Distance positioning sensor
12 December 2012
Reported to achieve best-in-class levels of accuracy over greater distances for positioning and control in fast-moving environments, SICK UK has launched its next-generation laser distance measurement sensor, DL100 Hi.
The high performance of the DL100Hi can help achieve cost and operating efficiencies in high-speed automated applications such as warehouse storage and retrieval and in distancing and collision prevention for overhead cranes.
With the DL100Hi, SICK claims to have developed significantlyimproved control loop technology to achieve faster and more accurate position feedback. The sensor's data output supports applications with acceleration values up to 15m/s2. As a result, for example, storage and retrieval systems can become more efficient, achieving shorter run times.
