Introducing the AisleAlert Collision Warning System
Motion sensors scan for converging traffic and activate an extremely visible flashing red light to warn pedestrians and forklifts
This video illustrates the new AisleAlert intersection warning system, which is ideal for warehouses, manufacturing facilities, and other applications where visibility or heavy cross-traffic volumes may cause deadly collisions between forklifts, pedestrians and other industrial traffic.
As traffic approaches the protected intersection, motion sensors detect the converging motion and trigger a bright LED light that flashes down onto the floor below the sensor at the center of the intersection. This positioning is unique–and remarkably visible. Since the system utilizes reliable motion detection and intelligent controls, it activates only when traffic is detected in at least two directions moving toward the monitored area. Check it out if you are looking for an economical way increase safety in your facility.
