Introducing the Configurable Sidewinder® EXM

Elkhart Brass Manufacturing Company, Inc. presents the revolutionary Sidewinder EXM at this year's FDIC in Indianapolis, April 24th - 26th. The Sidewinder EXM is the first fully configurable and programmable monitor. Demonstrations of the new concept in 500+ GPM monitors can be seen at the Elkhart Brass booth (#9268).

The Sidewinder EXM allows the Elkhart Brass customer to configure and program the right monitor for every need. Travel speeds, travel limits, and stow position are fully programmable. The monitor may be configured for hard-wired controls, wireless controls or both. All configurations and programming can be done on any Windows-based PC or laptop and then transferred to the Sidewinder EXM from a USB memory stick.

Besides being both configurable and programmable, the Sidewinder EXM also raises the bar in durability. The entire Sidewinder EXM is sealed to NEMA 6, which allows for full submersion of the monitor and components, including: the motors, sensors, harnesses and control enclosures. The Sidewinder EXM has larger motors; stronger, more efficient, planetary gear reducers; and upgraded swivel joints with true thrust bearings.

"By reviewing available technology and thinking about how it could be utilized for our customers, our design team was able to re-imagine how a small monitor might work," notes Hans Ashbaugh, President and CEO of Elkhart Brass. "We believe the new Elkhart Sidewinder EXM provides a single-stop, solution-oriented, customizable monitor for our customers."
