ARINAlert – Forklift Collision Avoidance System prevents accidents between forklifts and pedestrians and other forklifts.
The ARINAlert collision avoidance solution allows forklift operators and workers (pedestrians) to automatically, safely and reliably communicate with each other by providing audible and visual alerts to both parties.
Improve safety and meet duty of care to employee
Reduce maintenance costs from collisions
Improve productivity by allowing pedestrians to concentrate on their tasks (and not forklift activities)
How it works
Attach a monitoring unit with audio and visual alerts to forklifts
Pedestrians have a wearable personal protective device (PPD)
Forklift units detect pedestrians and other forklifts and warn operator based on distance from forklift
Alerts can be customized based on where the forklift is operating
Patented technology and product
Maximum 0.3 second response time
Precision in distance measurement: 2 inches
Three Configurable Zones
Installation instructions for attaching components to forklifts can be found here (see ARINAlert Forklift Monitoring Unit and Forklift Tag). No special tools required, just standard hand tools.
Set adjustable parameters (see User Manual and Product Information)
Each worker must have a PED on their person.
The PEDs must be charged to function and are designed to last for 16 hours (double shift) on a full battery charge.
