Richer Systems Group has launched enrich version 5.6.30 which includes customer Web access, a new Web-based customer management tool. It gives fleet management companies the tools to allow their customers secure, real-time access to important fleet information using nothing more than a Web browser. It takes fleet information already stored and validated within enrich and makes this data available in Web-based reports or for download into spreadsheets for further analysis. Users can control the type of information available to their customers and provide online functionality that maps specifically to a customer’s organization and end-users.

Pulltarps has introduced a new underbody pivot for electric arm tarping system applications. The Pulltarps design allows fine adjustment for perfect arm alignment. Spring tension can accommodate applications up to 40 feet in length. These features are built into a compact design that places the arms close in to the sides of the body and pivots under the body. It can be welded or bolted in place and has a two-piece arm design made of common galvanized fence pipe or optional aluminum tubing that can be easily and inexpensively replaced if the arms become damaged, it is claimed.

Anver Corporation has developed a line of professional-duty hand vacuum cups for safely handling contoured glass windshields and related products with delicate edges.

UltraTech International has recently released Ultra-Drainseals and DrainSeal wall mounts. The Ultra-Drainseals allow quick response to chemical and liquid spills and are molded with a reinforcing mesh between layers of polyurethane. They are designed using tear-resistant materials and the urethane construction allows the pad to deform and seal off most drains on contact. Drainseals are available in many shapes and sizes to fit any drain. The Drainseal wall mounts are lightweight products made from polypropylene. Caps on either side of the wall mount are kept secure with velcro fasteners and can be quickly removed when necessary. For more information, visit www.stormwater-products.com
Pulltarps introduces the Slope Detector IV, a next generation slope detector tip-over warning device for end dump trailers. With the level sensor mounted to the rear axle of the trailer and the controlled unit in the cab, operators are warned if there is an out of level condition and the hoist is automatically shut down to protect against tip-overs. The cab unit has an LED read out of the tilt angle and an audible warning sound to let the driver monitor the trailer while looking in the rear view mirrors or backing up. The system can be set to stop the hoist if the trailer tips more than the limit is set to. The operator cannot override the system once the fleet manager removes the key from the unit.
