Abstract (en)

The refuse is collected in large containers with two barriers, which are positioned on either side of the emptying device to secure the working area. A barrier monitor issues a signal to alter operation of the device, when one or both barriers (5a,b) are moved or removed. The monitor has sensors in the fastening area of the barriers, mounted on the collection container or behind the barrier retainer (11a,b). The sensor may be a proximity sensor, infrared sensor, or an electrical or mechanical switch. The monitor is connected to the hydraulic/pneumatic system of the emptying device.
