Presence detection at induction lines and transfer points

For conveying equipment, it is important to be able to detect whether or not the delivery and transfer points are already occupied. All kinds of objects, for example containers, parcels, polybags, and pallets with different challenging and non-challenging surfaces need to be able to be reliably detected. The signal is then used for a number of control tasks; for example, as a trigger for other sensors, or for start and stop functions.
