Cabin doors and seat belt are essential safety system to limit the risk of injury during machine tramming phases.
In order to insure these safety elements are operational;, means cabin doors are closed and safety belt is locked, the Sandvik Doors and Safety Belt Interlock System can be added on your underground drills.
With the Sandvik Doors and Safety Belt Interlock System, the park brake release is prevented if both cabin doors are not closed and safety belt is not locked.
Furthermore, if during machine’s tramming phase, the doors are opened or seat belt unlocked, a strong alarm will sound, forcing the operator to stop the machine and solving the issue.
The brakes are NOT automatically applying if, during machine’s tramming phase, the doors are opened or seat belt unlocked, as sudden automatic braking causes an additional risk to a person who does not wear a seat belt.
The Doors and Safety Belt Interlock System retrofit kit is delivered with all needed parts including, switches, brackets, electric wiring, operator manual update, etc.
