Wheel & Drive Safety
Operating a PBB poses serious potential safety risks. Extreme caution needs to be exercised by bridge operators, ramp personnel, and others that may be in the vicinity of the wheels or other moving pieces of the passenger boarding bridge. JBT offers safety solutions and options that can reduce the chances of contact between individuals and objects and the boarding bridge.
Wheel protection system featuring touch-sensitive switches and drive guards encircling the wheel bogey assembly that are designed to stop the movement of the boarding bridge when contact is made with an object.
Joystick enable switch and “WAIT TO DRIVE” features that delay bridge movement momentarily, warning anyone near the wheels and giving them additional time to move away from the wheels.
Emergency Stop Buttons on the console, service stairs, and remote control box to shut down operation of the PBB immediately if someone observes an unsafe situation.
Sensors and detection systems designed to reduce potential collisions with the PBB involving aircraft, other PBBs, or ground support equipment.
Audio & Video Safety Enhancements
JBT offers several safety features and options designed to give advance warning and help personnel remain alert and aware while operating the boarding bridge or working around the boarding bridge.
Closed Circuit TV (CCTV) cameras and monitors
Cab-mounted mirrors (on one or both sides of the cab), providing operators an improved view under the PBB and the area around the wheels
Flashing amber beacons and audible alarms mounted under the cab and near the wheels that sound during bridge operations to warn ramp personnel that the bridge is in operate mode.
