Most of these accidents could have been avoided with a Orlaco Camera Solution
The viewing problem
Safety is becoming an ever increasing aspect in the industry. All new earth moving machinery has to as of the 1st of December 2008 comply with the ISO 5006 standards. The driver of a large earth moving machinery vehicle has very little visibility of the area around his vehicle. The blind spot areas to the front and rear of the vehicle are the most dangerous areas. The ISO 5006 standards state that the area of up to one metre around the entire vehicle as well as the area of one and a half metres above the vehicle must be visible to the driver.
Presenting the launch of the new innovative AMOS cameras and the new 12" monitor!
A crystal-clear view around all machines, vehicles and vessels in any situation. Increased safety, efficiency, damage reduction and comfort. This is Orlaco's mission, which is why Orlaco continues to innovate, develop technologies and improve its visibility solutions. The result is the launch of three new innovative products. These are the AMOS camera, the AMOS IR LED camera and the 12” monitor.
In addition to the AMOS camera, Orlaco also introduces the AMOR IR LED camera. This camera, which is based on the AMOS camera, is fitted with an adapted lens and fifteen infrared LEDs. The infrared LEDs are activated depending on the amount of surrounding light. The AMOS IR LED camera provides detailed images, day and night. This technology makes this camera system suitable for military appliactions.
The new 12" monitor replaces the 10" monitor. The 12" monitor has a modern appearance and is water and dust-proof. The monitor comes with a new power supply/video cable, making assembly easier and providing a waterproof connection with the monitor. With the 12" monitor you have the option of viewing two images at the same time. This feature is called PIP, which stands for Picture In Picture. You can for instance show one camera full screen and the second camera as a small image in the top left. The position and size of the PIP can be adjusted as you wish. The monitor is exchangeable with existing Orlaco monitors.
Criteria: this red line must be clearly visible to the driver.
