Systems Prevent Crane Collisions

Systems Prevent Crane Collisions
Magnetek Inc.

Additions to the company’s collision-avoidance products consist of two systems. The ReFlx 45 and LaserGuard2 join the ReFlx 120 as options to enhance the performance of overhead material handling systems by preventing crane-to-crane or crane-to-end-stop collisions. The ReFlx 45 is described as a cost-effective solution for a single stop event with one contact point. All electronic components are built into the unit’s IP67-rated housing, enabling installation on overhead material handling applications. ReFlx 45 has a detection range of 3 to 45 ft. and the system includes a sensor, 2x2 foot reflector, and sensor bracket. LaserGuard2 is able to detect between 8 in. and 150 ft. It uses self-monitoring optical lasers to check a crane’s position and the multi-distance detection feature manages crane-to-crane and crane-to-wall operation. The system includes a laser support unit, 2x2 foot reflector, laser, mounting bracket, and sensor cable. For more information, visit
