"A New Cost Effective Solution for Vehicle Proximity Alert & Collision Avoidance
Orbit Communications Pty Ltd Launches their New BodyGuard proximity alert and collision avoidance system.
The BodyGuard Proximity Alert system provides a cost effective solution for industrial collision avoidance solution for applications that involve moving Machinery, Heavy Vehicles and Forklifts, Utility Vehicles and/or personnel.
Applications: Warehouse Safety, Doorways and Pedestrian Access, Open Cut Mines, Outdoor Heavy Machinery/Vehicle avoidance.
BodyGuard provides continuous detection and notification of proximity between moving objects and other moving or fixed objects.
BodyGuard works by setting up an invisible shield around the object being protected. BodyGuard uses a specially coded digital radio transmission between system components. Whenever this invisible field is penetrated by another object that is fitted with a BodyGuard unit, an alarm is activated to warn the driver/operator to pay attention.
The BodyGuard proximity alarm system can be used to protect people, vehicles and property and has wide ranging applications that involve personnel, forklifts, cranes, heavy Vehicles, moving machinery etc.
The BodyGuard proximity alarm system is user-configurable. The user can set the desired protection zone range around each object as required for the application.
The BodyGuard system will detect objects right through smoke, fog, or dust. It is immune to interference by heat, sound or dust.
BodyGuard Components Include:
Personnel Tags This Tag is worn by your personnel or site visitors. The device can be attached to a hard Hat or worn on the belt. This is a transmit-only device that is detected by other BodyGuard Devices
Sensor / Vehicle Unit Transmits a digitally coded radio signal that other units can detect as well as receives and process coded signals from other Sensor or Tag units. Fitted to moving vehicles such as forklift, utility vehicles, road trucks, the unit detects other BodyGuard devices as well as transmits signals that can be detected by other BodyGuard Devices.
Control Unit This unit enables multiple sensors to be fitted to a vehicle, provides logging of all proximity notifications from the Sensor Units on the Vehicles and enables remote setup using a PDA or Laptop Computer.
Fixed Unit These units are typically installed around work areas, door ways and pedestrian access ways.
Beacon Unit A battery powered unit that transmits only. This is a moveable device that is useful for protecting your temporary hazardous zones and keep out areas.
Programmed by your Computer.
