Protrusion detection at the shuttle

To guarantee unhindered movement and to avoid collisions, it is necessary to monitor overruns on load-carrying units. This prevents damage to shuttles, load carriers, and shelves. Photoelectric retro-reflective sensors provide an optimal solution for this thanks to their compact design and uniform light spot geometry.
