customer feedback, the SmartLink system upgrade includes a new, simplified platform controller user interface, as well as additional functionality such as proportional lift and drive control on the joystick.

The upgrade will also reduce hand fatigue by replacing the “push and hold” with a “momentary push” button to begin lifting on the joystick.

Outriggers are also controlled by the joystick. To make user experience even easier on existing machines, the upgrade may be quickly retrofitted in the field.

The SmartLink upgrade is a clear example of how we continuously improve our products to provide additional value to our customers

said Carlo Forini, Director of Business Development & Product Management, Terex AWP EMEAR.
Available to order via Genie Parts, a SmartLink upgrade retro-fit kit including software update, controller overlay replacement, upgrade decal kit and replacement manuals can be installed easily in the field without replacing platform or ground control units.

The SmartLink system upgrade applies to Genie scissor and portable products that use the SmartLink control system including the GR, GRC, QS, GS slab scissors and GS-69 DC and GS-69 BE Series.


Vibratory plates with only good vibrations

Vibratory plates with only good vibrationsThe latest innovation for reversible vibratory plates from Wacker Neuson in the weight class from 300 to 800 kilograms (or 40 to 100 kN of compaction performance) reduces vibration values to less than 1.5 m/s² for hand-arm vibrations. According to the Directive 2002/44/EC, the operator may, therefore work without a time limitation with this equipment.

With a new damping concept, Wacker Neuson has managed to reduce the hand-arm vibrations to a value that allows the operator to work without a time limitation and at the same time provides for more comfort and safety.

The diesel-powered vibratory plates DPU 4545, DPU 5545 and DPU 6555 achieve values of less than 1.5 m/s². The DPU 4045 lies at just 0.9 m/s².

The advantages for customers are obvious: they have powerful vibratory plates, save time and money due to the reduced documentation and training effort and operators benefit from the low hand-arm vibrations, which ensure more comfortable and gentle work.

With the introduction of the new center pole, Wacker Neuson is now offering the entire product series of reversible vibratory plates - from 140 to 800 kilograms with an operating time of at least one working day. The vibration values are below the trigger value of 2.5 m/s²; for the 30 kN equipment vibration values are below the exposure limit of 5 m/s² (permissible working time: 8 hours per day).
