Height detection of stored goods in vertical storage systems

Measuring automation light grids support optimal use of available storage capacity in vertical storage systems. During stored goods put away, the light grid measures their height on the tray and at the same time detects any overheights and overruns. Thanks to the single-beam evaluation, the light grid can reliably detect even very small height differences.
