Our work around overhead cranes has seen us co-develop and implement our DT Digital Trident system onto cranes at multiple client sites. We have further developed this knowledge to produce the DT Smart Access System.


Crane safety systems: DT Engineering have researched, developed and manufactured a bespoke crane user protection system and crane intelligence solutions which provide total operator protection whilst using the crane as well as real time reporting to a remote location, on criteria set by the client and offering complex functionality.

DT Smart Access System

The access to heavy machinery has traditionally been controlled by supervisors with a set of keys they can hand out to operators who meet specific training and compliance criteria. This system often causes delays while operators track down supervisors, wasting valuable time and resources. DT Smart Access leverages the power of IoT to provide a next-generation access control system for heavy machinery helping companies realise the benefit of IoT-connected machinery and components to simplify and control operator access.

DT Smart Access gives supervisors the freedom to move around the facility and manage workers, and still feel confident that any machinery in operation has up-to-date issue logs and a full audit of checks.

DT Digital Trident Protection System

The DT Digital Trident Protection System from DT Engineering NW Ltd is a cutting edge, EOTC operator protection system, designed in such a way to be installed onto existing overhead cranes or bolted onto new build cranes as part of any initial installation process. The system is easy to use, with full operator indication for stage of lift control and can be used as an active management tool for monitoring safe lifting practices in real time and utilises footage recording for remote monitoring of ground level operations.

The DT Digital Trident Protection System is our solution in providing increased protection to your end crane user in an ever changing, ever demanding and sometimes high risk operation across the board. System installation comes with initial engineer support on site and operator training in the use of the system , providing a smooth and trouble free transition.

DT Digital Trident crane intelligence

By implementing our system onto your crane you will be given the peace of mind that your crane will be completely disabled until the risk is taken away and a better practice for lifting observed.

Advantages of the system are:

DT Digital Trident can be tailored to suit your needs and designed to function as a two man operation or multi user operation depending on your individual lifting requirement

DT Digital Trident can be used as a management asset for remote monitoring in real time of lifts undertaken and also for reviewing previous lifts with full back up and recording of images tailored around your specific operations

DT Digital Trident facilitates an e-mail alert facility under given conditions, such as system being placed into over-ride for example, to chosen addresses again, tailored to your individual requirement and is a useful management tool

DT Digital Trident utilises fully licensed, DT Engineering endorsed, supported software as part of the complete system package
