Synchronizing the package ejection

In conjunction with a DFS60 incremental encoder, the PowerProx Speed MultiTask photoelectric sensor identifies the position and length of the wooden boards when they pass through. Each board then receives a time stamp and an actuator identification number which facilitates the fully-automated synchronization of the package ejection.
