Proper positioning of overhead cranes inside storage are

Correctly positioning overhead cranes to manage, move and retrieve finished steel product is accomplished with mid or long range distance sensors with sensing ranges from 150 mm up to 300 m. Due to their highly reliable measurement capabilities, distance sensors accurately position overhead cranes. Best of all, distance sensors have easy-to-understand setup and programming, ensuring they can be commissioned quickly. They offer the perfect combination of range, reliability, precision and price for this indoor material handling task.
