IMHX 2019 - Safety and assistance systems for industrial vehicles
24 -27 September | Stand 6E214 | NEC, Birmingham, UK
Following our successful debut at IMHX 2016 we are looking forward to being in Birmingham once again in September for the UK’s largest event for logistics and supply chain professionals. Safety is taken very seriously in this sector and the exhibits on our stand will demonstrate how our technology can make the warehouse and its surroundings a much safer environment to protect the workforce and equipment.
Award winning products on show
Amongst the exhibits will be two award winning products: the ELOshield proximity detection system and the ELOprotect safety system for forklift trucks in VNA operation. ELOshield is a UWB-based assistance system that reduces the risk of accidents in high risk zones by automatically detecting when a person enters the danger area surrounding a forklift and sending multiple warnings to the driver and the pedestrian. It can also be used to prevent collisions between forklifts or, with the stationary version, for monitoring danger areas such as busy intersections.
The ELOprotect safety system ensures the safe operation of VNA forklifts to prevent accidents with personnel or collisions between forklifts. A key feature of this is the integrated laser scanner, which creates a protective field, detects approaching pedestrians in danger areas and slows the truck down or brings it to a complete standstill in emergencies. The new version of ELOprotect incorporates a high performance scanner with a longer detection range.
A further development is the ELOfleet4 forklift fleet management system, controlled by an app on a smartphone or tablet of the customer’s choice. “Using commercially available smartphones makes this fleet management system much easier and intuitive to operate,” said ELOKON MD Alexander Glasmacher.
Flexible and tailor made solutions
ELOKON’s products are flexible and above all OEM independent and can be pre-installed in the manufacturer's factory or retrofitted onto an existing vehicles on site. They can also be used in areas where robots, cobots and AGVs are deployed. Variants of ELOshield and ELOprotect are available to accord with individual customer requirements.
