AMCS technologies installs first DCS 60 system in Guadeloupe
As part of the construction of a storage silo at the autonomous port of Jarry Baie-Mahault in Guadeloupe, AMCS technologies has fitted a Potain MD 175 tower crane with its DCS 60 anti-collision and zoning system.
The system installed in Guadeloupe manages the prohibited overflight areas (for the load or the jib) and the crane's working space limitations. The device makes it possible to quickly create prohibited zones in three dimensions directly on the screen by associating geometric shapes with perimeters or static obstacles, such as buildings, schools and railways. The system operates in real time and in three dimensions to calculate the distances between each crane component as well as movement speed. It enables action to be taken on equipped mechanisms to ensure complete immobilisation of the crane at a pre-set distance from a particular obstacle.
The DCS 60 (Driving Control System) has already demonstrated its efficiency, robustness and ease of programming on many construction sites around the world, such as Dubaï Creek Harbour, the statue of Unity in India, Santiago Airport in Chile, Roland Garros in Paris, Vinci's head office in France and the Hinkley Point C nuclear power plant.
