Fassi SmartApp, Be smart!Now your crane interacts at a touch. Fassi is the first company in the lifting sector to combine the intelligent use of boom cranes with latest-generation smartphones
One of the main innovation guidelines followed by the Italian company based in Albino includes the development of advanced man-machine interaction systems, known as Human Machine Interface (HMI).
Its importance lies in the fact that, nowadays, the systems available onboard the cranes, often connected to radio controls, contain plenty of information, some of it requiring great attention by the operator when it comes to fast and accurate machine operation.
Even more so, in the near future we will be witnessing a further increase in the number of available functions tied to new systems, for which acceptance by the operator will depend mostly on the operator’s “familiarity” with the feedback received.
Another important aspect is the tendency of more and more information that needs to be given to the operators so that they can have proper control over the machine. These considerations have led to the development of Fassi Human Machine Interface, aimed at making cranes as “easy to use” and “safe to use” as possible, maximizing system efficiency for quick information reading and interpretation, also in view of future growth in managing the set of available systems.
This principle represents the origin of “Fassi SmartApp”, a revolutionary system patented at the international level thanks to which a crane can “communicate” with a latest-generation smartphone.
The most interesting characteristics of the “Fassi SmartApp” include the possibility to use remote assistance through Black Box diagnostics.
As a whole, it is much more than a simple “APP” for smartphones, since it can also be used for the following operations: setting the parameters of the radio control levers, quickly analyzing and evaluating the crane utilization statistics, consulting the Fassi Geo Locator in order to contact the Fassi assistance centres quickly and dialogue with the crane, using the quicker and more spectacular graph display to read data instead of the traditional radio control.
