Genie Introduces Telematics-Ready Connector

March 28, 2014

Genie is introducing a telematics-ready connector, allowing telematics devices to be plugged into the company's boom lifts. The telematics-ready connector is now available on the Genie STM-80 and ZTM-80 boom lifts, and will be available on the STM-100, STM-120 and ZXTM-135 models by the end of the first quarter. Genie will also introduce the connector on machines boom heights below 80 feet over the next year.

“Our customers have many brands of equipment to manage, and many proprietary types of telematics solutions to go along with them,” said Christine Zeznick, associate product manager, Terex Aerial Work Platforms. “The last thing many of our customers wanted was another OEM providing a proprietary solution for fleet management. Our solution provides a unique and open approach to help our customers better manage their diverse fleets without being forced into a particular telematics solution.”

The Genie telematics-ready connector allows for the ability to work with multiple telematics systems, empowering customers with the option to “plug and play” for flexibility, adaptability and portability.

The connector can provide machine hour meter reporting, location, machine utilization and security abilities such as geo-fencing, alarms by movement or input and remote machine disabling.

The telematics-ready connector is factory-installed and is available in all global markets.
