Options for our firefighting robot TAF35

Railway Kit

More efficient in tunnels, subway systems and in clearing operations

More efficient in tunnels, subway systems and in clearing operations

In order to operate quickly and safely when working in tunnels or subways, you can now rely on a rail-mounted TAF system. To this end, the front and rear of the vehicle are fitted with rail wheels that can be unfolded with ease:
With the help of the remote control, you can steer the firefighting robot onto the track, position the front wheels, adjust the tracks and then set the rear wheels in place. In this way, a single person can prepare the TAF so that it is ready for use on the rail within 30 seconds.

Approaching the track from uneven ground or a meadow is not an issue, since the TAF drive is located on the tracked vehicle, making it move with ease on wet rails. In addition, its enormous traction can be used for logistical purposes such as clearing operations.

Technical data of the rail mounting at a glance:
• Speed of up to 9km/h
• Can be rerailed quickly, within 30 sec
• Remote controlled
• A single person can rerail the tracked vehicle without much physical effort
• Very high traction
• Flexible when rerailing: no need for a flat approaching ground

ⓘ EmiControls holds a worldwide patent for the rail mounting.

Euro Frame

Lets you connect all Euro-tools to the TAF

With the Euro frame, the TAF35 is even more versatile than before. In order to connect different devices to your firefighting robot, such as a shovel or pallet fork, we have developed a universal interface: the so-called Euro frame, which complies with European standards.

The frame consists of 2 bars fitted with a Quick-Lock system enabling the equipment to be docked to the frame within a few seconds. Since the Euro frame is attached to the plate, the equipment can be moved up and down and its inclination can be altered (tilting movement).

Technical data of the Euro frame at a glance:
·        Allows installation of various Euro tools
·        Remote controlled
·        Manual locking
·        2 hydraulic movements: up-and-down and tilting movement
·        The frame can be mounted on the firefighting robot in 5 minutes

Our customers use the Euro frame to connect shovels, pallet forks, snow blowers, dump containers or sweepers.

Air-Ducting Hose

Highly effective ventilation of hard-to-reach areas, underground garages or hangars

Highly effective ventilation of hard-to-reach areas, underground garages or hangars

In case of fire, access to the affected premises is not always easy. The air-ducting hose is ideal when ventilating areas that cannot be reached with the TAF35, especially underground garages and hangars.

The air-ducting system is a non-rigid air hose made of a lightweight, particularly tear-resistant and non-combustible material, which allows air to be blown into smoky rooms. To do so, the air-ducting system is simply clipped onto the turbine with a ring, and can instantly be used to ventilate the area at full power.

Technical data of the air-ducting system at a glance:
• Consists of a lightweight, tear-resistant and non-combustible material
• Easy to lay out and roll up
• Can be attached to the turbine with a ring
• Ideal for ventilating hard-to-reach areas
• Available in 3 different lengths: 35, 50 and 100 m
• Fire class 1 (highest class for non-flammable substances according to UNI9167)

Self-Protection

Best protection for your TAF in tricky applications

Best protection for your TAF in tricky applications

The self-protection option optimises protection of the firefighting robot against high temperatures and radiation.
In this case, 6 nozzles are installed on the base and turbine and use a portion of the extinguishing water to cool the machine. This improves TAF protection in particularly difficult applications, for example in the event of accidents in tunnels.

Technical data of the self-protection function at a glance:
• 2 nozzles cool the turbine
• 4 additional nozzles cool the chassis
• The function can be started easily by opening a valve
• Low water consumption: max. 68 l/min at 16 bar
• Water consumption can be adjusted to 3 different levels

Camera Kit

See through the eyes of our Firefighting Robot

See what the TAF sees

Operators of the firefighting robot TAF need accurate information about navigating through the environment, to detect hazards and locate hot spots. The camera kit allows operators to see exactly what the turbine sees in real time and then react accordingly. In this way, the tracked vehicle can be steered much more effectively to the source of the fire and therefore facilitate targeted firefighting from a safe distance.

Kit details:
The camera kit consists of 4 regular video cameras (front and rear view) + 1 thermal imaging camera.
4 high gain directional antennas ensure proper communication.

The cameras are mounted on the front and rear of the turbine and tracked vehicle, providing you with an excellent all-around view. With the help of the thermal imaging camera, you can identify the “hot spots”, steer the firefighting robot directly to the fire source and then fight the fire.

This camera kit got developed for use in especially harsh environments. The thermal imaging camera works well also in heavy smoke conditions, while night-time vision is ensured by the “night mode” function.

The images produced by the cameras are displayed on a tablet, which is mounted on the remote control of the tracked vehicle. A split screen reproduces the images of the 5 cameras, full-screen images can be obtained by clicking on the image required. Moreover, the operator can easily switch back and forth between the full-screen images of the various cameras. The data, produced by the cameras, can also be received on other devices, such as a Smartphone, by simply installing the appropriate software and remaining within range of the tracked vehicle (300m). It is also possible to switch from WLAN to LTE (SIM-card required) at any time, according to the signal quality.

Other technical data at a glance:

  • Sweeping rear and front view
  • Tablet degree of protection: IP 67
  • Tablet and Software are included
  • Images can also be displayed on other devices via WLAN/LTE
  • The operator of the tracked vehicle can receive images from a distance of up to 300m
