Handy Unit Conversion for Drive Technologies comes to mobile devices

Do you need a handy pocket unit converter to convert all the different types of units associated with your operation and selection Power Transmission equipment?

Strict regulations in place worldwide ensure safe practices during the maintenance of heavy machinery, regular inspections and preventative maintenance ensure safety at the worksite, minimising accidents and potential injury.

In the old, low-tech days we used to look such information up on cardboard ready reckoners you could keep in your wallet.

Apart from being time consuming, looking up information in a paper form is tedious and error-prone and confusing, especially when work is being conducted on new sites or inhospitable environments such as remote mine sites.

Fortunately information technology solutions are moving along with the times, we can keep references like these in apps on a single smartphone, which is easy to keep in your pocket while busy working on the job.

Employees at many companies are allowed to bring and use their own devices at the workplace.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies can be very effective when it comes to ensuring good communications and internet connectivity are required.

However, when it comes to converting units such as fluid volume, mass, length, linear velocity, pressure and stress, moment of inertia, torque, force, or temperature, then technicians should look no further than the new Sumitomo Drive Technologies mobile application, called PT Units.

This free app is available on the Apple App Store or on Google Play, and provides users with a quick and easy way to make the unit conversions you need on the job, error and hassle free.

PT Units not only allows technicians to make quick and easy unit conversions, but they can also copy the results of their unit conversions to a clipboard for later use in other programs.

This handy new app can also set default input and output units, and restore factory default settings.

The conversion app also provides a direct contact with Sumitomo sales representatives, employing a built-in GPS location feature to locate your nearest dealer, and providing you with easy to use contacts via phone call or email.

For non-phone devices utilizing both Android and iOS operating systems such as a ruggedized touchpad system, you can easily contact our Customer Service department via email.
