Positioning of An Indoor Crane with Pulse Ranging Technology [Movie]
Automatic cranes can be positioned in a variety of ways. One of the most effective methods is non contact distance measurement using laser displacement sensors. The VDM70 laser sensor precisely measures the distance of the crane to the end position. It corrects the skew electronically, providing smooth travel along the path.
