Positioning of electroplating cars


Carriages that drive over dipping baths must be exactly positioned. The system is controlled via PROFIBUS, i.e. a device with integrated PROFIBUS interface is necessary. In addition, the optical measurement system should not be sensitive to prevailing steam and ensure that its laser spot is clearly visible on the reflector.


The AMS 304i optical distance measurement systems are employed for this purpose. They position more precisely as their predecessors and, due to the improved PROFIBUS connection per GSD file, are easier to configure.
