Protecting a automated guided cart (AGC) with a safety laser scanner

Flexible material transportation to the production line is carried out with automated guided vehicles (AGV), known as carts. Thanks to its compact dimensions, the S300 Mini safety laser scanner can be fully integrated into small vehicles. It delivers non-contact detection of people and objects located in the path of an AGV, avoiding the mechanical damage that can be caused when using switching strips or bumpers.
