Rite-Hite's Dok-Commander is engineered for safety and security in the loading dock environment

The Dok-Commander Control System from Rite-Hite integrates the controls of multiple loading dock devices into a centralized control system. The Dok-Commander, which is specifically engineered for a loading dock environment, can power a variety of equipment at each loading dock position, including a vehicle restraint, dock leveler, dock door and dock light. There is no need for multiple controls to operate different pieces of equipment – a single Dok-Commander can power virtually everything at a loading dock position.

Key Features

  • The Dok-Commander comes with an interlock feature to ensure equipment is engaged in the proper sequence of operation. A Green Light Interlock disables the use of a hydraulic leveler or overhead door until the vehicle restraint has achieved a safe engagement. An Overhead Door Interlock requires the overhead door to be opened prior to leveler operation. And finally, a Stored Leveler Interlock ensures the leveler is stored safely before the restraint is able to release a trailer.
  • Unlike standard PLC controls, the Dok-Commander is designed and engineered for the harsh conditions of a loading dock environment. It meets the requirements for electrical noise, electrical and environmental conditions and chemicals.
  • The Dok-Commander also adds a level of security when linked with an active building security system. If an engaged restraint is tampered with, the building security system is notified and facility protocol is followed.
  • The narrow design of the Dok-Commander allows for tight door centerlines at a dock position, while a simplified control panel is easy for loading dock workers to operate. In addition, the Dok-Commander integrates flexible circuitry for fast, easy component upgrades in the field.
