Safety solutions allowing automated guided carts to travel at high speeds

Automated guided carts (AGC) manage high speeds even when going around curves thanks to the switching of protective fields. Reliable detection of speed and direction of travel with safety solutions from SICK also reduces the number of components and thereby the required installation space in AGCs.
