Monitoring of direction of travel and speed for automated guided carts

The direction of travel and speed of the transport cars must be recorded to ensure that automated guided carts manage curves quickly and safely. The DFS60S Pro safety encoder and the Flexi Soft safety controller with the FX3-MOC motion control module from SICK are ideal for this application. This safe system solution can also be integrated into automated guided carts using very little space.
