Crane Sentry Lite

Crane Sentry Lite Overhead Crane Collision Detection

Prevent unsafe crane to crane collisions and configure trolley end stops.

Crane Sentry Lite is our entry level collision monitoring product that senses crane-to-crane, crane to end stop, and crane to wall. This is most economical solution for basic monitoring.

Competitive Advantages

Crane Sentry Lite is a measurement  device and not a proximity sensor, so you can reliably detect distance between cranes by entering the value numerically.

  • Connects to up to (2) laser distance sensors
  • Simple dual line display shows set points, live readings, and error codes
  • Enter set points by  keying in values
  • Available operating modes:
    • Distance minimum/maximum
    • Crane to wall or crane to crane
  • (2) relay outputs per laser
  • 98 ft / 30 m range
  • 110 VAC/220 VAC single phase power required;  control box self-powers the connected laser sensors
  • Polycarbonate wall mount sealed enclosure with clear window

What does Crane Sentry Lite do?

Crane Sentry Lite provides an unprecedented level of basic protection from collisions from EOT cranes. It is our entry-level product that senses crane-to-crane, crane to end stop, and crane to wall. We challenge the norm by providing superior functionality, reliability, and ease of installation in a cost-effective package.

This solution provides basic monitoring for up to 98 ft. Crane Sentry Lite is a measurement device and not a proximity sensor, so you can reliably detect distance between cranes by entering the value numerically.

This system accepts up to (2) laser distance sensors that can be configured to monitor minimum or maximum distance conditions.

Typical monitoring applications:

  • Crane-to-Crane
  • Crane to end stop
  • Crane to wall
  • Trolley end stops

Crane Sentry as an all in one Collision Detection System

Commonly referred to as anti-collision, most competitor’s basic systems provide a laser displacement sensor, relays, and terminal blocks sold as a package. The sensors act primarily as proximity sensors, in which you teach a stop and possibly a slow limit. Most sensors require a retro-reflective target, which if it gets dirty, requires cleaning to operate. 

The Crane Sentry Lite, as our entry-level collision detection product, includes some of the key features we are known for, but in a lower-cost package and with the only basic functionality needed for simple collision monitoring.

Crane Sentry Lite Key Advantages Over Competition: 

  • No reflector required for operation
  • Visible red eye-safe laser spot
  • Ability to back away from near crane or wall in high speed with optional relays
  • Built-in error handling algorithm identifies an error from an out of range condition

What They’re Saying

“I had been looking for a foolproof system for anti-collision systems regarding cranes, up until I found out about Laser-View’s systems. They, by far, are the best on the market that I have been involved with.

The accuracy is outstanding. The installation is very simple and user friendly. I would recommend these systems to anyone looking for good results and a quality product.”
