Collision Avoidance Systems

Magnetek's LaserGuard2 enhances the performance of overhead material handling systems by preventing crane-to-crane or crane-to-end-stop collisions. Avoiding collisions results in reduced maintenance costs and increased operator safety. This system is ideal for use with all types of cranes with adjustable frequency drives, soft starters, or contactor controls.

Features and Benefits

Magnetek's LaserGuard 2 is the most technologically advanced collision avoidance system available, using optical lasers to monitor your crane’s position. The system can take action at 3 distance set-points to manage crane-to-crane and wall-to-crane operation. Integrated intelligence monitors the power quality and laser signal integrity, which provides extra layers of safety.
