GK_Portable_Stroke_MonitorSo you thought that General Kinematics only cooked-up enormously sized waste management equipment? Well, that’s a worthy assumption, but our mad scientist team also understands that tools of success span from the floor plan to the palm of your hand—and the electronic device that you pretty much always have in your pocket.

 

In today’s modern era, we wanted to develop an electronic tool that’s easy to use, and provides a live stream of on-the-floor data. Just for you. As a result, we created an app for mobile devices, called the GK Portable Stroke Monitor.

 

The app utilizes your hand-held device to monitor the vibratory equipment in your facility: It’s a transparent way to gauge foundry equipment efficacy, on the spot. Plus, it’s free to download.

What does the App do?

The Portable Stroke Monitor monitors the stroke and RPM of foundry equipment—any brand and any type—from up to 100 feet away. You also have the ability to email the results directly to the GK Service team (just in case there’s an issue), and receive a stream of news and social links.

How does the App work?

Simply attach a magnetic Wireless Bluetooth Accelerometer to the vibratory equipment, open the app in your phone, and voila. (Okay, technically, first you download the app! Which is free of cost.)

What mobile devices can I use the app with?

Currently, the app is compatible with Apple products and around the corner it will also be pairable with Android devices.

 

Specifically, the app functions with these Apple devices: iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPod Touch 5th Generation, iPad 3, iPad 4, and iPad Mini.

 

When it’s compatible with Android devices those will include the Samsung Galaxy S2, S3, S4, Note and Tab, HTC One, and the Google (LG) Nexus 4 or Newer.

 

*For both Apple and Android products the Bluetooth must be 4.0 Low-Energy.

Where can I find the app?

The app is currently available online, through Apple’s app store.

 

To snag all of the necessary portage (user manual, instructional videos, a wireless accelerometer, and links to the app purchase) check out our GK Portable Stroke Monitor page.

 

Happy gauging!
