HoistCam Joins FLG Services and RaycoWylie at Vertikal Days & Intermat
FLG Services, a specialist division of A-Plant and a leading lifting equipment rental company operating in the UK, showed HC140, HC180, and HC190 cameras at Vertikal Days, held in Donington Park, UK in May. FLG Services represents HoistCam in the UK.
Recently FLG Services provided a HoistCam to VINCI Construction UK for use in conjunction with tower cranes on a highly congested construction project at the University of Bath’s main Claverton Down campus. “The HoistCam has proved to be a valuable piece of kit on this site due to the fact that space is so limited and the buildings have a complex shape with a restricted view for tower crane operators. It has given our crane operators clear vision of the blind loads being slung, thus enhancing safety,” said Alex Clements of VINCI Construction UK.
Rayco-Wylie Systems, based in Quebec City, Quebec, is a world leader in crane monitoring systems, including load indicators, range limiting devices, and weighing systems. HoistCam’s dealer for France and Canada showed the HC140 and HC180 cameras at Intermat, the international exhibition for construction and infrastructure, held in Paris, France in April. “Attendees were interested in the ability to record lifting activities with HoistCam Director, which can be referred to later if there is a problem during the lift,” said Jean Pierre Thomas of Rayco-Wylie.
Providing a centralized monitoring point, HoistCam Director is more than just a one-way camera system. A fully-integrated system allows construction owners and general contractors to view and manage hundreds of jobsites or equipment operations, improving productivity and safety. space is severely restricted.
HoistCam Director includes a mobile digital video recorder (MDVR) with 4 channel video input. Customizable alarms include geofencing, Shock/G-Sensor, temperature sensor, voltage output triggers, and RS485/RS232 monitoring. Two licensing options provide users with flexibility depending on the size and scope of the project. A Basic License allows for one concurrent user and MDVR at no additional cost. An Enterprise License supports multiple concurrent users, MDVRs and remote access to recordings.
Among the benefits for project managers is the ability to align written assignments with current real-time visual comparisons of the job progression, manage work flow and share information within the organization or with various subcontractors. Operations managers or CEOs can increase productivity and profits by deploying or re-deploying personnel or equipment assets based on real-time needs. Risk managers can quickly assess operations to reduce opportunities for accidents or retrieve archived data following an accident for efficient incident investigation.
HoistCam™, a rapidly deployable wireless camera system, places the eyes of the crane operator anywhere on the job. The HoistCam platform suite provides remote monitoring, recording and management analytics reporting to operators and site supervisors.
