Overhead Lifting Information (OLI)
See your hoist’s real-time usage and condition reports with OLI, the app that allows you to easily read HoistMonitor data from the floor. OLI is there to keep your operations running smoothly by predicting when key maintenance will be needed and alerting you of possible risks and training needs.View Interactive Brouchure Hoosier Crane Pilot Review
How OLI Works
The OLI app works together with the HoistMonitor device to bring you real-time information about how your equipment is performing. The electronic key plugs in to the port on the face of the HoistMonitor device and wirelessly transmits the data to your mobile phone or tablet through the OLI app. Once the electronic key is installed, it will remain in the hoist electrical panel to allow for easy access to the data at any time, without having to get onto the crane. The included antenna ensures optimal range for the device, even in industrial environments. The OLI app is compatible with both iOS and Android operating systems.View Interactive Brouchure
What Oli Can Show You
A fault means that the HoistMonitor has detected a situation that prevents the hoist from running in order to maintain the safety of the equipment and its operators. Some examples: overloads, hoist brake not opening, hoist motor overheating, electrical faults.
This includes the amount of weight the hoist is picking up, the average weight the hoist has seen over its lifetime, and the maximum weight the hoist has recorded. It will also show the overloads or number of attempts to lift an object the weighed more than the rated capacity of the hoist.
Starts, Stops and Runtime
Indicators the run time value, number of starts and stops, emergency stops, and duty cycle calculation. This can help you understand how your equipment is being used.
Sudden Loading Supervision
The Hoist Monitor is programmed to force lifting into slow speed if it detects a sudden load condition. Sudden load condition can occur if the bottom block or load songs or catch on a fixed object during lifting, cause a potentially unsafe situation. This could cause an overload and trigger a fault.
Designed Working Period
OLI uses real data gathered by the HoistMonitor to display an easy-to-understand calculation of the remaining Designed Working Period (DWP). DWP indicates the period in which the equipment can be safely operated, provided the equipment has been used and maintained in line with the original expectations.
A service warning means that at least one calculated condition monitoring value has exceeded the corresponding design value. Service warnings do not prevent operation of the equipment but do help to predict potentially needed maintenance. Service warnings can help predict when wearable items like brakes and contactors need replaced.
