The Linde Safety Guard system increases the safety of all personnel involved in internal traffic. It can see around corners and through walls, reduces speeds automatically and can be programmed to suit any hazardous scenario.
The Linde Safety Guard uses warning zones to prevent accidents. Transmitters are positioned on industrial trucks, walls, racking and even carried by the personnel themselves. This ensures rapid detection, early warning and avoidance of hazardous situations.
If a pedestrian and a truck look likely to collide, then both the industrial truck and the pedestrian are warned simultaneously. A receiver in the truck indicates how many pedestrian personnel are approaching the danger zone and from which direction. Pedestrians are warned by the
transmitter they have on their person. This also works through walls and racking.
Speed restriction zones can also be pre-defined and programmed, so that the system automatically reduces the truck’s speed in these zones and also warns the truck operator. This minimizes accidents between trucks and personnel in areas like production, order picking areas and busy intersections.
All this is only possible because the Linde Safety Guard system is able to precisely determine the position of marked objects or personnel with an accuracy of ten centimeters accuracy and the warning zones are individually adjustable. This level of precision also helps to prevent false alarms. Moreover, a broadband
radio signal in the 4 GHz range (UWB) helps to ensure reliability by eliminating interference from WiFi, Bluetooth or RFID.
The system can be adapted to meet any safety requirements. It consists of individual modules and can be tailored to the respective hazardous situation on individual sites.
