-ON-SITE SAFETY TAKEN TO NEW LEVELS WITH LAUNCH OF NEW SYSTEM

Feb 03, 2017 - ENP Newswire

JCB is launching a brand new safety system for its wheeled loaders which reduces the risk of on-site collisions between man and machine.

The JCB Proximity Braking System (PBS) ) - which has been developed in collaboration with FCC Environment (UK) - automatically sounds an alarm in the cab and applies the vehicle's brakes if a person enters a pre-set exclusion zone around the machine. In addition the system automatically puts the vehicle into neutral and applies the parking brake.
