EXPO chosen for launch of OptiConnect
An exciting new product unveiled at the EXPO, OptiConnect is the result of a collaboration between MechTronic and ALMA to design a new wireless remote control which supports and enables the complete management of the OptiMate delivery process.
This latest remote enables drivers to remain at the point of delivery and manage thedelivery process in its entirety without needing to return to the vehicle. It shows in real time the delivery flow, compartment, current quantity, and preset volumes. Drivers are also able to perform product/compartment line changes and adjust preset deliveries as required.
OptiConnect is a lightweight handheld remote that can be fastened on the arm of the driver if required and is ATEX approved. The remote is also fully rechargeable in the truck cab, with a dedicated socket.
