The Lift Guard™ Contact Alarm is designed to alert ground personnel when an operator makes contact with the platform control panel, interrupting boom movement, sounding an alarm and flashing a warning light. The system is designed to be unobtrusive, featuring a activation cable fitted above the boom lift’s control panel. When the activation cable is tripped, the lift and drive functions are disabled at the platform. Then audio and visual warnings will activate alerting others that assistance may be needed. These notifications will continue until the system is reset — simply click the activation cable back into place.
