Keytroller, LLC announces that its new generation LCD601 access monitoring system for forklifts and equipment is a finalist for the Plant Engineering Magazine — Product of the Year in the Material Handling category.
The device is a popular addition to mobile equipment, as it limits access to only trained and authorized operators with a valid RFID card. It makes abusive operators accountable for damaging impacts and speeding, automates the OSHA required daily checklist, warns operator and management when training and maintenance is due and transmits all usage event data wirelessly to the client's server. KEYPATROLLER software can generate automatic emails and produce reports and graphs on usage events and trends. The color LCD display is housed in a rugged custom enclosure that is suitable for tough outdoor and freezer weather extremes. Users have the flexibility to install a KEYTROLLER to any make or model vehicle, including; electric, gas, LPG or diesel models.
This is the 24th year Plant Engineering has offered the Product of the Year contest for the best new products that improve productivity and safety in manufacturing operations. Each subscriber receives an electronic ballot via email with all of the year's new product finalists. The voter chooses which new product he/she thinks will most help their operation and the ballot is submitted for tabulation. Plant Engineering will announce the winners of the Gold, Silver and Bronze awards in the April 2012 addition of the magazine available in both print and on line additions.
Keytroller has previously won Gold first place Product of the Year awards in both 1999 and 2001 for its first generation KEYTROLLER 104 keypad ignition system and its SPEEDTROLLER speedometer warning and alarm system for equipment.
