  • Anti-Collision Assistant ACA

    Anti-Collision Assistant ACA

    With the assistance system ACA the maneuvering of Orbiter conveyor belt vehicles is reliably secured while loading and unloading aircraft. It helps to prevent damage to the aircraft, which can cause unnecessary costs at the expense of economic feasibility of operations. The efficiency and flexibility of our Orbiter conveyor belt vehicles is still the same.

    In the development of the Anti-Collision Assistant ACA value was set to close cooperation with users. Together with our engineers it was accomplished to design a security system that effectively supports the operator in his work.

    Overview of the ACA approaching zones

    • Zone 4
      • The assistance system doesn‘t have to be activated outside the safety zone
      • No speed reduction
      • No detection of obstacles because of deactivation
      • All control systems are disabled, no signals
    • Zone 3
      • Activation by pushing a control button or by lifting the belt body
      • Immediate reduction in speed to walking speed
      • Safe approach through lowering the vehicle speed
      • Activation is indicated by optical signal
    • Zone 2
      • The assistance system is active
      • The speed is reduced to creeping speed
      • Recognition of obstacles on ultrasonic sensors leads to a complete stop
      • Activation is signaled visually and acoustically
    • Zone 1
      • The assistance system is active
      • The drive forward is stopped, the parking brake is applied
      • The belt functions „Lift Front“ and „Lift/Lower Rear“ are now being blocked
      • Activation is signaled visually and acoustically

    Zone 0 – contact with the collision protector

    In case of contact of the rubber wheels, which are serving as collision protectors, with the aircraft the forward drive is stopped immediately, the parking brake is applied and the belt functions „Lift Front“ and „Lift/Lower Rear“ are being locked. The rear-wheel drive and the „Lower Front“ function is available at any time without restriction.
