STS Collision Avoidance

STS Collision Avoidance

Application: Preventing crane collisions

Challenges: Outdoor environment with unpredicatble weather

Solution: Q120R Series Radar Sensor

Benefits: Radar technology is not affected by changes in weather, air condition, or light

Large cranes are typically made of very heavy-duty material that is in close proximity to one another. Collision among the cranes would require costly repairs and replacements. In order to prevent these collisions from happening, a solution is needed that can detect the cranes and warn operators of impending danger.

Description

Radar sensors are ideal in an environment where large cranes operate with dual detection zones to activate stop or warning signals. With an adjustable sensing range up to 24 m and two independent adjustable sensing zones, the sensor is easily configured for many applications.

Not only is radar technology a cost-effective way to protect expensive equipment and cargo, it is also immune to wind, rain, fog, light, humidity or air temperatures.
