Collision prevention with DISTER at container terminals
DISTER is a FMCW-Radar working in the frequency range from 24,00 – 24,250 GHz. The antenna characteristics is 11° (+/- 5,5°) vertical and horizontal. The device is able to detect moving and stationary objects up to a distance from 40m. The adjustable distance is in 1m steps from 4 to 40m. DISTER is a radar designed to prevent collisions and therefore to enhance safety.
At container terminal, it helps and assists crane or straddle carrier driver against collision accidents between STS’s or STS’s and Straddle Carriers ;
It helps to prevent accidents between yard cranes (RTG’s or RMGC’s) and vehicules (trucks or other vehicules).
Prevention of travel collision between Overhead Bridge cranes with DISTER
At industrial workshop, DISTER is used for anti-collision system between Overhead Bridge cranes travelling on the same runway.
