Advanced Safety Electronics

ASE Phase 4

Summit’s innovative Advanced Safety Electronics (ASE) Phase 4 control system has elevated jobsite safety and performance.

We’ve combined crane, body, and chassis operations with functional safety using a network of switches and sensors to communicate data.

Advanced Safety Electronics reduces the risks of working in hazardous conditions, takes the guesswork out of crane operation with automated protection features, and gives you information to make safe decisions. Based on the robust J1939 Protocol, we can incorporate the telematics data into your fleet management solution.


Our industry-leading control system provides more functionality and information to elevate job site safety and performance.

We have incorporated crane capacity and zone charts in the system to help minimize the risks field service mechanics often face. Built-in protection features prevent crane operation in unsafe conditions and movement of the crane that exceeds load limits.

Our simple-to-use system has three convenient user interfaces to make your job easier and more efficient. The main panel and the crane remote are in the rear compartment, and a six-button panel is in the cab. You get a higher level of performance and control when and where you need it.

Cab Control Panel

A small push-button panel in the cab controls the PTO and lights. You’ll also get audible and visual alert notifications. For instance, if you forget to stow your crane remote and try to leave the jobsite, the panel will signal you with repeated beeps and flashes. Go back to the main panel to resolve the issue.
