Industrial crane positioning in waste bunkers

Two DL100 Pro long range distance sensors are installed per crane. The sensors ensure exact positioning of the crane and crane trolley, and prevent them from colliding with the walls of the waste bunker. Their durable construction, in connection with laser measurement, guarantees high availability with minimum maintenance required. By installing two parallel sensors it is also possible to monitor the synchronization control of the industrial crane. Under these harsh ambient conditions, the KH53 linear encoder can also be used as an alternative for the purpose of industrial crane positioning.
