Cattron Group International, a manufacturer of remote control products for industrial use, offers its Laser Collision Avoidance System (LCAS). This system contains advanced laser technology to ensure overhead cranes and hoists do not collide with end walls or other overhead equipment.
LCAS uses retro-reflective Class I laser technology, which can detect either stationary or moving objects. The field-adjustable LCAS can be programmed for alarm, slowed, or stopped at any user-selected distance. With a range of 50 meters (164 feet), the device can sense distance changes of as little as 3.0 mm (0.12 inches). The alarm output of LCAS is activated whenever a unit detects any target moving within its set warning distance, giving operators sufficient time to take corrective action before a costly collision can occur.
Additional LCAS features include continuous fault monitoring, input voltage from 100 to 240 VAC, solid-state control outputs with optical isolation to 4,000 volts, and a single standard NEMA 4X (IP66) enclosure with an optional internal heater for cold temperature applications.
