slab scissor lift

GMG’s Ramp Control reduces concerns of an over-speed condition during a slab scissor lift's descent on a ramp. It automatically places the machine in low speed (Turtle Mode) if the machine is going downhill until the operator turns it off after returning to a flat surface. It controls the descent without affecting gradeability by understanding the position of the platform, the angle degree of the ramp; direction of the machine on the ramp; and position of the joystick.

New MEC Safety System Alerts Scissor Lift Operators to Overhead Hazards

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.
