Proximity Alert System
The proximity alert system comprises personal alarm devices (PADs) and the collision avoidance module (CAM).
Using a low-frequency magnetic field, the pedestrian detection system establishes a detection zone around the mobile equipment. The proximity detection system improves safety in industrial environments where mobile equipment like forklifts is used.
Enhance Safety in Industrial Environments
Equipped with proximity sensors, the mobile equipment triggers alarms when it detects pedestrians within the designated detection zone. Proximity detection systems prevent accidents and safeguard the well-being of workers in industrial workplaces.
The proximity alert system ensures accuracy and precision, minimising the occurrence of false alarms. The forklift safety equipment can be customised to meet the specific requirements of different industries and is compatible with various types of mobile equipment, including forklifts, reach trucks, and other industrial vehicles.
Easy Installation and Minimal Maintenance
The forklift safety system allows multiple pedestrians and machines to operate within the same area without compromising safety, thereby boosting productivity.
The proximity alert system is easy to install and requires minimal maintenance, making it a cost-effective solution for businesses aiming to improve operational efficiency while upholding high safety standards. Proximity alert systems can be used in manufacturing facilities, warehouses, ports, and docks.
- Pulsed magnetic fields can travel through walls, racks, and other obstructions
- Multipath or reflections common with radio signals are avoided
- 360-degree protection zone created for pedestrians, mobile equipment, and structures
- Clear, simultaneous audible and visual warnings for both operators and pedestrians
- 2 distinct detection zones: Warning and Danger
- Detection ranges can easily be adjusted using a handheld device
Personal Alarm Device (PAD)
Personal Alarm Devices detect pedestrians and prevent collisions at the workplace. Pedestrians wear the PAD system with sensors that detect the magnetic field mounted on the vehicle-mounted generator. Once detected, the sensor will activate, warning pedestrians and vehicle operators about the danger.
The PAD offers two types of alarms. The first occurs when the pedestrian enters the forklift’s Warning Zone (Yellow), and the second occurs when the pedestrian enters the forklift’s Danger Zone (Red). When a pedestrian enters the warning zone, the sounder emits three beeps, and the LED light up. If the pedestrian enters the danger zone, the sounder will continuously beep, and the LED will light up.
XL Personal Alarm Device (XL PAD)
Extra Loud Personal Alarm Device (XL PAD) is used for applications in loud noise environments. It registers at a maximum of 100dB when placed within 4 inches of a person’s ear and comes with a clip-on LED light on the shirt or vest. Like the Personal Alarm Device (PAD), the XL PAD is worn by pedestrians. It has to sense elements that detect magnetic fields and alert pedestrians and vehicle operators.
The magnetic field is divided into warning (yellow) and danger (red) zones. When a pedestrian is detected in the warning zone, the sounder will emit three beeps and an LED light. If the pedestrian is in the danger zone, the sounder will emit a continuous beep and an LED light.
Collision Avoidance Module (CAM)
Collision Avoidance Module (CAM) is a component of the Magnetic Field Generator or the XL Magnetic Field Generator. It functions like a Personal Alarm Device by sensing the magnetic fields from a generator and determining the proximity of another truck. It sends an alarm when two trucks approach each other and help prevent the vehicles from colliding.
