ELOshield - Proximity Detection System for Pedestrians, Forklift Trucks and Hazardous Areas

ELOshield - assistance system for forklift trucks
reduces the risk of accidents in high risk or high traffic zones

ELOshield is the innovative personnel detection system from ELOKON. Anywhere where forklift trucks and personnel work in close proximity can constitute a hazard, and protecting the workforce is paramount. ELOshield is a radio-based proximity identification system that considerably enhances safety by automatically detecting when a person enters the danger area surrounding a forklift.

ELOshield can also be used to prevent collisions between forklift trucks or, with the stationary version, for monitoring danger areas such as busy intersections with high levels of internal traffic.

Warning and protection zones for maximum safety

Individually configurable protection zones: ELOshield offers accident prevention using sophisticated warning zones. These zones can be programmed circularly, symmetrically (optional) and even as user-defined fields (optional) with a maximum range of up to 25 metres.

The advantage

forklift trucks can safely pass other vehicles or pedestrians as they are automatically limited to their own path by the protective zone surrounding them, without causing false alarms.

Applications: 360-degree compatibility

ELOshield works on robots, cobots (collaborative robots) and AGVs (automated guided vehicles), as well as forklifts and other industrial vehicles.

The benefits of ELOshield: are obvious:

  • Safe pedestrian protection in hazardous areas
  • Maximum flexibility
  • Customised zones for optimum protection
  • Compatible with all major forklift truck models
  • Safer and more efficient material handling operations
  • Protection of up to 500 employees
  • Detection range up to 25 metres

This is how the ELOshield UWB-based protection system works

Proximity Detection System

ELOshield is an innovative, UWB-based protection system designed to shield vehicles and staff (ELOshieldGO). A mobile version (ELOshieldDRIVE) monitors “danger zones” of up to 25 metres around moving vehicles (both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-person). A fixed-site version (ELOshieldZONE) monitors accident-prone areas, such as high-traffic aisle intersections.

ELOKON GmbH takes great care in compiling the contents of this 3D animation. They are nevertheless only meant to provide non-binding general information and cannot replace detailed individual advice to help the prospective buyer make his decision.

The ELOshield assistance system can only support the driver within the specified system limits. The responsibility for remaining sufficiently alert and carrying out driving or operational duties always rests with the drivers and/or personnel.
