Detection of the pallet shuttle reference position

At the end of the aisle, the end position of the shuttle is checked by the GL6 miniature photoelectric sensor against the reflector at the start/stop position, compared with the position value of the encoder on the drive axis, and corrected if necessary. This referencing process allows the positioning accuracy to remain at an equally high level at all times.
