Crane Sentry Side Pull Increases SafetySeptember 1, 2019
The Crane Sentry Side Pull is a hoist management system that solves for side pull before it happens. Using technologies that include a solid state, dual axis sensor, the Side Pull detect imbalances before they become safety issues, preventing a load from lifting if side pull is detected.
Hoist control for side pull risks is obviously a safety solution. If a lift is not centered vertically, and lifts at an angle, staff injury is a significant factor. Experienced supervisors know that side pull also presents a danger to the hoist itself, and to nearby auxiliary equipment. Understanding the risks involved in an unaligned lift has led many to investigate the Side Pull to reducing the risk of accident. Customers are impressed with the ease of use, particularly a user-friendly control system, a quick set modular design, the ability to set timers, and (of course!) the competitive price.
The Crane Sentry Side Pull uses eye-safe non-contact laser technology that can measure bays of up to 1,640 feet. The technology returns data to an easy to use, easy to read, industrial spec monitoring screen. It integrates well with existing fleets and drives.
