Proximity Alert System
The proximity alert system enhances safety in industrial workplaces by using a low-frequency magnetic field to create a detection zone around mobile equipment like forklifts.
Customisable and Compatible
Equipped with proximity sensors, the system triggers alarms when pedestrians are detected within the zone, preventing accidents and ensuring worker well-being. The proximity detection system’s accuracy and precision minimise false alarms, and it can be easily customised to suit different industries and is compatible with various mobile equipment types.
This forklift safety solution allows multiple pedestrians and machines to operate safely in the same area, boosting productivity without compromising safety. It is also easy to install and requires minimal maintenance, making it cost-effective for businesses seeking operational efficiency and high safety standards.
Effortless Installation and Minimal Maintenance
The proximity alert system is well-suited for manufacturing facilities, warehouses, ports, and docks, where pedestrian safety is a top priority. The forklift alert device detects potential collisions, enabling timely intervention and effective accident prevention.
With its advanced technology, customisable features, and scalability, the forklift system provides a reliable and efficient way to prevent accidents and ensure worker safety in industrial workplaces. The system comprises personal alarm devices (PADs) and a collision avoidance module (CAM), making it a comprehensive safety solution for industrial environments.

Personal Alarm Devices (PAD)
Personal alarm devices (PAD) detect pedestrians and prevent collisions. Pedestrians wear these systems, which contain sensors that detect magnetic fields emitted by the vehicle-mounted generator. Once detected, the sensors alert pedestrians and vehicle operators to the potential danger.
The alarms are classified into warning zone (Yellow) and danger zone (Red). When a pedestrian is detected in the warning zone, the sounder emits three beeps and activates the LED light. If the pedestrian is in the danger zone, the sounder gives a continuous beep and LED light to alert the operator and pedestrian of the danger.
XL Personal Alarm Device
The extra loud personal alarm device (XL PAD) is ideal for workspaces with extremely loud noises. Its design includes a clip-on LED light for shirts or vests and can register at a minimum of 100dB when placed within 4 inches of a person’s ear.
Similar to the personal alarm device (PAD), pedestrians wear the XL PAD, which contains sensing elements that detect magnetic fields. When a pedestrian is detected in the warning zone (Yellow) or danger zone (Red), the sounder will provide clear, simultaneous audible and visual warnings to the pedestrian and vehicle operator.
In the warning zone, the sounder produces a series of three beeps and activates the LED light, while in the danger zone, it produces a continuous beep and LED light. This ensures that pedestrians know the vehicle’s proximity and can take appropriate precautions to avoid potential collisions.
Avoidance Module (CAM)
The collision avoidance module (CAM) is a truck add-on component that functions as a personal alarm device. It works in conjunction with the magnetic field generator or the XL magnetic field generator by sensing their magnetic fields to determine the proximity of other trucks.
When it detects another truck nearby, it sends an alarm to alert the other truck of its presence. This module is essential for preventing collisions between trucks and is required for the MAC-A System. The CAM senses the magnetic field of the MAC and triggers an alarm to those working under the MAC to alert them of the truck’s presence in the protected area.
