FMS-cradleGUARD – Reliable safety-monitoring of all cradles

  • Reliable transmission of time and safety critical signals
  • Explicit text messages on which cradle the fault lies, safes time and money
  • Compact package, no slip-rings required, battery life of several months, optional 24 VDC
  • 3 independent inputs for pintle lock status, wire break detection, cradle tilt switch, etc.

The FMS-cradleGUARD Telemetry System was developed to improve safety and decrease downtime on older machinery. The current use of slip rings to obtain signals relating to the pintle lock status and cradle tilt are maintenance intensive and with the limited information provided contribute to production downtime. They are more frequently a source of error rather than a contribution to machine safety! With the FMS-cradleGUARD, the safety relevant signals are transmitted directly from the payoff cradle to the operator’s station. The explicit indication of the faulty cradle allows for fast, reliable trouble shooting, and therefore the ability to put the machine back into production as quickly as possible. Industrially proven, rechargeable batteries and chargers power the transmitting module on the machine.
