Always On the Right Track
Konecranes RTG auto-steering Yard IT- positioning products and services improve worker safety and driver productivity. It keeps the RTG on a pre-programmed drive path, allowing the driver to focus on other tasks. Thanks to the precise auto-steering Yard IT- positioning products and services, container stack can be aligned with greater precision. This in turn permits greater stack density and helps to prevent collisions caused by loose, unpredicted stack configurations.
Yard IT ensures you accuracy
Konecranes offers the most accurate and reliable RTG auto-steering system -Yard IT- positioning products and services-available in the world today. The combination of our dual antenna technology and our proprietary RAAS technology minimizes signal loss and provides a positioning accuracy of ±2.5 cm.
