Position detection of goods trains for loading and unloading

To ensure loading and unloading is performed correctly, especially in automated systems, freight trains must be accurately positioned. With a maximum measuring length of 1,700 m, the KH53 linear encoder is particularly suitable for use on railway tracks. Non-contact technology ensures that the system is accurate and wear-free regardless of train vibrations, contamination and precipitation.
