Checking stack heights on rack element towers
On rack element towers our photoelectric distance sensors precisely monitor the stack height of the welding sheets. Installed above the stack, they use light time-of-flight to determine the available supply fast and with precision. The analog output signal indicates the number of remaining parts. So you always have the overview – from a central location: your robots always have sufficient material to weld. And you can replenish the empty tower without any loss of time.
- Virtually independent of color, material and reflectivity of the object
- Generous working range up to maximum 5 m
- Distance-proportional analog output signal
- Laser class 1, requires no additional protective measures
