The Visual Alert System is an innovative development which warns pedestrians and/or forklifts in situations of risk by projecting customisable signals on the ground.
WHY USE THE VISUAL ALERT SYSTEM
This system differs from other signage options in that it’s highly effective and visible.
Experience shows us that projections on the ground provide better visibility than those projected above.
They are also better than the commonly used panoramic mirrors since these are often placed too high to be seen and paid attention to. In many cases, these mirrors become part of the landscape of the workspace and operators don’t give them due consideration.
With a projector that emits a signal on the ground, it’s easier to capture a person’s attention. This person receives a much more direct and easier to detect the warning.
HOW DOES IT WORK
The system has two types of projectors available: a 50w and a 120w.
The 50w projector is used for sites that have low ambient light, while the 120w projector is much more powerful and suitable for warehouses or production plants with lots of lighting.
The projector has the option to have 1 to 3 different colour lenses to project 1 to 3 colour symbols on the ground.. The projected symbols are customisable.
This system only involves placing the projector in the position where you want to locate the warning symbols.
Some examples of what can be projected are a forklift sign, pedestrian signs, a STOP warning, a pedestrian crossing, a speed limit sign, a “no smoking” sign or a signal indicating that the use of mobile phones is prohibited. There are many other options available.
WHERE CAN THE SYSTEM BE USED
This system is ideal for use in:
|spaces separating production areas from offices|
|corridors and transit areas in industrial spaces|
|blind spots in work spaces|
- Product durability of the projectors
- Customisation according to the needs of each client
- Simple installation – it only involves placing the projector in the location where you want the signal to be seen
- Image is easy to see
- Does not wear out
- Can be turned on and off
- Projected signs can be changed
- Very visible
- Attract attention
- Can also be combined with the PAS System to trigger the projector to turn on when approaching a designated area.
Toyota combined Claitec’s PAS and VAS Systems to solve a need developed by OEZ Letohrad of the Siemens group in Europe, which produces automatic compact switches for customers around the world. In this case, Toyota evaluated the occupational safety threats present in the mentioned firm and offered a solution to avoid the risk of possible collisions between loading equipment and employees in unsafe places and areas with high volume of traffic, such as crossings and corridors.
