ELOback is a self-actuating reverse warning system which protects vehicles from colliding with other objects when maneuvering backwards.
Forklift truck movements pose a number of risks in the warehouse, even under the most favourable working conditions, and the limited visibility to the rear of the truck makes this area particularly vulnerable to accidents. The driver assistance system ELOback is an effective means to remove the risks associated with these weak spots. It uses ultrasound- controlled sensors to automatically detect the presence of objects in their operational range. Drivers are then alerted to potential danger via visual and acoustic warnings on a user-friendly display.
Multifunctional object recognition
The ultrasound sensor, specially developed for ELOback, reliably recognises mobile as well as static objects, regardless of their physical properties. The system features a long-range detection zone of approximately 3.5 metres and thanks to the additional close-range detection angle of 120 degrees, it also registers any object or obstacle within a 1.5m radius. Both of these zones can be calibrated independently from each other.
Extending the detection zone
In order to be able to extend the detection zone when particularly wide vehicles are in operation, ELOback is also available as a Syncro-Set. This involves fitting a second synchro-switched ultrasound sensor to the truck, which broadens the lateral detection field to up to 4 metres.
