Forklift Information System

INVEST IN SAFETY, IT’S A SAFE INVESTMENT

OE Attachment’s Forklift Information System (FLIS) is a safety solution engineered to prevent forklift-related accidents, injuries, and property damage by providing real-time monitoring and safety alerts well before accidents occur. Using a patented system of sensors and cameras that are installed onto the forklift, all data is transmitted back to the driver via a touchscreen monitor mounted in the forklift cab or can be integrated using an existing video panel. The screen will instantly alert the driver if a safety hazard is imminent, allowing them ample time to take corrective action.

FORKLIFT INFORMATION SYSTEM OPERATOR FEATURES INCLUDE:

  • Dynamically calculates and displays residual load capacity while stationary or in motion (patented technology).
  • Real-time status of the available speed, load and residual capacity of the vehicle.
  • Monitors, senses, and responds to external dynamic factors including acceleration, speed, ground slope, load center, mast position, and other conditions.
  • Enhanced visibility. Forklift camera can provide additional sightlines.
  • Video output provides vehicle status information to the operator.

The Forklift Information System (FLIS) is compatible with most makes and models of forklift truck and includes all the following features as part of its standard offering. For questions about any of these features, pricing, and the installation process, feel free to contact us via the phone number or email address below.

 

FeatureDescription
Hardware ModularitySystem is built to be scalable from base unit to full residual capacity and anywhere in between. Modular design allows to additional features to be added after initial base unit purchase. Interface this unit with your other systems by contacting OEA for a custom integration solution for your business.
Access Control PINBasic PIN Entry for operator access included.
Operator CertificationsRestricts display and checklist access to only certified operators.
OSHA Checklists (customizable)Stored electronically locally and with cloud storage; retrievable by manager
Maintenance and Customizable User ChecklistsCreate your own time-based or date-specific checklists your operator is responsible for. Example: overhead crane, sling chains, routine tasks, personal reminders, etc.
Screen Snapshot Video and Data w/ on-screen buttonTakes screenshot of the video and data on your display with the touch of a button. Data is stored locally and on the cloud.
Android/Linux PlatformRun any approved Android app such as WMS, LMS, ERP, and standard apps for training and informational purposes. Files and work instructions can be pulled up on the screen.
Impact Detection with Driver Recorder (video and data)All incidents trigger a 30-second video and data capture (15 seconds prior; 15 after the incident). Stored locally and sent to the cloud.
Visual Warning on Display Base unit includes visual on-screen alerts with flashing warning alerts. Option: Buzzer with light in Accessories

The Forklift Information System (FLIS) is able to provide information, alerts, and warnings regarding speed. Speed features can be added to the FLIS at an additional cost. Since the FLIS is a fully modular system, additional features can be added at a later date if you choose not to get them initially. For questions about speed features, pricing, and the installation process, feel free to contact us via the phone number or email address below.

 

Feature Description
Speed Sensor Tire MountFits on any system with rotating tires
Speed - CAN Bus InterfaceDesigned for newer fork trucks; contact OEA for custom pricing
Speed WarningAlerts on-screen
Speed Warning with Elevated MastAlerts on-screen; height sensor required

The Forklift Information System (FLIS) is able to provide information, alerts, and warning regarding the height of the load and mast of the forklift. Height features can be added to the FLIS at an additional cost. Since the FLIS is a fully modular system, additional features can be added at a later date if you choose not to get them initially. For questions about height features, pricing, and the installation process, feel free to contact us via the phone number or email address below.

 

FeatureDescription
Height - Lift Height Sensing Measures lift height; used in performance KPI's to track lift time duration
Height - Lift Height Level WarningOn-screen warning when maximum programmed lift height has been exceeded; with load indicator
Height - Mast Height Warning On-screen warning when mast is too high; with speed sensor

The Forklift Information System (FLIS) is able to provide information, alerts, and warning regarding the weight of the load being handled by the forklift. Load features can be added to the FLIS at an additional cost. Since the FLIS is a fully modular system, additional features can be added at a later date if you choose not to get them initially. For questions about load features, pricing, and the installation process, feel free to contact us via the phone number or email address below.

 

FeatureDescription
Load Indicator - WeightOn-screen display of approximate load weight (accuracy within 1-2% of forklift max capacity)
Advanced Load Indicator - Weight On-screen display of approximate load weight (accuracy within 0.5 - 1% of forklift max capacity)
Load - Load/Pallet Detection Detects when a load or pallet is on the truck and can be used for performance KPI
Load - Lifting MetricsPerformance KPIs; counts number of lifts with load
Load - Rack Height WarningOn-screen display of warning when overloading on specific heights of vertical racks; OSHA requires racks to have a maximum load rating per beam posted and compliance
