Impact Sensor - Forklift Monitoring and Access Control

Unauthorized or careless operation of material handling equipment creates unnecessary costs for your business. TotalTrax ImpactManager® monitors reduce damage-related costs and enable your business to operate more safely by controlling access, monitoring usage, and detecting impacts. TotalTrax provides three versions of ImpactManager — ImpactManager RF, ImpactManager ID, and ImpactManager SC — letting you choose the monitor with the access, impact, and usage features and capabilities that best meet your needs.


ImpactManager RF and ImpactManager ID

The TotalTrax ImpactManager RF and ImpactManager ID are access control-, impact-, and utilization-monitoring devices for material handling equipment. These products are designed to reduce damage-related expenses due to improper operation and create a safer work environment. When mounted to a forklift, the ImpactManager RF and ImpactManager ID detect impacts and record event details, such as date, time, and driver ID. The data is then transmitted wirelessly (for the RF) or downloaded manually through several user interface options. The devices also assist in controlling access by ensuring that only trained or certified drivers operate the equipment. The ImpactManager RF and ImpactManager ID software allow companies to customize equipment-operating parameters and generate reports and graphs for further analysis of driver safety, utilization, and maintenance schedules.

ImpactManager SC

The TotalTrax ImpactManager SC is an impact-detection device for forklifts and other material handling equipment. Mounted directly on the equipment, ImpactManager SC utilizes a patented and adjustable sensor that sounds an alarm upon any impact exceeding a pre-defined threshold. This immediate identification allows for more timely corrective action and reinforces safe operations. With ImpactManager SC in place, operators’ driving habits improve, which results in reduced damage to equipment, facilities, and products, as well as reduced costs.

  • Real-time impact detection through patented, user-adjustable sensors
  • 103 dB internal audible alarm or lift truck horn alarm option
  • Tamper-proof barrel lock enables and resets the unit
  • Test button for quick check of operational status
  • Easy installation with two mounting orientations — each product has two patented sensors mounted on different planes, with adjustable 360° plane of sensitivity.
  • Operational over a 10V to 60V DC range
  • UL rating — Type E, EE, G, GS, LP, LPS, D, and DS
  • Multiple product offerings — basic product is a battery-operated, self-contained unit

ImpactManager SC product options

The ImpactManager SC is available in the following models:

  • SC1000: The SC1000 is self-contained and does not require any wiring for installation. It has an internal audible alarm and 9V battery.

  • SC1040 : The SC1040 is powered by a 9V battery and allows integration of forklift accessories (such as horn and lighting) to alert supervisors when there is an impact.
  • SC1060 : The SC1060 is powered by the forklift battery and can activate the horn and lighting when there is an impact. This product is ideal in environments in which loud noise is a concern.
  • SC1080 :The SC1080 is powered by the forklift battery and uses a remote panel, which houses the keyswitch and test switch controls, for mounting within the vehicle.
  • All models can be mounted with a peel-off adhesive or with a bracket and screws.
