LCAS - Laser Collision Avoidance System

Your overhead equipment is too valuable to your operation to take chances. LCAS will protect cranes and hoists from contact with other equipment or end walls.

Using Retroreflective Class 1 Laser technology, the LCAS's simple push-button set up permits you to program your system to activate the Alarm output and Stop functions at exactly the distance you require. With a range of 50 meters (164 feet), the LCAS can discriminate distance changes to a resolution of 3 mm (0.12 inches).

LCAS protects stationary equipment, too. Its warning Alarm output will be activated if the unit detects a target moving within its set warning distance. That gives your operators time to take corrective action before a costly collision occurs.
