Proximity Alert Components are a range of additional devices that include magnetic field generators, light and audio warning modules, personal alarm device chargers, and other pieces of equipment. We supply a comprehensive range of forklift proximity alert components to provide businesses with workplace safety solutions. These devices are designed for specific work environments that utilise forklift equipment. Om Mas’s proximity alert components provide businesses with several options for customisable solutions.
The Magnetic Field Generator is a complete system made up of 4 different components: the Generator, the Warning Module, the Cab Silencer, and the Power Cable.
The Magnetic Field Generator is a complete system that includes the Generator, Warning Module, Cab Silencer, and Power Cable.
Together with this, an additional component, known as the Collision Avoidance Module, can be installed to alert drivers when other trucks are close to the CAM.
The XL Magnetic Field Generator System comes with 4 different components that make up the system, including the XL Generator, Warning Module, Cab Silencer, and Power Cable.
The Warning Module – Light/Sound provides drivers with audio and visual warnings when a pedestrian is nearby while driving in reverse. With the audio warning rated at 103dB, this product connects chains directly in the warning module with light and sound (included in the MFG system).
This version of the Warning Module only provides users with a visual warning when a pedestrian walks behind the driver, giving enough time to prevent the collision. This product can be connected directly to the warning module with light and sound (included in the MFG system).
The Cab Silencer is installed to the Magnetic Field Generator System to silence a vehicle operator’s Personal Alarm Device (PAD) from detecting magnetic fields from other Magnetic Field Generators nearby. Hence, the Cab Silencer enables the operator’s PAD’s automatic disabling when in the protected area of the vehicle’s cab.
The battery within the Personal Alarm Device (PAD) is required to be fully charged daily. The 10 Port Charger comes in 3 different channels – Single Bay (to charge 1 PAD), 5-BAY (charges up to 5 PADs at a time), and 10 Bay (charges up to 10 PADs at a time).
The Checkout Station helps to verify the functionality of various devices, ensuring they are in working condition. These devices include the Personal Alarm Device, Sounder, Magnetic Field Sensors, LED, and Battery Charger.
The PAD Test Module ensures all Personal Alarm Devices function correctly, minimising workplace hazards due to device malfunction. Besides, the PAD Test Module serves as a reminder for employees to charge their PAD daily. The PAD Test Module is supplied with a Test Station, Power Cable, and Warning Module, best suited for warehouses where forklifts and other vehicles are used.
The Relay system analyses operational performance and proximity events data, providing businesses with efficient data collection and reporting.
The Data Module analyses operational performance and proximity events data, providing users with efficient data collection and reporting.
The Structure Monitor protects permanent structures that are in constant repair or are expensive to replace. It can be used as a standalone device when a solar panel is added or connected to a 110Vac. The Structure Monitor senses the generator on the truck as it approaches and sends a warning signal back to the truck. The arc length around the Structure Monitor can be adjusted easily by taking off the top cover and slightly turning the pot with a 3/32″ slotted screwdriver.
*Solar Panel, Controller Box, and Mounting Plate are priced separately*
The Access Monitor enables employers wearing a Personal Alarm Device (PAD) access into controlled areas. This serves as a reminder to employees to ensure daily charge of their PAD and prevent any device misplacement. When the Access Monitor detects the presence of a PAD, it sends a command to a relay box and fixture with an on/off mechanism, controlling the gates to open or close. The Access Monitor is supplied with a Power Cable, Warning Module, and Relay.
Used as a standalone device or in conjunction with the MAC-A system, the Area Monitor can produce visual and audio warning alarms to workers of an approaching truck. It is best used at intersections and pedestrian areas with blind corners. The length of the area around the monitor is adjustable and can be done by taking off the top cover and slightly turning the pot with a 3/32″ slotted screwdriver. The Area Monitor is supplied with a Relay box and 50 ft of 18/2 Thermostate wire. However, lights are not included.
The Mechanised Area Control (MAC) comes in two specifications:
The MAC-A System requires the truck to enter the area, equipped with a Magnetic Field Generator System with Collision Avoidance Module (CAM), and the workers to wear a Personal Alarm Device (PAD). When all three devices are used simultaneously, it keeps pedestrians and equipment separated, preventing them from occupying the controlled area simultaneously. The MAC-A System can generate an adjustable magnetic field suspended about 11 ft above the designated area, up to 30 ft wide, and can extend up to 160″ in length. On the other hand, the Collision Avoidance Module senses the magnetic field from the MAC, activating warning alerts such as lights, horns, etc. Thus, when all workers wearing the Personal Alarm Device are out of the magnetic field of the MAC-A System, the truck will be able to enter the area. The MAC-A System is supplied with a MAC Controller, 2 relay boxes, MAC system up to 160 ft of conduit and wire. However, lights are not included.
Compared to the MAC-A System, which gives off warning alerts when pedestrians and trucks enter the controlled area, the MAC-Z System prevents the Personal Alarm Devices (PAD) worn by workers from sounding when they are in the protected area. The MAC-Z System generates an adjustable magnetic field suspended at about 11 ft above the designated area, up to 30 ft wide, and can extend up to 160″ in length. When all workers wearing Personal Alarm Devices are in the magnetic field of the MAC-Z System, a truck can enter the area without triggering the alarm.
*For areas extending over 160″, users would need to purchase an additional MAC-Z System.*
The Room Silent Zone/Jammer creates an area where the Personal Alarm Devices will not activate even when a truck equipped with a generator is nearby. Common areas that need a Room Silent Zone include office(s), conference rooms, workrooms, or a cafeteria next to a truck path. The silent field is oval-shaped and can be easily adjusted to fit within the confines of the room by removing the top cover and turning the PWM pot. As the magnetic field penetrates walls and other obstructions, all Personal Alarm Devices worn within the field of the Room Silent Zone will not activate. The Jammer is an alternative to the Room Silent Zone when the EMI noise is too high. The field’s radius (major axis) for the Room Silent Zoon and Jammer is between 6 ft to 28 ft.
Compared to the Room Silent Zone/Jammer, the Silent Sot is designed for smaller areas near a truck path. Covering an area of just 2 ft to 9 ft, the Silent Spot can be used in workstations, desk(s), or personal work areas. Since magnetic fields can penetrate walls and other obstructions, using the Silent Spot can prevent Personal Alarm Devices worn by workers from activating. The silent field is circle-shaped and can be easily adjusted to fit within designated areas by removing the top cover and turning the PWM pot. Thus, the Silent Spot is an excellent alternative to the Room Silent Zone/Jammer when the EMI noise is too high.
