Crane Sentry® as an all in one Collision Detection System
Commonly referred to as anti-collision, most competitor’s basic systems provide a laser displacement sensor, relays, and terminal blocks sold as a package. The sensors act primarily as proximity sensors, in which you teach a stop and possibly a slow limit. Most sensors require a retro-reflective target, which if it gets dirty, requires cleaning to operate.
The Crane Sentry® Lite, as our entry-level collision detection product, includes some of the key features we are known for, but in a lower-cost package and with the only basic functionality needed for simple collision monitoring.
Crane Sentry® Lite Key Advantages Over Competition:
- No reflector required for operation
- Visible red eye-safe laser spot
- Ability to back away from near crane or wall in high speed with optional relays
- Built-in error handling algorithm identifies an error from an out of range condition
