JLG's Enhanced Detection System (EDS) uses ultrasonic technology to sense when an object is nearby. The system first slows then stops a machine before it makes contact.
Strategically-placed object detection sensors heighten operator awareness of the immediate surroundings. When the machine is in use, sensors establish warning zones and stop distances in the machine’s direction of motion. Both visual and audio alerts inform the operator when the boom or scissor lift approaches a structure.
The user has the option to override the system to inch closer to the adjacent structure when required to complete the work at height.
