With forklift operational safety coming under ever-increasing scrutiny, RDS Technology has recently seen a high level of interest in the Speed and Distance 200 vehicle monitor.
The Speed and Distance 200 is a cost-effective and versatile instrument for logging occurrences of the vehicle travelling in excess of site speed restrictions. Normally powered through the vehicle ignition and therefore switched on at the same time the vehicle is, it works on an input signal from a magnetic sensor on the non-driven or transmission shaft. For driver warning it has a visual and an internal audible alarm to alert the driver to speed when the pre-set speed limit is exceeded - a further external alarm is optional. This gives forklift operators full information on their vehicle speed and allows them to operate safely within speed restrictions.
