In the first few weeks of this new year there still seem to be many questions and challenges ahead, but we also feel extremely proud to have overcome an exceedingly difficult 2020. We are leaving behind a year no one could have imagined it would be that hard and complex, a year that changed our routines, that put us to the test and impacted us all very closely one way or another. A year, however, that also helped us to learn, to appreciate the importance of being united and to show care and concern for those around us.

Now, as we begin a new year, we consider it important look at the positive side of what we left behind and review some of the achievements of the team at Claitec:

First, in 2020 we were able to develop some highly innovative systems with great contribution to occupational safety, such as the Crossing Guard, a device that gets installed in the upper areas of a warehouse to help avoid collisions at intersections.

Similarly, the VAS System, an innovative system that warns pedestrians and/or forklift drivers in risk situations by projecting signals on the ground. These are just two of the many innovations developed by Claitec.

In addition, we also developed the new PAS Plug & Play System (Connection Box), an evolution of the classic PAS System with the main novelty being that the entire system works with connectors and it is extremely easy to install. This system also includes the so-called Connection Box, a tool that allows to feed and interconnect different Claitec solutions, such as the PAS and CAS-G2, as well as to associate and configure different alert elements such as a pilot light, buzzer or signal Slow Down.

Then, and considering the multiple challenges posed by the pandemic, we are also proud that we were able to respond with tools tailored to these very specific needs. For example, we devised the TAG T-10R SD (Social Distance sensor), based on our T-10R system, but modifying it to alert workers when the programmed safety distance between people working in the same room is not respected. We also shared multiple recommendations to maintain hygiene and health in workspaces.

Thus, thanks to your trust, and thanks to the conviction that we were able to achieve great progress working together, we have gone through and overcome an extremely difficult year, and we are now ready to build a great 2021 together. We are 100% sure that by being together and taking care each other, we can overcome any challenge.

So, cheers! For all our achievements and for everything that lies ahead!

On behalf of the entire Claitec team, we wish you a great 2021!

At Claitec we know that the best way to manage a period of uncertainty such as the current one is to pause, take a deep breath, and to clearly define where you want to go. And that is exactly what we have done.

It has been an unusual year in every way, but we have decided to make the most from all the lessons learns.

The result has been an increased focus on human talent.

That’s why we are very happy to end this 2020 expanding our team with two new members: Marc in the R&D department and Sergi in the production department.

Sergi sepecialises in the maintenance of electronic equipment. He brings professionalism in repair tasks, process planning, and security protocols ensuring quality, functionality, and respect for the environment. He defines himself as passionate about electronics, a dynamic and responsible person who tries to combine work with CrossFit and trail running.

Marc is a computer engineer and passionate about cybersecurity. He likes to work as a Full Stack Developer and believes in the importance of understanding the entire flow of a computer system from the hardware, the front-end, the back-end, networks, etc. Besides all the time dedicated to cybersecurity, Marc also finds time to go to the gym and play video games, especially his favourite – League of Legends.

Welcome to the team!

We all know that intersections in warehouses are high risk places where occupational safety problems, collisions or similar accidents take place frequently. In this post, we will be discussing the many benefits of the Crossing Guard system, an innovative solution currently generating tremendous results in the prevention of accidents in industries.

The Crossing Guard is installed in the upper areas of a warehouse to help prevent collisions at intersections. Specifically, the operation of this device is based on the cargo vehicle or the operator approaching the intersection area receiving visual alerts from the traffic lights and the image shown by the VAS projector, indicating whether they have permission to cross or otherwise, thus providing further safety information for the user to make a decision that can help him or her prevent an accident.

This solution – developed by Claitec at the express request of one of our clients – borrows some of the elements already present on the market, while incorporating a series of unique developments and innovations from our own company with the goal of achieving a product that really makes a difference in terms of improving job safety levels.

The Crossing Guard device uses radar technology capable of differentiating persons from vehicles and identifying whether a forklift is approaching an intersection or if it is moving away from it. With this modern technology, it is no longer necessary for operators or vehicles to carry a device to be detected since the system locates them on its own.

This is also a programmable system which can not only be configured to suit the client’s needs – the VAS System and several other of our systems such as the PAS and the CAS-G2 can also be incorporated into the Crossing Guard.

A device which also stands out for:

  • Its robust aluminium structure.
  • Mounting height of 3 to 7 meters.
  • Its extremely easy handling even at a height.
  • A maximum detection speed of 25 km/h for vehicles.

In addition, the innovative separation fins of the equipment’s design allow no more than one traffic light to be seen from each angle, in such a way as not to generate confusion. It is easily prepared to be hung by tensioners or using a support with VESA standard holes.

Several models of the Crossing Guard are available, either with Bluespot or with the VAS System which comes in 2, 3 and 4 faces with traffic lights. Our team will gladly recommend which one of these best suits the needs of your workspace.

As you’re probably aware of, the Tag T-10R is the last step in the T-10 Tag evolution.

As such, it  presents several improvements over its previous version, including:

  • Range radius’ better performance
  • Ease of detection
  • Month-long autonomy battery with wireless recharging capabilities.

All of these features have been designed to make your daily tasks a lot easier.

Our customers see wireless charging and extensive battery life as a great ally to achieving more effective and productive days in their workplaces. This is because, although the average battery life ranges may vary, they are always around the 30 to 50 days mark – when fully charging in 4 hours and withstanding up to 500 cycles of full charges.

In a warehouse or chain production situation, the average life expectancy for the tag’s battery intensively being used every day  is about 30 days. In the case of a forklift driver or pedestrian with a similiarly intensive use of the tag, the estimated average duration is 40 days. And finally, for an office user who might only use the tag when visiting the warehouse, the average battery life is 50 days.

In other words: great autonomy and practicality!

Functionalities

It’s also important to highlight that the T-10R Tag features high-intensity LED lighting, which helps with rapid detection and visibility of the person wearing the tag. The light it generates has a 360º angle so it can be perceived from all the surroundings in which it is located providing more safety to the work space and helping prevent accidents at work.

In addition, the tag has a vibration system, which is incorporated as a new alert route for operators in the presence of another person or vehicle. It also generates a high intensity audible warning, completing a wide range of alert forms which considerably assist in improving safety in the industry.

The T-10R Tag also stands out because is extremely resistant, making it an ideal component to be used in industries and work areas where operators coexist with cargo vehicles and large machinery.

The Pedestrian Alert System (PAS) is designed to warn forklift drivers when a person at adjustable distances of 1 to 6.5 meters is detected. It is a unique system with the capacity to distinguish between people and objects. It can even detect operators located behind a wall or a shelf!

In addition, the PAS System is one of our clients’ favourite solutions, having already contributed significantly to the improvement of occupational safety and the reduction of occupational accidents in many workplaces. That’s why in this post we’d like to list three key reasons that make this an essential element in any industry.

1) Excellent results:

The PAS System is a fundamental component of any workspace because it minimises the number of accidents, it reduces the risk of workers being run over and it creates work environments that are much safer and more efficient for everyone. It also complements very easily with other safety systems, thus providing a very wide range of safety responses and measures.

2) A point of reference:

The coexistence of pedestrians and forklifts is an issue that all industries must attend to, and where historically there have been more problems and a high rate of occupational accidents. In that sense, the PAS System has established itself as a reference solution to such challenges, and its impact on the reduction of accidents at work and the improvement of safety is proven in the market.

3) It complements other safety systems

The PAS System also stands out because it easily integrates with other systems, making it a versatile tool capable of adapting to provide more solutions. For example, there is the possibility of combining the PAS System with the VAS System, as some of our clients have done, obtaining great results. Similarly, the PAS System can be used to improve safety in crane bridges.

In this post we’d like to introduce you to three of the tools we at Claitec consider to be essential in any port area.

Their performance, durability and robustness make these tools especially useful for assisting the operators and forklifts that load and unload cargo in port areas and large docks.

  1. The TDS (Truck Docking System) Solution minimises the risk of vehicles running over operators in unloading docks. By means of a traffic light, this system warns drivers when operators are present in nearby spaces.

    For the operation of the TDS Solution the dock must be equipped with detection sensors, which verify the presence of an operator and emit the warning signal to the traffic light, thereby removing the danger and reducing accidents at work. It is a very easy to install solution, which also stands out for the durability and robustness of the devices that make up the system.


  2. The PAS (Pedestrian Alert System) warns forklift drivers when a person is detected in adjustable distances of 1 to 6.5 meters.

    The PAS is a unique system capable of differentiating people and objects. It even detects operators behind a wall or a bookcase. In a port area or on a loading dock – where there’s usually a lot of traffic and a large flow of operators in common spaces – this tool becomes extremely helpful in preventing accidents and improving safety.

  3. The CAS-G2 collision avoidance system: this electronic safety development is an evolution of Claitec’s CAS system and it warns forklift drivers when it detects other cargo vehicles in nearby and hazardous areas.

    The CAS-G2 tool is presented as a perfect support system for drivers working in port areas or large loading docks. It provides drivers a lot more information about the space through which they circulate, helping them prevent risks and make better decisions in the operation and handling of loads.

The VAS (The Visual Alert System) solution is an innovative system that warns pedestrians and / or forklifts in risk situations by projecting signals on the ground. This modern system has been achieving great results and is highly requested by our customers for their work spaces.

This solution – which consists of warning projections on the ground as those seen in the video -, is highly innovative and makes a real difference when organising the traffic of pedestrians and forklifts in our industries.

We have seen time and time again that the implementation of this solution in a workspace considerably reduces the number of occupational accidents, it alerts operators and it keeps them informed about situations that require attention more efficiently than other solutions.


It’s important to remember that the projector’s lenses can come in either one, two or three colours and the projected symbol is customisable. Some examples of what can be projected are:

  • A forklift.
  • A pedestrian.
  • A STOP warning sign.
  • A crosswalk.
  • A speed limit sign.
  • A “no smoking” notice or an indication that mobile use is prohibited.
  • Among many other options…


This system stands out over other warning and signalling options because:

  • It is easier to visualise and therefore more effective. Ground projections have better visibility than those projected at height.
  • They are more efficient than panoramic mirrors. When the projector emits its signal on the ground it’s easier to get people’s attention.
  • It provides a much more direct and easy warning to workers, who can circulate more safely.

There are other advantages to the VAS system which we highlighted in this recent article.  

The many benefits of this system are the reason why more and more customers choose to have this tool installed in their workplaces.

One of the aspects our customers tend to value most from our range of safety tools is their ability to be combined and integrated into their daily work to achieve much more efficient and safe processes that greatly impact the reduction of occupational accidents.

In this regard, today we’d like to talk about four different solutions that work in perfect harmony to improve the operation and safety in heavy machinery entry and exit spaces in our industries.

  1. Solución TCS (Traffic Control System). This solution issues a proper warning when pedestrians enter the heavy machinery transit zone. Ideal for separating operators from trucks/forklifts, Through the use of traffic lights, signalling beacons, safety gates and railings, drivers and operators can be notified of each other’s presence so as to prevent accidents.

  2. TDS Solution (Truck Docking System). A tool specially designed to assist drivers, particularly during loading and unloading manoeuvres at the docks. This solution takes into account the intense work dynamics in these spaces and stands out for its durability and resistance, having achieved very good results among our clients.

  3. LSA Solution. A tool designed to limit vehicle speed in cargo spaces and, consequently, to help prevent accidents. The LSA Solution is an electronic system specially designed to complement the safety tools of cargo vehicles and to reduce their speed in areas where operators or other pedestrians appear on foot. It is certainly of key importance in spaces where there’s a lot of movement as those mentioned.

  4. And finally, Collision avoidance system (CAS-G2). A state-of-the-art tool that adapts perfectly to heavily trafficked spaces and serves to reduce accidents caused by collisions of cargo vehicles. It is a driver support system that provides more information about the space through which it circulates, and it allows the person in charge of the vehicle to know where other trucks/forklifts are located.

Do you have any questions? Specific inquiries? Would you like to find out more about these or solutions?
