GKD Tecknik showcases PWS
GKD Technik will be showing its PWS (Proximity Warning System) for the first time at Intermat 2012.
Designed to protect site workers from being injured by mobile site machinery, the PWS system uses radio technology to detect the position of pedestrians and warn the machinery operator of the hazard. Each time a worker comes to close to a machine a log is generated and, using optional telemetry, the contractor can monitor site safety. Anti-collision facilities ensure that all mobile machines can detect the hazard simultaneously.
Distributors are being sought for PWS, which may be fitted to all sizes of machinery including fork lift trucks, excavators, wheeled loaders, dump trucks, pavers and rollers. Also on show for the first time will be the Incline Alert to allow safe use of small mobile plant on slopes.
