These play detectors are fitted to four post and scissor lifts but are also used in inspection pits as a standalone unit.

Hydraulically driven they are far superior to air driven units and have become the most common form of shaker plate in the market.

They are controlled by a handset which houses the operation buttons and a high-power LED lamp. The original design showed weakness in its’ components and has been superseded many times by the manufacture to try and overcome the issues.
