          • The forklift truck RFID-Aura, with a special RFID tag in the pocket or on a keyring, is an RFID system for the recognition of personnel, tried and tested over many years. The encryption technology used ensures safety and convenience. We use this technology for the protection of pedestrians in forklift truck traffic

            RFID-Aura 207
            The RFID-Aura 207 forms an almost spherically shaped protection area all around the forklift truck. The area which the driver cannot see into when manoeuvring or storing or removing. The RFID-Aura 207

            Warns the driver of the presence of people
            Thereby protecting the people in the vicinity of the vehicle
            Therange is individually adjustable between 1 – 8m and can, therefore be adapted to special requirements. By means of anintegrable "booster" the range can be extended up to 15m.
          • IOG InDoor/OutDoorSpeed Regulator

          • In order to prevent accidents, a very effective and efficient measure is to reduce speed inside buildings. The tbm InDoor/ OutDoor speed regulators release the speed restriction when travelling outside the building. Automatically, and without the need for any additional equipment on the door through-paths.Thus the full performance of the vehicle can be utilized outside the building.
          • GBA Hazard Area Indicator

          • Falling loads are a great danger for pedestrians who are order picking in close proximity to the vehicle when goods are being stored or removed with a reach truck. Here there is a real threat to life! With the hazardous area indicator we simply and effectively reduce this risk.

            Hazardous Area Indicator GBA 100
            With the hazardous area indicator, GBA 100,the hazardous areas to the left and right of a reach truck are indicated by means of high output power LEDs and a clearly visible laser line on the floor. There by pedestrians are clearly warned: "Stop! Serious Risk! Do not enter the marked area!"

            So that no sensor overload occurs, the hazardous area indicator, GBA-100, is only activated in the event of serious risk, that is, when the load has been lifted above a specified height.
          • Hazardous Situation Indicator GSA-107

          • The hazardous situation indicator GSA-107 is a sensor-controlled, stationary warning device for intersections, pedestrian crossings or curvesand, situationdependent, distinctively and conspicuously illuminates the hazardous area with a Power-Blue- Spot.

            The hazardous situation indicator GSA-107 acts preventively directly at the hazard point and attracts a very high level of attention. The hazard point becomes "live" and responds by itself to potential or imminent danger. Powerful – effectiveand efficient.

            Sensor-controlled, the hazardous situation indicator GSA-107 differentiates between vehicles and pedestrians and recognizes the direction of travel of the vehicle and the direction of walking of the pedestrian.

            The hazardous situation indicator GSA-107 permanently monitors every movement at the intersection.

              • Snow- and Flood water AlarmSystem SAS-307

              • The load capacity of a flat roof is limited. Due to snow or also heavy rain, this limit is frequently reached without it being noticed. Catastrophic roof collapses are the result. Innovative roof load monitoring protects against potential damage.
                  • The Snow and Accumulated Water Alarm System, SAS-307

                  • The snow and accumulated water alarm system, SAS-307, is the professional system for the continuous and all year round measurement of the actual roof load.

                    In winter it averts the risk of a too high a snow load and in summer it warns of unnoticed accumulated water which can collect due to heavy rain.

                    Depending on the roof load, two individually adjustable threshold values trigger a pre pre-alarm and eventually an evacuate alarm.

                    The snow and accumulated water alarm system can be quickly and simply installed on a flat roof by a roofing contractor (and possibly an electrician).
                  • Monitoring Stations

                  • Three monitoring stations are installed on the roof surface at selected and exposed positions. Through this "triple system" there is the three-fold security of also being able to recognize different roof loads.

                    The monitoring stations are fully equipped with electronics and sensors. They have a measurement range of 5 to 750kg/m². The measurement tolerance is 1% of the maximum load capacity. With a diameter of only 50cm and a weight of 10 kg, they are easy to handle.

                    Every monitoring station is equipped with a locating rod which clearly identifies its position, even with a snow-covered roof.
                  • Control Cabinet

                  • The control cabinet with integrated evaluation electronics is the actual alarm centre of the snow and accumulated water alarm system. The monitoring stations are connected to it.

                    Via the integrated LCD display, the monitoring stations can be set and the load values of the individual monitoring stations read off. Optical / acoustic alarm transmitters can be connected to pluggable switched outputs.

                    Optionally, the control cabinet can also be equipped with an analogue output in order to connect the existing building services systems. The triggering of the alarm can also be done optionally via a GSM modem over which the responsible persons are alertedvia SMS.

                    On request, the control cabinet can also be supplied with remote access via the internet.
                  • Pre-assembled Control Cables

                  • For the simple installation and connection of the monitoring stations to the control cabinet, pre-assembled cables in lengths of 30m, 50m or 100m with plug connectors in IP 68 are available.

                    With this innovative sensor technology we satisfy the highest requirements in the area of property protection.
                  • Flat Roof Leak Location

                  • For the preservation of the value of a building, comprehensive roof and building management is necessary. To this end we work hand in hand with the roofing experts of the SLD – Scandinavian Leak Detection.

                    Highly accurate measurement results by means of electrical impulse technology - the SLD Leak Detection measurement system locates even the slightest of sites.

                    Use the cost saving leak measurement methodology, too, for the accurate documentation of all the weak points of your flat roof.
