DROMONE is delighted to announce that our new HAL (Hitched & Locked) Pick-Up Hitch system has been awarded the 2020 Farm Safety Enterprise Ireland Innovation Award. Enterprise Ireland’s Innovation Arena showcases ground-breaking Agri-related products and innovations from Irish Agri-companies at the National Ploughing Championships.
The DROMONE HAL system is the first pick-up hitch with an in-cab alert system to ensure safe coupling. It is an electronic monitoring system that provides positive confirmation that the trailer has been hitched safely and the locking mechanisms have engaged. The pick-up hitch has integrated rugged sensors and a control box providing an audible and visual signal to the cab. Unlike conventional indicators that can show a false positive, the HAL system uses multiple sensors to reliably alert the operator of a unhitched and unlocked pickup hitch.
The HAL project is aligned with our mission of maximising safety and productivity to our customers. The objective of this project is to develop a platform that will enable DROMONE to provide higher value-added technology solutions for agriculture pick-up hitches.
