Roof Radar (RRA)

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.

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.

Features

  • 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.

FAQs

How does Roof Radar work?
The forklift must have on board speed limiting capability.
The Roof Radar kit is installed on the vehicle.
The sensing zone distance, sensitivity, and output configuration can be selected via the switches on the back of the Roof Radar sensor.

Can the Sensing Distance be adjusted to account for different ceiling heights?
There a 8 distances that can be set to from the sensor face to the roof to instigate a vehicle slowdown, 2m, 3m, 4m, 6m. 8m, 12m, 16m and 24m.

Can the radar sensitivity be adjusted to account for weaker objects to create a larger beam pattern?
Yes,there are 4 sensitivity settings available.

Can the output configuration be adjusted for normally open (NO) and normally closed (NC) functionality?
Yes. NO and NC functionality can be selected.

Can the radar response speed be adjusted?
Yes, there are four on and off response setting times available.

Are there outputs available to activate a light to indicate the change in speed?
Yes, there are two outputs available

Where should the Roof Radar be installed?
The Roof Rada should be installed on the housing on the driver cabin or the overhead guard of the vehicle.
