Positioning small load carriers

In order for the storage and retrieval system's load-carrying unit to be able to precisely grip totes, an accurate stop position for the small load carrier must be defined on the roller conveyor. A G10 photoelectric proximity sensor detects the presence of the small load carrier and stops it in a precise manner using a stopping cylinder. With the innovative Q-Lock mounting system, the photoelectric proximity sensor is quickly installed, which saves time during sensor mounting and commissioning steps.
