In industrial settings where forklift traffic and pedestrians intersect, Collision Sentry® forklift collision detection and avoidance products can help reduce or eliminate “blind corner” collisions by providing a visual warning that alerts forklift drivers and pedestrians to approaching traffic. Working like a traffic light to flash a warning, the patent-pending Collision Sentry is easy to install, self-powered, highly visible and reliable.
The Collision Sentry Advantage
Self-powered Uses standard D - cell alkaline batteries, eliminating the need for any wiring to a facility's electrical system. Batteries are designed to operate for one to two years depending on usage. Low-battery indicator sends a warning well in advance of batteries needing replacement. Replacement batteries are readily available.
Passive Infrared Motion Sensors Programmed to detect motion on both sides of the corner. Sends ample warning to the forklift driver and the pedestrian to correct their movements. PIR sensors are a proven technology used in security lighting and alarm systems. Forklift collision detection and avoidance products are rugged, feature a wide lens range and don't wear out. PIR sensors are pre-set and ready to use. No adjustment necessary.
Highly visible LED lights Flash a warning when motion is detected from both directions. Long life, require minimal or no replacement. Warning lights flash only when someone is really there. Less false reads. Send powerful visual warning of a possible collision.
Portable Requires minimal space and no tools for installation. Installs easily and virtually anywhere. The unit is compact, lightweight and can be deployed immediately following installation. Can be easily snapped onto pallet racking systems using included magnet mounts. Tether included with each forklift collision detector for added fastening security.
