Troubleshoot JLG Equipment Remotely with the Mobile Analyzer
| March 03, 2014 |
The JLG Mobile Analyzer is a first of its kind in the industry. The tool combines a free mobile application and a wireless access module to provide technicians with remote access to program, troubleshoot, calibrate, or customize JLG equipment performance.
“The JLG Mobile Analyzer is a Wi-Fi-enabled evolution of the JLG Analyzer Kit, allowing technicians to do the same analysis they are currently doing with the handheld kit. However, this new tool for Apple® or Google® operating system devices, allows for an extended operating range of up to 150 feet,” explained Chris Mellott, JLG vice president, customer support and aftermarket development. “Continuing to introduce new technologies that help our customers do their jobs more efficiently is a key priority at JLG. We believe this app provides the flexibility our customers need.”
The JLG Mobile Analyzer communicates is available in thirteen languages.
Users can download the app at no charge on mobile devices compatible with Apple® iOS 5.0 and up, as well as Android® API 8 and up, through Apple iTunes® and Google Play™ stores. Regular software updates ensure compatibility to mobile devices. The app works with the JLG Mobile Wireless Access Module, which can be ordered through JLG’s Online Express or a JLG representative.
The access module plugs into a port on JLG products that are currently compatible with the JLG Analyzer Kit, as well as all new JLG products with Advance Design Electronics (ADE), and uses the app to transmit equipment performance data to a mobile device. Although the module is interchangeable among machines, it can only be connected to one mobile device at a time. To enhance functionality, technicians can make phone calls while using the JLG Mobile Analyzer, enabling them to talk with factory support representatives as they work on machines. And because technicians are not limited by connections to equipment by cables attached to handheld devices, they have greater mobility around equipment and can seek shelter in trucks or other protective cover during inclement weather, while continuing to receive and analyze data.
