Lift Systems presents its next generation CARL Control System, which incorporates touch screen technology with an icon-based interface much like smart phones.

Lift Systems will present its 34PT5400WSIC, a 500 US ton capacity Power Tower hydraulic telescopic lifting system with the next generation CARL control, which has a touch screen with an icon based interface, much like smart phones, which most operators are already familiar using. The large 7-inch (178 mm) display screen shows all relevant lift information, such as lift height, travel distance, load weight, and wedge status, to operator at all times with simple navigation to optional setup and diagnostic features.

Lift Systems is currently the only manufacturer of gantry products to offer a multi-language control system to allow the operator to use the machine in their own native language, the manufacturer said. The unit also has Lift Systems’ exclusive dual-power option which allows for operation of the machine on diesel or electric power on the same HPU with no additional configuration or setup.
