  • Used to change the traffic lights when vehicles are close to the loading bay to indicate the correct reversed position, helping to eliminate damage and improve safety.
  • The TDL-5 emits an infrared signal and detects when the signal is returned / bounced back. It is generally recommended to fit this inside a dock shelter so that the signal is reflected from the side of the vehicle.
  • The TDL-5-REF detects when an infrared signal is broken between the sensor and the reflector fitted to the opposite side of the loading dock.
  • Can be used with any Thorworld traffic lights.
