Wildeck makes safety sensor standard on vertical material lifts


Wildeck has made its proprietary AutoSenz technology standard on its mechanical and hydraulic Vertical Reciprocating Conveyor material lifts. The modular safety sensor, the AutoSenz M-Series, provides standard auto-ranging overload/VRC jam protection to minimize damage to material and equipment should items become jammed during the lifting operation. Existing mechanical and hydraulic VRCs also can be upgraded with an AutoSenz M-Series Retrofit Module.

AutoSenz also features a VRC service and maintenance reminder that can be programmed to appear on the display at specific service time intervals by the factory, the end-user or VRC service technician. Wildeck’s optional full-featured AutoSenz package – which provides a PLC with digital user interface, pushbutton controls, system diagnostics capabilities and the new VRC service/maintenance reminder – has been renamed the AutoSenz D-Series.
