V-TRAX

Automatic steering for RTGs

Effective Automated Steering for reduced equipment operating costs


V-TRAX is a passive automated steering system and is a cost-effective solution to automatically steer an RTG crane along a container stack runway.


V-TRAX automatically and accurately steers the equipment along a virtual track along the runway, preventing equipment and container collisions and subsequent damage. V-TRAX improves terminal safety and operator productivity, reducing fatigue and equipment maintenance.


Designed to retrofit to existing equipment as well as be installed on new, the V-TRAX system is not tied to any particular crane or control package manufacturer, providing you the freedom to select the most cost effective materials handling equipment supplier for your operation and not be compelled to stay with the same manufacturer for your future requirements


Ease of Operation


With years of RTG experience ITS have developed simple to use interfaces making the V-TRAX system easy to set up and configure.  The runway map can be quickly and automatically uploaded to each item of equipment using an existing wireless LAN or manually using a USB memory stick if a LAN is not available.


Safe Operation


V-TRAX has a number of in-built safety devices to provide fail-safes to avoid collisions. The operator has full override control allowing manual steer at any time.  Clear signalling and audible warnings are provided to inform and advise. At all times the operator knows what the system is doing and who is steering, V-TRAX or the operator.

V-TRAX Automatic Steering


Designed to retrofit to existing equipment as well as install on new, the V-TRAX system is not tied to any particular crane or control package manufacturer, or owned by a competing terminal operator or stevedore. This independence gives you the freedom to select the most cost effective materials handling equipment supplier for your operation and not be compelled to stay with the same manufacturer for your future requirements. It provides you with the ability to install on any drives and control package, and ensures continuity of system supply if you elect to buy your handling equipment from multiple vendors.
