How Logic Controls Revolutionize the Job Site



Construction demands that you be on your A-game, physically and mentally. The last thing a foreman or contractor needs is additional difficulties, when they already have to face tough profit margins, a tight labor market and declining worker retention. Overcoming these woes means dedication and efficiency, and new programmable logic controls (PLC) systems can be a boost to efficiency when it comes to handling an important piece of equipment, the crane.

Cranes are workhorses, but they can also be dangerous to their operators and other people on the job site. PLC systems address these issues head-on, by requiring fewer people to move a greater amount of material and creating a better vantage point for operators when equipped with radio-remote controls. When a good portion of time on construction sites is spent waiting for materials, speeding up handling while limiting injury potential is a huge plus.

Injuries are costly, and material handling makes up most injuries on any given site. When you have an intuitive piece of technology providing warnings, you can identify issues before they happen and diligently work to prevent them. One PLC system, Venturo Logic Controls™ (VLC), incorporates vehicle grade stability readings, overload warnings and alert lights that provide operators a chance to step in and prevent accidents.

Some advances in job site technology can add frustration and a learning curve. In such a case, what is meant to make processes easier may accomplish the opposite. This is not true of PLC, or more specifically VLC. The VLC’s pistol-grip controller includes easy-to-read alerts and comfortable control through a simple interface.

Efficiency, worker satisfaction and safety are all paramount in construction. At least in terms of crane operation, we are developing a better way forward.
