The company, specialized in anti-collision safety systems for lifting equipment will reveal its latest innovations on booth F101211. Visitors will have the opportunity to discover several world previews on AMCS technologies along with its local dealer in the United States, Finnco Services.

Latest innovations by AMCS technologies

DCS 61-S - Driving Control System Safety
Among the novelties expected in 2020, will be DCS 61-S, (Driving Control System Safety), the new anti-collision and zoning system now available for international marketing. As a complete safety system, it is designed to ensure safe execution of orders to manage the machines in interefernce operating in the area of the tower cranes. The device is in the process of being certified PLd in accordance with the standard EN13849-1 and SIL-2 in accordance with the standard EN61508 by an accredited organization.

Latest innovations by AMCS technologies
Operating on many sites in France, the DCS 61-S can detect in real time the risk of collision of all crane elements in interference (for example cable on jib, cable on counter-jib) or the risk of entering a prohibited area (schools, railways, roads, etc). It intervenes on the controlled mechanisms of the machine to ensure a slowdown and / or a complete immobilization of the lifting machine at a pre-set distance from the obstacle. The system provides the crane operator with working comfort by displaying all the parameters useful for operating the machine and allows him to program delivery zones and targets more intuitively. It also gives the possibility of viewing in real time the position of the crane in its environment as well as the positions of the interfering cranes while guaranteeing high performance on site productivity.

IoT Lifting mobile application
The company will preview its own telematics called IoT Lifting with its mobile application which will be available during the second quarter of 2020. The DCS 61-S anti-collision systems can be equipped with a SIM card that can be used to collect precise data on each crane on a web portal (when the crane is powered, in motion, in weathervane, etc) and generate personalized statistics for each job site and companies (occupancy rate, load, efficiency, interference etc). The main objectives of the IoT Lifting are to follow the productivity of the construction site with precision and remotely, and to know the activity of the cranes every day.

The IoT Lifting mobile application (available internationally on Android and Apple Stores) will guarantee the productivity and safety of cranes equipped with anti-collision systems DCS 61-S. Each client can:
  • Monitor in real time the states (weathervane, neutralization, fault, wind speed, cuts etc) of its DCS 61-S anti-collision systems on each of its sites.
  • Receive notifications on the status of its DCS 61-S systems.
  • Neutralize the function(s) (anti-collision, prohibited areas) in complete safety.

SUP BIM – Supervision Tool
A job site supervisor with BIM option, the SUP BIM will be marketed early 2020 in France and abroad. This supervision tool makes it possible to follow the progress and production of the site in real time. This is recreated virtually by integrating the real types, brands and models of cranes on the site plan and in its real environment (buildings, road, location etc.) taking into account the digital models of buildings under construction in BIM format.

For a better understanding of the project throughout its life cycle, it allows you to visualize the evolution of the site and its facilities as it progresses. It also provides statistics on the data collected by the DCS 60 or DCS 61-S anti-collision system installed on the crane (rate of use of the crane under load, empty, interference rate etc).

A data logger function makes it possible to consult the history of the data for each machine and to download them to a USB key (slewing, height of the hook, position of the machine on the translation railway etc). The user can also view and record the wind speed data for each crane equipped with an AMCS technologies anemometer sensor. An additional function allows the management of overflight limitations selectively by neutralizing directly on the screen one or more prohibited overfly areas. The supervisor can be consulted from one or more computers, tablets or smartphones with a simple internet connection.

These products illustrate the company's ability to keep up with market developments, whether it is new standards, new generations of cranes, innovations and technological advances in the industry. On the AMCS technologies booth, the focus is on new technologies for the safety and performance of the company's new products and tools.
