The Genie Tech Pro Link handheld diagnostics tool allows service technicians working on aerial work platforms or mobile elevated work platforms to monitor a machine's sensors, including engine temperature, oil pressure, fuel levels, and battery voltage. Technicians can also calibrate the machine, make speed adjustments during a pre-operation inspection, and receive fault code information with this compact device.
The device is designed to provide real-time information independently of a laptop, and makes this data readily available without searching through layers of menu structure. With a scan, the technician is given immediate access to maintenance, faults, settings, and sensors from the home screen. Future capability will allow technicians to download data to a laptop or desktop computer for additional analysis and tracking. It is currently compatible for use with the CAN-enabled control systems on mid-size Genie S telescopic Xtra Capacity (XC) booms.
The intuitive keyboard provides users a simple navigation to get to the information they want, and the consistent menu structure means users can access the data at any time. The large display screen offers in-depth information, graphics, and icons to describe what is going on, and allows users to easily view the machine's data. The ergonomic, angled design enables service technicians to comfortable hold it in one hand, even while wearing gloves.
Its design includes a 4-pin Deutsch connector for reliable integration with the platform and ground controls. It’s also equipped with standard mini-USB ports for charging in service vehicles or for downloading software updates and a built-in flashlight. A magnet on the back of the device enables service technicians to work hands-free while still accessing the needed data. And, it will soon be WiFi-enabled to work wirelessly around the machine.
