Simple steering angle detection for compact automated guided vehicles

If continuous steering angle detection is not needed, inductive safety switches are the compact and particularly economic alternative. Using switch cams on the driving and steering unit, IME2S safety switches detect the critical steering angle which requires to switch the protective field.
