As part of the construction of a storage silo at the autonomous port of Jarry Baie-Mahault, in Guadeloupe, AMCS technologies equipped its first crane with a zoning device.
To ensure site safety while guaranteeing its productivity, AMCS technologies has fitted a Potain MD 175 tower crane with its DCS 60 system.
At the end of November 2019, it was the first time that one of the company's devices was installed on the island in order to manage prohibited overflight zones of the crane.
With a large network of dealer around the world, AMCS technologies now relies on its local representative, the company Karaibes Levage Services Technologies (KLST), to equip lifting machines in the Caribbean with anti-collision and zoning systems.
The goal of the company is to continue its commercial growth by developing a new area of activity.
The DCS 60 (Driving Control System), this anti collision system has demonstrated its efficiency, its robustness, its ease of installation and programming on many construction sites around the world (Dubaï Creek Harbor, the statue of Unity in India, Santiago Airport in Chile, Roland Garros in Paris, Vinci's head office in France, the Hinkley Point C nuclear power plant).
The system installed in Guadeloupe manages the prohibited overflight areas (for the load or the jib) and the crane's working space limitations. The device makes it possible to quickly create prohibited zones in 3 dimensions directly on the screen by associating geometric shapes with perimeters and / or static obstacles (building, schools, railways, etc.).
The system operates in real time and in 3-dimensions to calculate the distances between each crane component as well as movement speed. It enables action to be taken on equipped mechanisms to ensure complete immobilization of the crane at a pre-set distance from a particular obstacle.
