The IMS2100 is a real time Impact Monitoring System for use on forklifts and other materials handling equipment.

The IMS2100 was designed to reduce the operational costs incurred by damage sustained by harsh operator use and accidents.

The IMS2100 monitors and records operator activity and will sound an internal alarm when a forklift comes into contact with another forklift, storage racking, pallatised goods or other physical objects that would either be damaged or damage the forklift truck. The impact host software can send email alerts to warehouse managers including impact log data and can be accessed using a standard web browser or the IMS host software on your local area network.

The IMS2100 has been proven to reduce forklift damage and therefore significantly reduce operational costs.

Features Benefits
Real time notification via wireless LAN Enables warehouse managers to address incidents as they occur
Uses electronic impact measuring technology Reduces false alerts and triggers reliably where mechanical sensors continually fail
Improves OH&S compliance Improves driver and pedestrian safety
Record impacts by date, time, driver ID Reduces racking and product damage
Audible alarm Sounds an alarm to immediately make driver aware of an impact
Multi-voltage operation Operates on a wide range of vehicles without ancillary power converters
Cold store version For continuous operation at -30ºC
Driver identification option via access cards into forklifts ignition system Allows full control of forklift access and identify operator by enabling only authorised users to activate forklifts
