A new driver sup­port sys­tem from Quicke utilises Blue­tooth con­nec­tiv­ity

Blue­tooth con­nec­tiv­ity will bring weigh­ing re­sults from trac­tors and front end load­ers di­rectly to the com­puter or tablet for users of the new Q-com­pan­ion, the driver sup­port sys­tem de­signed by Quicke.

Up­grades to the mon­i­tor­ing sys­tem to be in­tro­duced next year will al­low for smoother ex­port­ing of data as well as ac­cess to bet­ter colour ren­der­ing and more lan­guages, the com­pany says.

The up­grades will in­crease the num­ber of im­ple­ments that can be stored in the Q-com­pan­ion dis­play from 10 to 30, while also al­low­ing more user pro­files to be added, en­abling com­pa­nies to track who is do­ing what work with the same unit.

First de­signed in 2017, the Q-com­pan­ion makes it pos­si­ble to weigh a load dur­ing a lift and to au­to­mat­i­cally keep track of all the work done with the loader, in­clud­ing how many lifts were done, as well as set­ting a tar­get weight and mon­i­tor­ing when main­te­nance was needed.

Users can also now use a sound no­ti­fi­ca­tion op­tion, mak­ing the dis­play beep when a de­sired height or an­gle set point is reached.

This way, the user will hear when the bucket is level, or when the pal­let fork is on the same height as the shelf, with­out hav­ing to look at the dis­play.
