Stertil-Koni adds touch-screen control system to Diamondlift product

Stertil-Koni has incorporated its advanced, full-color, touch-screen control console, known as the ebright Smart Control System, into the company’s popular, state-of-the-art high-pressure inground telescopic piston lifting system — the DIAMONDLIFT.

First deployed on Stertil-Koni wireless mobile column lifts in 2015, the ebright Smart Control System has been integrated into the company’s battery-operated cable mobile column lifts as well as the ultra-shallow, full-rise, axle-engaging in-ground scissor-lifting system, the ECOLIFT.

The addition of the ebright Smart Control System in the above ground console makes the ongoing operation and monitoring of DIAMONDLIFT even easier — placing all critical information directly at the fingertips of the person who needs it most — the busy technician on the shop floor.

“What’s particularly special is that technicians and their managers can now see in real-time how the lifts are being used, observe warning and service alerts, and monitor the lift’s motor run timer,” said Matthias Lennemann, sales manager for heavy-duty in-ground lifts at Stertil-Koni. “It’s a great way to more efficiently track the equipment, schedule upkeep and use maintenance dollars more effectively.”

From a broader perspective, the ebright Smart Control System is an extension of the concept of human-machine-interface, providing greater control of the vehicle lift in a very familiar, electronic notepad-style delivery system.

This enhancement also comes at a time in which Stertil-Koni has engineered several additional advances into the DIAMONDLIFT, including an optional continuous recess system that allows the bolster to recess flush to the floor anywhere in the horizontal range of piston travel. Further, the company has unveiled a differential adapter, an accessory that “cradles” the differential and is self-centering thanks to spring loaded ball bearings (meaning it centers itself underneath the differential), making the setup and use quick, easy, convenient, and safe.

The DIAMONDLIFT, designed to accommodate vehicles with extremely low ground clearances, has a lifting capacity up to 35,000 lbs. per piston, or a total of 105,000 lbs. in the three-piston configuration. It is available in two versions: “cassette” and “frame."
