ANTI-COLLISION SYSTEM AMCS
In order to guarantee maximum safety on the big construction sites with more tower cranes, we have equipped our cranes for the first time in Prague – project River Park Modřany – with an anti-collision system from the renowned French company AMCS Technologies, a specialist in safety on constructions sites.
The principle of the anti-collision system consists in a system of sensors, transmitters, receivers and mechanical limiters controlled by the control unit on the basis of pre-set inputs of limits and restrictions. Allows you to adjust the movement of the jib and the trolley so that they do not interfere where it could be dangerous. The system works in real time and space and can calculate the distances between the cranes and the speed of their movement and stop it at a specified distance from the obstacle. The system also has an anemometer – a device for measuring wind speed, these records can also be checked retrospectively and, if necessary, downloaded and documented.
The company Kranimex Bratislava is using the anti-collision system on the large construction project EUROVEA II at the moment, where up to 14 tower cranes will be deployed on the construction site area of only 300 x 100 m.
The camera system for towercranes is compact, wireless and has a very low power consumption (1,5 Watt) which is supplied by a solarpanel with back-up battery. Shock and vibration resistant camera operates in temperatures -30° C to +65° C. Crane operator can control 22x optical zoom with autofocus and watch the hook on a high resolution wide screen equipped with video output for recording.
