Exact positioning in box depot


A carriage must be positioned in the box depot. During positioning, very high accuracy, among other factors, is essential. It must be possible to integrate the positioning sensor into the decentralized fieldbus. Moreover, it should be easy to install and support various control protocols.


The AMS 304i optical distance measurement system is used for this purpose. This replaces the inaccurate rope measurement previously done. The system is characterized by very accurate positioning and easy commissioning. It is not subject to mechanical wear and is maintenance-free.
