Monitoring of the stack height

For the pallet handling machine to be operated continuously, the number of pallets in the pallet stacker has to be monitored. The PowerProx MultiTask photoelectric sensor detects objects reliably – even with shiny or jet-black surfaces and background reflections. It uses several switching points to monitor the stack height and transmits the data to the control via IO-Link.
