The Roof Radar (RRA) is a safety system that automatically reduces the speed of a vehicle when it goes inside a building. When a ceiling is detected by the Radar, it will provide a trigger for slow down until the vehicle goes outside again.
It can be integrated into any kind of vehicle. The Roof Radar detects superstructures (i.e. ceilings) across a range of up to 24 metres with its radar-based sensor system, to automatically reduce the vehicle’s speed.
The Roof Radar (RRA) has four reaction time settings and eight detection range settings. This means that even complex operational conditions can be catered for. The sensitivity of the controllable transmitter also ensures that small superstructures such as bridges, tree canopies etc will not trigger any unnecessary reduction in the forklift’s speed.
Areas of Application
- Reduction of forklift speed in areas with pedestrian activity or where others are working.
- High forklift traffic areas.
How it Works
As a vehicle with Roof Radar installed enters a building the radar will detect the roof and automatically initiate its low speed until it leaves the building again. The detection zone distance, sensitivity and output settings can be customised to the needs of each vehicle.
- Increase safety by automatic forklift speed limitation on entry to a Warehouse.
- The Roof Radar automatically recognises when a vehicle enters the Warehouse based on the radar detection distance set for the roof height to limit speed.
- The vehicle can be operated at a limited safe speed in the areas where there is a risk for pedestrians or other vehicles.
- The vehicle can be operated at full speed and can cover long trips quickly in the areas that it is allowed.
