Intelli-Guide Auto-Dispatch System Columbus McKinnon’s new system is used to upgrade and automate outdated, manually controlled cranes, hoists and monorail systems. Using Magnetek radios, drives and automation programming integrated with motors and brakes, it allows operators to automatically send a load to different pre-programmed areas in a facility with the push of a button. Featuring automatic speed control, it can be used to safely and precisely position a hoist, crane or monorail. The system is available with various levels of control for setting pathways, locations and height limits and for enabling automatic raising and lowering capabilities.
What’s new? The Intelli-Guide Auto-Dispatch System, which the company customizes to fit the requirements of each application.
Benefits Improved efficiency and safety. The automated system frees up operators for other tasks, reduces the potential for human error and helps prevent collisions with other equipment. It also eliminates the need for operators to have specialized skills or knowledge of lifting technology, sway control or protected zones.
