New crane operating system coming to Las Vegas event

February 27, 2017  By Keith Norbury

The latest version of Link-Belt Construction Equipment’s patented crane operating system will be showcased on new crane models at ConExpo-Con/Agg in Las Vegas this March

Link-Belt Pulse 2.0 “provides a simple interface for crane operators with a larger display, along with programmable features that allow each operator to customize their display; and software can be updated remotely,” the release said.

The new system has a 10-inch display, which is 47 per cent bigger than the original Pulse’s screen.

“It has been carefully selected to deliver a high resolution screen tough enough for harsh operating environments,” the release said. “A resistive touch screen can be used with gloves and be seen in direct sunlight with larger, clearer images; and the unit is pivot-mounted for optimal viewing. The interface is more dynamic throughout the operating system, with larger buttons and interactive indicator lights displayed on the margins.”

The 2.0 version can also service and update the software remotely. It includes a wi-fi hub that uses the machine’s serial number to detect any updates. And it downloads and installs the software to the appropriate controller.


Headquartered in Lexington, Ky., Link-Belt will occupy booth G3864 in the Gold Lot at ConExpo.
