Link-Belt Pulse 2.0 Crane Software

Dec. 7, 2016

Link-Belt Pulse 2.0 is the next generation of Link-Belt Construction Equipment’s patented crane operating system. It provides a simple interface for crane operators with a larger display, along with programmable features that allow each operator to customize their display.

The new 10-inch display is 47 percent larger than the original Pulse screen. A resistive touch screen can be used with gloves and be seen in direct sunlight with larger, clearer images; and the unit is pivot-mounted for optimal viewing. The interface is more dynamic throughout the operating system, with larger buttons and interactive indicator lights displayed on the margins.

Operator startup is quick and easy with faster hardware/software response as well as fewer required operator inputs. Electronic level/list display as well as ground bearing calculator are integrated depending on model. One specific feature added based on operator input is the ability to shut off the engine and still maintain the live display data for an extended period of time.    

Pulse 2.0 has the ability to service and update a crane’s software remotely. The system includes a Wi-Fi hub and uses the serial number of the unit to determine whether any updates are available, and downloads/installs to the appropriate controller. Software maintenance can be accomplished in the field without a service call or bringing the crane in for service.
