Description: Crane Sentry is used for crane to crane and crane to wall collision monitoring, in addition to zone control. In this application, the end user need a system to keep operators from bringing canes on the same runway too close together.
Description: A special model of our Crane Sentry has been installed to maintain safe distance between groups of cranes on parallel bays with shared columns. Both the position of the bridge and load on the crane are taken into consideration.
Description: Crane Sentry can be use used to control the position of a hoist on an overhead crane in a metal stamping facility to keep operators from lifting dies and coils in an unsafe manner over areas where personnel or machinery co-exist.
Description: Usage of hoists for lifting loads in industrial applications has inherent risk, requiring the need for safety precautions. A two axis MEMS based tilt sensor is mounted on a bracket clamped to the dead end of the wire rope on the hoist near the frame to detect side pulling. Properly equipping a hoist with a DIS tilt sensor adds a layer of accident prevention.
Crane Sentry products are manufactured and marketed by Laser-View Technologies for crane collision detection, zone control, and positioning applications. Typical usages for the Crane Sentry are to detect bridge to wall and bridge to bridge collisions, define restricted zones, and for positioning.
