ELOprotect - safety system for forklift trucks
provides mobile personnel protection and collision avoidance in warehouses
ELOprotect is a self-actuating laser scanner anti-collision system for safety and more throughput in very narrow aisles.
The mobile personnel protection system is an automatically operating safety device for protecting personnel when industrial trucks are being used in narrow aisles.
Collision protection in narrow aisles
ELOprotect is officially recognised in Germany as a replacement measure for operating the narrow aisle warehouse – "replacement measure" because it replaces the safety distance that is otherwise required in narrow aisles. If the safety distance is not maintained, the warehouse cannot normally be operated.

How it works
Providing double protection
The personnel protection system ELOprotect conforms to the valid EU Directives. ELOprotect is type-tested according to the requirements of annex IV of the Machinery Directive.
Increasing safety and responsibility awareness when using forklift trucks
If a narrow aisle forklift truck drives into an aisle, ELOprotect is automatically activated and monitors the danger area in the current direction of travel whilst the vehicle is moving. When the vehicle is stationary, ELOprotect monitors both potential directions of travel in order to prevent anyone approaching unnoticed.
If a person is detected in the aisle, ELOprotect automatically brakes the vehicle to a stop. As soon as the driver has made sure that the danger is no longer present, he can reset the alarm by pressing the operating button (deliberate acknowledgement), and the forklift can resume operation. If the forklift leaves the aisle, ELOprotect is automatically deactivated.
