Comatra blue light pedestrian safety system

blue light safety system

This system is designed to make pedestrians aware of an approaching forklift truck especially those persons at the rear of the truck.

The sad fact is that more than half of all forklift accidents in the UK are due to lack of observation by the operator and this is particularly true when the truck is reversing. Even during a forklift truck practical test operators often fail to look behind when reversing.

In the Comatra system there are a series of LED lights fitted to the rear of the truck which shine an intense blue light onto the floor behind the forklift truck.

Some technical aspects of the Comatra system are:

  • Maintenance free up to 20,000 hours
  • IP68 protection against dust and water
  • 11-100 V DC (Amp draw @ 12V : 1.55 A / 18.6W)
  • Pre-wired 1.0 m cable with Deutsch® connector included
