PRODUCT SHOWCASE Civil 1. Service Control Dexter + Chaney’s Spectrum Equipment Service System electronically collects assetmanagement data for a construction company’s heavy equipment, including equipment hours, fuel usage and maintenance. The system alerts fuel truck drivers when preventive-maintenance tasks are due and records the maintenance activity once it is performed. Operating hours and idle hours are recorded by the equipment monitor attached to the machine, which is relayed to the field master mounted in the fuel truck or service vehicle. The field master collects data from each piece of heavy equipment a via wireless RF signal. The fuel controller captures gallons of fuel dispensed to each piece of equipment, which enables the company to track usage and reduce fuel theft. To learn more, visit www.dexterchaney.com. Software and New Technology 2. Start Your Engines The Start-Smart keyless ignition system from Keytroller replaces ignition keys with what the company calls a “virtually indestructible” metal, pressure-sensitive keypad. Operators of vehicles and machinery enter the proper code and if it is accepted, the panel flashes green. The operator presses the start button to go and stop to shut down the engine. The system is available in an anti-theft version, which incorporates a wireless relay in the ignition, starter or fuel pump. It installs to either diesel, unleaded, liquefied petroleum or electric vehicles. To learn more, visit www.keytroller.com. 1. In This Section 2. 3. Wood Design Software Powered by the STRAD finite element engine, Timber Design can analyze any beam or column, regardless of support and loading conditions, making it the most powerful design software available, Digital Canal claims. The software can analyze and design beams on grade, but was created to be easy to use with four dialog boxes. Timber Design allows users to design multi-span beams or columns for bi-axial bending, axial loads, axial-bending interaction, torsion, shear, support bearing and deflections. Automatic load calculations are provided for wind and snow loads on gabled roofs, and it also determines moving concentrated floor, garage and roof live loads.
