G Force Plus RF

Your company has made a considerable investment in its fleet of lift trucks, and strives to maintain safe operation and timely maintenance of its assets.

GFORCE PLUS RF is the newest addition to the line of GFORCE products for powered industrial vehicles. Still designed to create a safer workplace and to reduce costs associated with unsafe vehicle operation, but now with more cost-saving features, greater end-user flexibility, and the convenience of RF communications.

RF: Radio Frequency or Really Fast?

The speed and convenience of radio frequency communication allows you more time to manage your operation. Data received via RF communications updates the software Fleet Status screen to display the important details you need.

Outfit your fleet with RF Vehicle Monitors and install at least one RF Transceiver (Host Transceiver) and you are on your way to a more hands-off approach to management while improving the efficiency and precision of your data collection. Add more RF Transceivers (Zone Transceiver) for greater facility coverage and efficiency.

Electronic Vehicle Inspection Checklist

The GFORCE PLUS RF system features a Vehicle Interface that allows for an electronic vehicle inspection checklist to be displayed.

To display the next item on the list, an Operator must press the Pass/Yes button to pass the item shown.

If an Operator fails an item by pressing the Fail/No button, the failure must be confirmed (VEH INSPECTION FAILURE? YES/NO). A failed vehicle inspection results in the Vehicle entering Maintenance Lockout mode. The Vehicle will then exhibit the programmed behavior for that mode (i.e. lift interrupt, etc).

Vehicle inspection checklists are created for Vehicle groups (i.e. reach truck, pallet jack, etc), and are built for each group by selecting from a list of 32 fixed items in the Fleet Manager software, followed by up to 8 more items that are fully customizable to display on the Vehicle Interface's 2 x 16 character LCD.

The resulting report for each vehicle inspection is easily retrieved from the Fleet Manager software.
