GM Engineering Services is proud to announce a new wireless repeater to increase safety on heavy equipment where mounting antennas or line-of-sight is not available. The repeater is designed to work with GM Engineering Services’ rapidly deployable wireless camera systems such as the HoistCam™ (http://www.hoistcam.com) for cranes and TugCam ™ (http://www.tugcam.com) for towboats.
GM Engineering Services has released a video about the new optional remote web access feature of the HoistCam™. Beside giving direct line-of-sight to the crane operation, the HoistCam remote web access feature allow managers and site supervisors to view the site from the HoistCam’s point of view from anywhere in the world. All of these capabilities are included in just one system. Manage your projects better with visual information in seconds from any mobile device from a close-up HoistCam perspective. Using any PC, Apple, Android or Blackberry smartphone or tablet, managers and supervisors can get valuable site information in a matter of seconds from a HoistCam’s perspective.
HoistCam was featured as a special report in May/June 2013 edition of Overhead Crane & Hoist magazine as the publications “Game Changer.” The article features statistics from OSHA regulators, commentary from GMES and, more importantly, feedback from HoistCam’s customers. The pictures from the article depict the HoistCam installed as a camera on a tower crane at a construction site. A downloadable version of the article is also available in PDF format.
