Easy object monitoring in intralogistics

Home Transport & Logistics Commercial & Fleet Easy object monitoring in intralogistics

IFM South Africa is offering measuring light grids, which it describes as “perfectly suitable” for monitoring intralogistics processes.

An evaluation of how many and which light beams are obstructed is provided and can be used to detect whether the conveyed objects are in the correct and safe transport position, the company said in a statement.

With a beam distance of 10 millimeters, the height and width of pallets, packages, and boxes, too, can be precisely detected.

Five different measured values in total can be transmitted via IO-Link using the multi-beam system. The height, position, and the contour of one or several objects can be derived from these values.

Diagnostic information on operating hours is determined and transmitted digitally for needs-based maintenance.
