AutoSenz® Safety Systems

Thu, 09/16/2010 - 6:43am
AutoSenz® technology is now standard on its mechanical and hydraulic VRCs. The company’s new modular safety sensor -- the WildeckAutoSenz® M-Series -- is now a part of the VRC’s control system, providing standard auto-ranging overload/VRC jam protection that will minimize damage to material and equipment if items become jammed during the lifting operation.  Existing mechanical and hydraulic VRCs can also be upgraded with an AutoSenz® M-Series Retrofit Module, adding a new level of safety and security on installed units.

In addition, the original AutoSenz® design for mechanical VRCs has been enhanced to incorporate a VRC service and maintenance reminder.  The new feature can be programmed to appear on the display at specific service time intervals by the factory, the end-user, or VRC service technician.  Additionally, it provides a PLC with digital user interface, easy-to-use pushbutton controls, and a complete system diagnostics capability. The optional full-featured AutoSenz® package has been renamed the AutoSenz® D-Series.

AutoSenzBoth AutoSenz® VRC safety systems automatically sense motor load current and determine the critical overload set point each time the VRC motor starts, and the overload detection systems are designed to stop the VRC in its tracks and alert the operator so corrective action can be taken if jams occur.
