Speed detection and steering angle monitoring with Kübler sensors.
Materials handling vehicles, also called automatic guided vehicles (AGV), have been used successfully in modern logistics centers for many years – a growing trend. Goods and materials of different loads are transported to defined locations, stacked and either put into storage or removed. Logistics centers are only made more efficient if automatic guided vehicles are steered precisely. Sensors play an essential role here. Kübler encoders are successfully used here for speed detection and precise steering angle monitoring. Draw-wire encoders ensure an exact position of the load carrier and thus for a precise measuring of the lift height. Precise and reliable sensors result in an optimal travel speed and flawless storage and retrieval of goods.
