Improve site safety by making forklift operators aware of nearby hazards

Forklift trucks are instrumental in everyday warehouse operations and play a vital role in ensuring efficiency and productivity levels are maintained. However, with all forklift truck operations, there is always a risk of collision with pedestrians working in close proximity, as well as stock and building infrastructure.

To avoid such risk of collisions, we offer both an Active RFID Proximity Alert system and an Ultra-Wide Band solution, able to detect personnel and objects within a pre-determined safety zone around vehicles, machines and hazardous areas.

How it works

The Base Station generates a detection zone or bubble around the vehicle, the size of which can be adjusted to meet site requirements. The design allows for easy mounting and magnetic brackets are also available. The single antenna option is suitable for most machines and the base station has a robust field-proven design.

The Operator Display Unit (ODU) performs a range of functions including alerting the machine operator to zone breaches and controlling authorised approaches. Different ODU options are available dependent upon vehicle type.

Personal Transponder – Tags: Transponders are designed to be an integral part of personnel’s PPE. The transponders are available in a range of options including a helmet mounted vibrating version. They have a maintenance free, tamper proof design with no need to recharge or replace batteries in the unit.

External Alarm/Beacon Combo: The alarm and beacon combo alerts any tag wearing personnel breaching a safety zone that they have done so, allowing them to move to a safer location. It also alerts others to the fact there has been an exclusion zone breach. This has a choice of alarm tones and volumes to suit all applications.

Key Features
