An App for Winching
ROAM™ by Superwinch, an interactive smartphone application, heralds a new era in winching. The system provides not only full control but puts crucial winch data at the user’s fingertips. Visitors to the Superwinch Booth (31017) will have the opportunity to connect their smartphone to a real live winch demo of ROAM.
For the project, Superwinch partnered with Lantronix, a leader in the smart networking and communications business. Bridging cutting edge winch technology with mobile computing allowed the companies to do a lot more than just control winch-in and winch-out. ROAM™ will push winching into the digital age.
“The Superwinch-Lantronix mobile application should prove to be one of the highlights of the show and one of the most forward-thinking solutions in the winch market,” said Zach Bohn, Vice President – Sales & Marketing for Superwinch. “Thanks to the power of xPico WiFi that powers ROAM™, our new application not only provides easier and more accurate winch control, but more importantly it will ultimately provide critical, real-time information on winch condition – from winch line speed, and motor temperature to total run time statistics and amperage draw – all of which enables the consumer to winch safer and also allows us to anticipate customer needs and winch downtime, andprovide valuable information back to our product development team for future solutions.”
As with all Superwinch products, safety is a standard feature. The ROAM™ system utilizes several redundant steps and is engineered to reliably and safely control winches. ROAM is a smart system that will enhance the safe operation of any Superwinch. Learn more at www.superwinchroam.com.
