APS Resource (Mequon, WI) has introduced its S.W.A.T. (Secondary Warning Alert Technology) module, which adds an extra layer of protection for dock operations by visually alerting workers to use caution anytime there is a change in dock status. The first of its kind the material handling industry, the S.W.A.T. module is designed to work in combination with a dock’s LED dock light and vehicle restraint. When the vehicle restraint indicates a change in dock status, the S.W.A.T. module flashes the interconnected dock light at a rate of 30 flashes per minute (fpm). Features include:
• A compact design, to minimize risk of damage.
• A polymer housing that resists corrosion.
• Easy mounting on a loading dock wall next to the vehicle restraint control panel.
• An LED status light to indicate receptacle output status.
