ELOprotect provides mobile personnel protection in the very narrow aisle warehouse

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. ELOprotect is officially recognised 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 first automatically brakes the speed of the truck to walking pace (2.5 km/h), and if the person continues to approach it 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.

Flexible - and above all: manufacturer-independent

ELOprotect can be pre-installed in your narrow aisle truck manufacturer's factory. ELOprotect can also be retrofitted onto your existing fleet at your site.

Meet the highest requirements: powerful, add-on options and easy to handle

The basic configuration of ELOprotect consists of evaluation electronics, two laser scanners and a display and operating module.

Depending on your requirements, ELOprotect can be equipped with additional options:

  • Automatic triggering of creep speed if the laser scanner is covered in order to avoid manual deactivation of the mobile personnel protection system.
  • Optional comfort activation and deactivation so that cross traffic in front and any walls that are present do not lead to interference of alarm triggering.
