When two forklifts face off in a narrow aisle
www.demm.co.nz/ reader-enquiry #150912. SICK safety laser scanners combine know-how and experience with maximum performance. With the original PLS from SICK, safety laser scanners for stationary and mobile machine protection have enjoyed unimaginable success for over 20 years. With the new safety laser scanner S3000 Anti Collision, SICK makes use of its own scanning range record of seven metres for a field where safety is key but it doesn’t stop there – it is actually capable of covering a much greater scanning range of up to 15 metres.
S3000 Anti Collision: Operate more than one vehicle in a narrow aisle for the very first time
A protective field is used to safely detect oncoming forklifts in narrowaisle applications and reduce their speed before a collision occurs. The S3000 Anti Collision can be relied upon to detect a reference target on the oncoming vehicle at a distance of up to 15 metres away. This means that – for the very first time – it is possible to operate two forklifts at high speed in a single aisle, offering maximum results with a high level of system throughput. Dynamic field switching is a further function that facilitates a high degree of throughput. At the same time, the S3000 Anti Collision monitors a protective field of up seven metres to detect human presence.
