Sick Positioning Sensor

April 28, 2010
Sick introduces its OLM distance measurement positioning sensor, designed for high-speed, high-precision positioning of overhead cranes, rail and transfer cars, monorails, shuttles, elevators and other vehicles.

Using the OLM’s linear barcode tape, users can position vehicles with 0.1-mm resolution at distances up to 10 km, providing more than six miles of unique positions. The non-contact sensor offers the longest runtime of any positioning sensor, according to Sick.

According to the company, the OLM eliminates overshooting targets, creeping into position and re-zeroing.
