The Si-1 Tilt monitor is a purpose designed and built audio visual warning device that can be either retrofitted or used on new off-highway machines such as commercial mowers, site dumpers, road sweepers, excavators and other machines where there is a risk of the machine overturning on gradients.
Comprising an integrated dual axis tilt sensor, the Emolice Si-1 is a slope indicator that measures the operating angle (inclination or tilt) of the machine in realtime for both pitch (front to back) and roll (side to side). The realtime tilt measurement is shown on two high intensity LCD screens that are visible in both low light and bright light conditions.
Designed to be configured at the time of installation, the Emolice Si-1 is programmed with the maximum operating angle of the machine. The maximum working angle and all of the other Si-1 settings cannot be changed by the operator. Whilst the machine is in use, the operator will receive a visual (orange LED) warning when the operating angle of the machine reaches 75% of the maximum working angle. When the maximum working angle of the machine is exceeded, the operator receives an audible alarm and visual (red LED) warning. Additionally the optional relay can be triggered to allow power to be disconnected from any attachments or accessories, or alternatively to provide power to external accessories such as external lights, horns or LED displays.
For machines where remote angle measurement is required (for example articulated machines) the Emolice Si-1 offers an external sensor option allowing the tilt sensing to be performed remotely from the Slope Indicator.
An automatic self test at power up ensures that all visual and audible indications are working which helps owners and operators ensure compliance with the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) 1998. Additionally, the Emolice Si-1 incorporates a 10-30V DC Protection Circuit to protect from voltages spikes as high as +60V and negative voltages as low as –40V. Finally, the device and all of its’ connections are protected to IP66 for outside use in all weather conditions which also allows the Si-1 to remain mounted to the machine during power washing, cleaning and maintenance operations.
