Date: 01-06-2018 / Author: kscally

MEC introduced the Proactive Platform Safety System (PPSS) for select slab scissor lifts, designed to alert MEC scissor lift operators of overhead hazards in order to avoid collision and entrapment.

PPSS works by projecting a “cone” of safety through ultrasonic sensor to detect objects above the machine operator. The sensor begins detecting obstacles 12 ft. above the platform floor. An alarm will sound when an object is identified within the cone, and the frequency of beeps will increase as the object gets closer.
