Draw Wire Transducer – stroke measurement

Forklift trucks are commonly used, where a large quantity of goods have to be stored at limited space. Especially in logistics centres storage racks with a height of 12 to 50 m are used. Through this the storage space is expanded to support hundreds of thousands pallet bays. A forklift truck manoeuvres these pallets through narrow hallways and stack them at the intended spaces. To ensure the smooth and secure storage of the pallets, the control of the forklift have to be carried out by a sensor.

Our draw wire sensor SX80 is used to monitor the stroke of the forklift and allows the precise positioning of the pallets. This guarantees that the pallets don’t damage the goods or the racks.
