Trimble Announces End of Service for ICS5000 Positioning System


Kundeninformation GF - Trimble beendet Service für ICS5000

Dear valued customers,

In February 2015, Trimble informed PSI Technics they will no longer provide service and support for its discontinued ICS5000 positioning systems. This means that anyone still using the ICS5000 or its predecessors for positioning control of stacker cranes, bridge cranes, transfer cars and other rail-guided vehicles is at substantial risk since there are no spare parts available worldwide.

PSI Technics is your competent partner and I would like to assure you that PSI Technics will continue to leverage our global success in upgrading customers from the Trimble positioning products to our ARATEC positioning solution. We have upgraded over 400 customer applications worldwide in 11 countries and our customers are very happy with their results. Our success in crane positioning will provide you with the support and confidence you seek whether you are upgrading from these obsolete Trimble products or need to modernize your existing crane systems for enhanced throughput, reduced system wear and lower energy consumption.

Learn why the likes of Volkswagen, Daimler, Bosch, SKF, AK Steel and others rely on PSI Technics.

Please take a look at our customer application reports and customer testimonials…or simply ask to talk to one of our satisfied customers...

Give us a call to learn why PSI Technics’ intelligent ARATEC Positioning Solution System is the leading replacement for the Trimble products and leading PLC- and drive-based positioning approaches within manufacturing, distribution or warehouse applications.

FLP6000AOC – Advanced Oscillation Control

The ARATEC's FLP6000AOC software reduces mast oscillations – even of highly dynamic stacker cranes – to a minimum. The test setup shows that the ARATEC Positioning Solution System with enabled FLP6000AOC compensates for mast oscillations in near-real time, even when the oscillations are caused by external disturbances.
