The KAD-300 crane collision avoidance sensor is used to reduce the potential for collisions between overhead cranes, monorail systems, and fixed objects or obstructions located in the crane runway area. Built with a rugged metal housing, this device offers three separate outputs for distance settings up to 100 feet and is used to initiate slow-down and stop commands. In addition to the three outputs, the KAD-300 is equipped with a trouble (FAULT) output that will energize in the event a failure occurs with the internal emitter and receiver components.
A typical application would have the sensor unit mounted on the crane bridge and a reflective target on the opposing end wall or crane. With limited hardware, the KAD-300 allows for an ease of installation and maintenance. The flexibility of this device will allow you to configure it to variable frequency drives and stepped controls.
