Safe speed monitoring on automated guided vehicles (AGV)

The DFS60S Pro incremental safety encoder is used on the main drive axle of an AGV to determine a safe speed, while the AFS/AFM60S absolute encoder detects the safe steering angle. The encoders provide data relating to the steering angle and path. The FX3-MOC motion control modules allow this data to be evaluated in the Flexi Soft safety controller.

  • Following product families can be used
