Sensors for positioning

At the right position with millimeter accuracy

With moving system parts that need to automatically work together, the positioning of parts or work pieces with millimeter accuracy is of great importance. We offer devices here with two operating principles. One is a laser distance measurement device that measures against a reflector and the other is a bar code positioning system that has a red light laser which determines the position and speed relative to a bar code tape.

The power of optical laser distance measurement

The AMS 300i sensor calculates distances to moving system parts contact-free, fast and with absolute precision at ranges up to 300 m. In cycles lasting just milliseconds, the laser distance measuring system provides the distances required for dynamic control functions with millimeter accuracy using a unique selection of Industrial Ethernet and fieldbus interfaces.

Bar code positioning system

Productselector

Position data without limit – "Infinite", curve-going and with millimeter accuracy

The read head of the bar code positioning system is moved along a bar code tape. It calculates the absolute position data in the direction of travel with millimeter accuracy up to a distance of 10,000m. The bar code tape is extremely simple to use and can be bonded both in straight lines and in curves. Maximum flexibility, simple mounting, transparent diagnosis as well as a large selection of integrated interfaces are the strengths of this system.
