Integrated dock equipment controls
The new Kelley Digital Master Control Panel from Kelley Entrematic, Carrollton, Texas, is said to be the next generation of integrated dock equipment controls.
Kelley Digital Master Control Panels streamline dock operations by combining operations across multiple pieces of dock equipment while providing increased overall control, insight and decision-making intelligence.
In contrast, the Kelley Digital Master Control Panel features a guided sequence of operations, an intuitive graphic interface, color and shape status light, zero dependence on language, on-board data and diagnostics, password access and override, time-at-dock timer and is network integration ready.
Central to the Kelley Master Control Panel is its HMI screen, which provides an intuitive-guided sequence of operations that can be customized to operate multiple combinations of dock equipment, including levelers, doors and restraints. Large intuitive buttons can even be operated while wearing heavy gloves. The Digital Master Control Panel is available as a retrofit or new installation.
In addition, the Digital Control Panel’s ultra-bright composite LED communication light utilizes shapes and flashes to indicate the presence of a trailer at the dock, status of the restraint and other operations.
