Collision Avoidance System

The Collision Avoidance System (CAS-G2) by Claitec cautions forklift drivers of the presence of another truck at settable distances of 5-20 metres. The Collision Avoidance System (CAS-G2) features a highly advanced proximity detection system that keeps track of all movement on the floor.

A light and/or buzzer is triggered when another forklift is detected, alerting the driver to potential hazards in the area. Blind spots or intersections can also be setup with a Collision Avoidance System (CAS-G2) unit, making the crash avoidance system a valuable piece of safety equipment. Industrial workspaces are full of hazards, but by installing an accident avoidance system you can leverage the power of technology and reduce the risk of accident and injury.

The forklifts Collision Avoidance System (CAS-G2) cautions forklift drivers of the presence of another truck within settable distances of 5-20 metres

A Collision Avoidance System (CAS-G2) unit is installed in each of the forklifts to detect each other.
When a forklift detects another forklift in its safety zone, the driver is immediately warned about the potential risk by activation of a light and/or buzzer.
If speed limiting capability is available, the Collision Avoidance System (CAS-G2) unit can be wired in to slow down the forklift on detection.

The CAS-G2 Kit fitted to the forklift includes the following components:

  • CAS-G2 unit – detector antenna fitted to the forklift to detect when another forklift is within the set detection zone of either 5, 10, 15 or 20m
  • Power Supply 24V – DC converter dependent upon forklifts power required
  • RGB Light/buzzer – light and/or buzzer will flash when another forklift is within the detection zone

There are two zones, Danger and Warning that can be set at either 5,10.15 or 20m.

Collision Avoidance System (CAS-G2) alert zones

Areas of Application

  • Loading and unloading zones
  • Poor visibility areas at junctions between pedestrians and forklifts
  • Areas with high forklift traffic

FAQ's

What is the primary function of the CAS-G2 system?

The primary function of the CAS system is to warn other forklifts operators when a forklift is inside the detection zone which will trigger an intermittent light and/or buzzer. Once the forklift is out of range the light and/or buzzer will cease activating.

What is the detection distance between the forklifts?

The detection distance is settable between 5-20m. Normal settings are either 5,10,15 or 20m. Other distances are available.

Can lights/buzzers be triggered at blind corners or intersections?

Yes, if a CAS-G2 kit is installed at the blind corner or intersection to trigger a light/buzzer or traffic light on forklift approach.

Can the CAS-G2 system also detect pedestrians if required?

No. A PAS kit has to be installed to have pedestrian to forklift detection.
