Whether electric monorail systems, crane trolleys or stacker cranes—they all have to be positioned very precisely over long distances in the plant. With 0.2 mm resolution over distances of up to 100 km, PXV technology perfectly meets the demands of exact absolute positioning, even over long and complex distances. In this blog article, we take a look at what makes camera-based linear positioning with the PXV system so unique and how the combination of the 2-D camera system with the Data Matrix code tape ensures precise position detection and maximum process reliability.
Data Matrix codes pack a tremendous amount of digital information into a postage-stamp-sized footprint. Found in seemingly endless commercial and consumer areas, such as warehouses, distribution centers, automotive, and production facilities, their full potential in industrial automation applications is only now being tapped. Want to elevate your logistics? Read on to learn how this powerful technology enhances the control of autonomous mobile robots (AMR) and automated guided vehicles (AGV).
In the automation world, many different types of positioning systems are available. Whether mechanical, optical, magnetic, ultrasonic, inductive, camera-based systems, or a combination of technologies, determining which of these is effective for your positioning application is critical to the success of your automated processes.
