Configurable No-Fly Zone Systems

No-fly zones refer to protected areas where normal crane operation is limited or entirely restricted.

Depending on the application, no-fly zone systems can incorporate a variety of motion control products, including variable frequency drives, radio remote controls, limit switches, and sensors to designate locations where a crane is programmed to stop. These versatile systems—ranging from simple configurations to the more complex—can be added to existing crane controls or as new installations. Implementing no-fly zones limits the risk of collisions, increases safety for equipment and personnel, and improves facility throughput.

Configurable no-fly zone systems utilize laser positioning sensors installed on bridge/trolley motions that interface with controllers for functional customization. This system incorporates a simplified menu-driven operator interface accessed over a 2.4 or 5 GHz wireless connection via the use of a Personal Electronic Device (PED) such as a laptop, smartphone, or tablet. This operator interface provides flexibility to configure no-fly zones and enable or disable as changing process, plant, and crane conditions require. Configurable systems include a panel-mounted, key operated two-position enable/bypass switch that allows for manual crane operation if required.
