Positioning of multiple indoor cranes

Positioning of multiple indoor cranes during material handling is an important task for ensuring proper positioning and avoiding overhead collisions. To best manage this process, an OLM200 linear measurement sensor determines the crane’s current position using bar code tape mounted along the length of the crane’s track. The bar code tape can be placed along a curve, free roaming path, incline, decline or straight line. The OLM200 accurately determines the crane’s correct position with an excellent repeatability of up to 0.15 mm – even if multiple cranes are on the same runway.
