Forklift Alert™ is Miltronics’ new patent pending solution for improving facility safety through a proximity awareness warning system for pedestrians encountering forklift activity in a warehouse environment.
The unit is a transmitter mounted on a forklift that emits a high frequency radio signal detected by a receiver, which sounds out to warn surrounding pedestrians. The transmitter operates on the forklift power supply and is easily installed by maintenance personnel. The receiver is wall mounted in areas where pedestrian traffic occurs. When the receiver detects a forklift in the vicinity, a warning indicator lets pedestrians in the area know that an operating forklift in close by.
