The Safety Controller unit provides the active control logic for the anti-collision and safety functions. The unit continuously tracks all measurement signals from wired and wireless modules installed and instantly activates the brakes if any safety limits are exceeded. The system offers many customization options for easy integrations, including alarms for an early warning signal, disengaging the hoist clutch to slow down moving equipment when approaching safety zone limits, and a wide range of industrial interfaces for pneumatic and hydraulic braking systems, load-cells, dump valves, control panels, etc. An over-ride switch enables easy maintenance with automatic re-activation, and activity based data logging for troubleshooting and reporting. In addition a wireless data-link offers advanced telemetry and secure configuration from any mobile device, a tablet, or laptop/computer.
The Crown Saver unit provides an anti-collision zone management function preventing the blocks from striking the crown structure. A counter weight is suspended by a length of chain that establishes the crown safety zone limit. The unit is easy to install with no power or signaling cables, integrating advanced wireless data-link and long life batteries for a maintenance free operation.
The Digital Revolution Encoder unit monitors the moving block position by tracking the draw-works revolutions and using advanced calibration tables for accurate measurements. The unit can serve as an advanced Floor Saver function by signaling alarms and activating the main brakes if the moving block passes the programmable safety zone limit. The unit also provides speed and position monitoring for display on the system dashboard, in addition to data logging for telemetry applications
