Collision prevention with self-monitoring

FSA 42-30 offers optimum functional reliability through permanent electronic and optical self-monitoring. In case of faults, the sensor would be switched off and stop the crane. The crane can only be put back into operation after the damage has been repaired.

One system comprises two devices, one mounted on each crane. Each device consists of transmitter and receiver plus reflector. Even if one device fails (and stop its crane), the opposite one continues to work reliably thanks to the reflector.
