GKD Technik wi l l be showing PWS (Proximi ty Warning System) for the frst tme at Intermat

Designed to protect site workers from being injured by mobile site machinery the PWS system uses radio technology to detect the positon of pedestrians and warn the machinery operator of the hazard.

The system comprises up to 4 antenna on a vehicle or static machine and can detect either a person or a fixed object (fitted with a tag). The range of detection is set at the time of installation and can be tailored to provide greater range to the rear of the machine in zones that have the bigger blindspots.

Ranges between 2m and 10m can be set. A null field may be actvated in specifc locatons around the machine to mask the detection of tags that are in approved locatons to facilitate operatons. This might include crane controllers and slingers for example. The field can be switched on and of as required.

Each tag always reports its identty and batery status to the transmiter upon detecton. Optonally a distance of detecton may also be transmited.

Also on show for the frst tme will be the Incline Alert to allow safe use of small mobile plant on slopes.
