Stertil-Koni now offering cabled mobile colum lifts with touch screen control

Posted on April 13, 2017

Heavy-duty vehicle lift supplier Stertil-Koni is now shipping battery-operated cabled mobile column lifts with the company’s full-color, touch screen control technology, known as the ebright Smart Control System, to customers across North America.

First deployed on Stertil-Koni wireless mobile column lifts in 2015, the enhanced ebright Smart Control System provides intuitive, ease-of-use with maximum visual information about the lifting process — all at the fingertips of the busy technician on the shop floor.

“Stertil-Koni has brought the very best in digital control and operator information to fleet maintenance shops across North America with our distinctive, seven-inch, full-color touch screen console. It provides the intuitive features of a smartphone or a tablet directly to the operating panel of our vehicle lifts,” said Stertil-Koni President Jean DellAmore. “Now, Stertil-Koni is bringing this same technology to our more economically priced wired mobile column lifts, which also showcase the best in heavy duty hydraulic lifting, but use interconnecting communication wires rather than wireless connectivity.”

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

According to Stertil-Koni, the approach delivers:

  • Intuitive controls with actual data about the lift in action.
  • Tracking of specific operations and information codes.
  • Relevant information available at a glance.
  • Actual lifting height displayed.
  • Adjustable lowering speed via touch screen.
  • Visual display of maximum programmable lifting height.
  • Warning and maintenance service alerts.
