Positioning solutions for the Automation Industry
For the different applications of industrial automation ELGO offers systems for real-time position and angle measurement in its portfolio.
The wide range of magnetic measuring systems provides a reliable, robust and precise solution for every automation application. The wear-free operation of our measuring systems contributes significantly to increasing plant efficiency and thus availability.
Our magnetic measuring systems allow real-time solutions for a wide variety of applications in the field of drive technology. As motor feedback systems, they offer high resolution and system accuracy.
Whether linear or rotary, ELGO has a large number of sensors that meet the requirements of modern drives and provide them with a reliable and durable exact position. Also for highly dynamic drives with a high resolution (up to 1 µm), we have solutions in our portfolio which, thanks to the magnet technology used, reliably perform their service even in the case of contamination by ambient conditions.
Industry 4.0 relies on robust, highly integrated process solutions.
ELGO's proven, contact-free and therefore wear-free measuring sensors provide the right technologies to control and coordinate all necessary process steps in in-house logistics.
Our magnetic absolute measuring systems reliably deliver the exact position of the goods to be transported in all dimensions of a room or, as in the case of AGVs, help to control and steer them purposefully. With our sensors, distances of several hundred meters in both the horizontal and vertical direction can be realized. Especially for vertical applications, our sensors can also fulfil prescribed safety functions in order to prevent uncontrolled system hazards through e.g. emergency braking functions.
