AMCS technologies on a construction site in Abu Dhabi

AMCS technologies DCS 60 anti collision and zoning system equips twenty tower cranes participating in the Las Island project in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Among the twenty machines, there are sixteen Potain MCT205, two MC175 and two Raimondi MRT294.

The DCS 60 operates in real time and in 3-dimensions to calculate the distances between each crane component as well as movement speed. It enables action to be taken on equipped mechanism to ensure complete immobilization of the crane at a pre-set distance from a particular obstacle.
