Accurate position determination for different load carriers on the load handling device

Rugged ultrasonic technology is the first choice for determining the position of a wide range of load carriers. The wide sonic beam reflects on fine drop-side mesh pallets. Between programmable switching points, the UM18 ultrasonic sensor signals the presence of the load or reports a constant measured value for the position.
