Today we are launching SWF X-Link, a new app that complements the NovaMaster hoist monitoring. The user interface has a modern design and can be operated intuitively. The presentation on the display of the mobile phone is clearly visualized. SWF X-Link is available for download at the AppStore or the Google Play Store as of now. We are entering the remote technology area with this first version of the app. Extensions of the app are planned.
SWF X-Link clearly visualizes all NovaMaster parameters on the user’s mobile phone on factory floor level. The parameters include e.g. warning and error messages, data on the condition of the hoist, such as the lifespan of the brakes and contactors, as well as usage data such as load capacity, runtime, overload incidents, temperature, excess temperature and number of emergency stops. Furthermore, all NovaMaster parameters can be exported in various formats and sent by email.
To work with the app, NovaMaster simply needs to be equipped with a hardware module with antenna for wireless transmission and an adapter cable. The user then simply uses his mobile phone on the factory floor level by connecting to NovaMaster via wireless communication technology.
Reading out and evaluating the parameters with SWF X-Link before the regular maintenance inspection support the service technicians prior to an onsite service. On the day of the hoist service, the NovaMaster data is simply read out, archived and can be any time compared with data from previous onsite services.
