Checking of storage space occupancy

In order to be able to automatically signal empty shelves in the component rack, cylindrical photoelectric sensors or miniature photoelectric sensors are installed on the base of the shelves. The sensors are characterized by their small housings and wide variety of mounting options. This enables optimal, flat installation on the base. The flexibly expandable FlexChain light grid system can also be used as an alternative. With up to 60 cascaded sensors, a high level of measurement certainty can be ensured with equally simple and flexible cabling.
