Positioning and speed measurement on the shuttle

The position of a shuttle can be determined by various sensor solutions such as photoelectric proximity sensors, photoelectric sensors or fork sensors. This is usually done in combination with reference objects such as perforated rails or reflectors. Alternatively, an incremental encoder provides values on positioning speed, acceleration and delay time to the controller. With high repeatability, sensors from SICK ensure that positioning commands are executed with maximum precision.
