Marine Applications: Anti Collision
MARINE APPLICATIONS: ANTI COLLISION
About the application:
Anti collision warning system warns the crane operator for possible collision safety risks. The system is suitable for all kinds of cranes ranging from large lattice boom cranes to small cherry pickers and knuckle boom cranes.
A virtual bottom is part of the system, meaning a minimum clearance is set between crane boom-tip (and or boom) and the superstructure (or other deck equipment).
A virtual wall can also be defined in the system.
The calculated location of the crane boom-tip and hook height is compared with fixed obstacle positions (like drilling tower, accommodation, barge legs, superstructures). The operator can also define restricted work sectors.
Extra option is that the operator can define the size of the load that will be taken into account by the anti collision system.
The system is equipped with a display (screen size, slave displays for bridge and control room are as per customer requirement) that shows the operator the actual position in relation to the restricted areas.
Data-logging (with dedicated data-analyser software) is available to analyse movement and operator performance to optimise safety and operation.
Lift plans of actual lifts can be studied and verified for later use.
Camera systems (top view / bird-eye view / zoom) can be added.
