The greatest concern on a coal storage pile is the potential danger of the dozer falling into the feeder cavity. At that critical moment, the dozer operatorís safety and protection depends on how fast the feeder can be stopped and emergency personnel alerted. Until now, the operator usually had only a CB or handheld radio to summon help.
If the signal didnít get through, quite possibly nobody would even be aware of the situation.
But it doesnít have to be that way anymore! Now from the cab of the dozer, and with a single push of a button, the feeder can be stopped and personnel alerted by the fail-safe
Air-Eagleģ Wireless Stop Switch. Featuring a full duplex (handshake) link with an operating range of 3000 feet or more, the
Air-Eagle redefines safety on coal storage piles. Should a dozer start to fall into a cavity, not only can the feeder be stopped with the push button, it will automatically stop if the handshake is broken due to signal loss or power failure.
Air-Eagle continuously monitors up to eight dozers simultaneously with a clear frequency auto-scanning signal that cannot be blocked or jammed. Integral high current relays allow direct interfacing with other equipment and devices, while 2.4GHz spread-spectrum technology ensures the utmost in security and reliability. When the operator logs-on to the system, on-board LEDs at both ends of the link verify the handshake has been established, giving a sense of confidence and trust to the operator and all other involved personnel.
