Keytroller's Overhead Crane Warning LED Spotlight
Wins Prestigious Award

Elgin Sweeper Changes Future of Street Sweeping
with New Twist on Single-Engine Technology

Keytroller, an I.D. Systems company and industry leader as a
designer, manufacturer, and supplier of electronic safety and
weighing devices, is honored to have won Material Handling Product
News' (MHPN) prestigious Products of the Year Reader's Choice
Award for the company's FOREWARNER-MAXI product. The FOREWARNER-MAXI is a state-of-the-art overhead crane warning LED
spotlight-developed to improve pedestrian awareness and operator
control of hook and load.
"We are so very honored to be recognized by Material Handling
Product News," said Terry Wickman, President of Keytroller. "The
FOREWARNER-MAXI provides an inexpensive, potentially life-saving solution, easily paying for itself with a single prevented accident."
Industrial plants have forklifts, heavy equipment, personal
carriers, and overhead cranes busily working with operators of these
machines concentrating mainly on the load being handled and their
job at hand. Operators are frequently multitasking and in a hurry
to complete their material handling task. Pedestrian workers are
also busy doing their job in the same proximity as these material
handling machines-major safety hazards in play.
Built with heavy duty die-cast aluminum to withstand the
toughest environments, the FOREWARNER-MAXI ensures pedestrian safety by projecting a solid white, blue, or red tightly focused
spotlight on the floor that alerts pedestrians to the hook's location.
In addition, the spotlight aids precise positioning for crane operators by providing a framing reference between the floor and hook.
A clip-on lens cover is available that transforms the spotlight into a
line-light on the floor below. Many crane operators prefer the linelight for additional load control.

Elgin Sweeper, a leading manufacturer of street sweepers, has
introduced an innovative single-engine configuration of its popular Crosswind® regenerative air sweeper used for cleaning large,
paved areas such as streets, parking lots, and airport runways. A
variable-speed device installed between the chassis engine and
transmission on the new configuration allows the engine to simultaneously power both the truck and the sweeper.
"Until now, single-engine air sweeper technology required a
cumbersome multi-step process to switch between road and work
modes," said Mike Higgins, vice president and general manager of
Elgin Sweeper. "With the single-engine Crosswind sweeper configuration, Elgin Sweeper is radically changing sweepers for good. More
municipalities and contractors are embracing the single-engine
Crosswind for their street sweeping needs."
The new Crosswind allows the operator to switch between modes
with a simple push of a button on the fly, without the need to stop.
According to Higgins, the new sweeper is very easy to operate, with
minimal training required compared to prior designs. Elgin Sweeper
invested significant dollars and several years of research developing
the new single-engine Crosswind before offering pre-production
models to customers for field tests. "Thousands of hours of realworld use provided valuable customer feedback that helped us
further refine the product and the technology before introducing
this breakthrough sweeper to the market," Schmidt said.

INDUSTRY NEWS
New Pedestrian Law in California
Starting January 1, 2018 in California, a "DON'T WALK" signal no
longer means "Don't step into the crosswalk" if a countdown timer
is displayed. Pedestrians will be able to enter an intersection while
an orange upraised hand ("DON'T WALK") signal is flashing with a
countdown timer. Up until now, police in Los Angeles, CA, USA had
been issuing tickets to pedestrians who step off the curb after the
countdown starts. The new text in the revised Vehicle Code Section
21456 reads:
28

Februar y 2018

ite jo u rn al

"(b) A flashing "DON'T WALK" or "WAIT" or approved "Upraised
Hand" symbol with a "countdown" signal indicating the time
remaining for a pedestrian to cross the roadway means a pedestrian
facing the signal may start to cross the roadway in the direction of
the signal but must complete the crossing prior to the display of the
steady "DON'T WALK" or "WAIT" or approved "Upraised Hand"
symbol when the "countdown" ends."
