STEVENSVILLE, Md. — Heavy-duty vehicle lift supplier Stertil-Koni has incorporated a touch-screen control console into its in-ground telescopic piston lifting system, the Diamondlift.

The ebright Smart Control System was first deployed on Stertil-Koni’s wireless mobile column lifts in 2015. The console has been integrated into the company’s battery-operated cable mobile column lifts as well as the in-ground scissor-lifting system, the Ecolift.

According to Stertil-Koni, the addition of the ebright Smart Control System in the above-ground console makes the ongoing operation and monitoring of Diamondlift easier, placing all critical information at the fingertips of the technician.

“Stertil-Koni has brought the very best in engineering, digital control, and continuous operator feedback to heavy-duty vehicle maintenance shops across North America with our distinctive, 7-inch, full-color touch-screen control system,” said Dr. Jean DellAmore, president of the company. “Now, we are extremely pleased to bring the ebright Smart Control System to the DIAMONDLIFT — delivering intuitive ease-of-use in an extremely familiar, operator-friendly format that resembles today’s most popular tablet devices.”

Matthias Lennemann, sales manager for heavy-duty in-ground lifts at Stertil-Koni, added that the system enables technicians and managers to see in real time how lifts are being used, observe warning and service alerts, and monitor a lift’s motor run timer.

“It’s a great way to more efficiently track the equipment, schedule upkeep, and use maintenance dollars more effectively,” Lennemann said.

Stertil-Koni has engineered several additional advances into the Diamondlift. Those include an optional continuous recess system that allows the bolster to recess flush to the floor anywhere in the horizontal range of piston travel.

The Diamondlift, designed to accommodate vehicles with extremely low ground clearances, has a lifting capacity of up to 35,000 pounds per piston, or a total of 105,000 pounds in the three-piston configuration. It is available in two versions: cassette and frame.
