ELOKON (Booth B1762), a European leader in lift truck safety solutions, made its U.S. debut at Modex 2018. The company featured several industrial truck safety technologies, including ELOprotect, a mobile personnel protection system designed specifically for lift trucks operating in very narrow aisle (VNA) warehouses.

ELOprotect, which won a German Industry Award in 2017, is an automatic, self-activating collision-avoidance system designed to prevent pedestrian-vehicle and vehicle-vehicle accidents in VNA warehouses. Tested and approved by government safety agencies, the system uses intelligent laser scanning technology to monitor the distance between industrial trucks and surrounding objects.

If ELOprotect detects a person or object in an unsafe area around a VNA lift truck, it automatically slows the vehicle down, and can, if desired, bring the vehicle to a complete stop. At the same time, the system generates acoustic and visual warnings to both the pedestrian and the vehicle driver.

To avoid false alarms, ELOprotect activates automatically when a VNA lift truck enters an aisle, and deactivates automatically when the truck travels outside the aisle.

The latest version of ELOprotect incorporates advanced vehicle-to- vehicle anti-collision technology, enabling more than one lift truck to operate in the same aisle at the same time. The system also offers many options, including automatic end-of- aisle slowing and stopping, dynamic speed-sensing zones, a lift-height limiter, and a low-temperature package for cold storage applications.
