A standard option now with any Laser-View Technologies’ Crane Sentry® Side Pull Detection System is an override via a long-range proximity sensor.
This sensor is mounted over the drum and detects the presence of wire rope in the lands of the drum. This indicates that a hoist is high enough to disable the side pull system.
Single-reeved hoists often have a significant fleet angle, and this option minimizes limitations placed on the operator during hoisting operations.
