RCT Muirhead Speed Gates

Wednesday, 12 August, 2020 | Supplied by: RCT


Smart technology company RCT’s Muirhead Speed Gates are designed to ensure all industrial vehicles — such as forklifts and reach trucks — are travelling at an appropriate speed for their surroundings.

The systems are easily deployed at entrances/exits and designated points within warehouses and other materials handling facilities and cap maximum speeds on any piece of industrial equipment passing through the portal.

A worksite may be set up to cover up to four safe speeds per site so the materials handling equipment can only travel at designated speeds through specific areas such as yards, racking aisles, calm zones (pedestrian areas) or under awnings.

The Speed Gate system consists of a gate that is to be located above entrances/exits which communicates with a machine location tag mounted on or close to the roof or falling object protective structure (FOPS) of a forklift.

The machine location tag then communicates with a Muirhead Speed Limiter to manage the speed of the forklift depending on the specific location it is traversing through onsite. Additionally, depending on machine type, Speed Gates may be able to interface directly with OEM speed limiting features.

Simple to install, the system requires no ongoing maintenance and can be applied to any type of materials handling equipment regardless of manufacturer. It is suitable for large and small sites that operate mixed fleets.
