Crown Equipment Introduces InfoLink 7" Touch Display Module to Increase Operator Productivity and Safety
AUCKLAND, New Zealand, Nov. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/--

Crown Equipment Corporation, one of the world's largest material handling 
companies, today introduced a larger, more robust display module for its 
forklifts equipped with Crown's InfoLink(R) fleet and operator management 
system( The 
InfoLink 7" Touch Display Module enhances the operator experience with greater 
functionality and an interface designed to simplify onboarding, maximise 
productivity and reinforce safety.

The information presented on the adjustable colour LCD display creates a more 
informative and personalised experience for operators. For example, intuitive 
and easy-to-read menus and configurable widgets enable operators to customise 
their screen and receive context-sensitive alerts to increase engagement with 
the forklift. Three programmable-performance modes, as well as multiple 
language support, allow for equipment operation to be tailored to each user. 

"We believe deployment of any technology must immediately disprove the 
misperception that it is more complex than the prior solution. This is why our 
design thinking approach includes studying how operators interact with our 
forklifts to better understand work context, physiological needs and cognitive 
requirements," said Kim Stachler, marketing connected product manager, Crown 
Equipment Corporation. "Our new InfoLink 7" Touch Display Module is an example 
of how we apply learnings to facilitate enhanced engagement that leads to 
elevated productivity and safety levels throughout the entire operation. The 
module also provides a platform for introducing new InfoLink functionality and 
capabilities as operations change and evolve." 

An operator checklist with images at login helps ensure inspection compliance, 
while on-screen safety reminders and Dynamic Coachingä messaging during 
operation reinforce operator training and deliver real-time feedback to 
operators. Built-in wireless connectivity provides access to enterprise 
networks and allows sharing of real-time data for productivity tracking and 
preventive service, among many other uses. Wireless firmware downloads ensure 
new features can be leveraged for additional functionality and accommodate 
future application requirements as customer needs evolve.
