Leuze electronic shows its colors at LogiMAT 2018

As an expert in conveyor and storage systems, Leuze electronic presents smart sensor solutions for this unique industrial environment at LogiMAT 2018, the international trade fair for intralogistics solutions and process management, from March 13-15 in Stuttgart. Trade fair visitors can look forward to the latest developments from the sensor people for compartment fine positioning and optical tracking.

Smallest camera-based sensor on the
market: the IPS 200i for compartment
fine positioning of high-bay storage devices

Owen, December 15, 2017 – Leuze electronic will be demonstrating its in-depth expertise founded upon many years of experience in intralogistics to machine manufacturers and end users in Hall 7, Booth A61. "More than 50 years of experience and close relationships with our customers have made us true experts in the conveyor and storage systems industry. This is how we develop individual sensor solutions for and with our customers," says Matthias Göhner, Industry Manager for intralogistics at Leuze electronic. No less than two new developments have emerged as a result, which the innovation leader in the optical sensor industry will present to visitors at the LogiMAT 2018 trade fair for the first time: With the IPS 200i, the company has developed the smallest camera-based sensor on the market for quick compartment fine positioning. Due to the compact design, the IPS 200i requires little space on the high-bay storage device and is particularly suitable for use in small-part container storages and in single-depth pallet high-bay warehouses. In line with the company's development claim of straightforward usability, the new IPS 200i is easy to put into operation. It is accomplished using a web-based configuration tool. An alignment system with feedback LEDs provides additional support. Adjustments can be made directly on the device itself. Due to powerful, ambient-light-independent IR LED lighting, a single device can be flexibly used for the entire working range of up to 600 mm. A model with integrated heating for use in refrigerated warehouses down to -30 °C is also available. Condition monitoring with a quality score, which identifies diminishing reading capacity of the sensor early on, reduces downtime and improves the availability and cost effectiveness of the systems. "A second new development specifically for flexible optical tracking is the OGS 600," says Göhner. This is a new sensor that enables cost-efficient vehicle automation for the transport of materials and goods in production and storage areas. With its edge detection and control signal transmission to the drive, the trace can be guided optically, which means that driving can be automated in the simplest of ways. The compact design of the OGS 600 and its low minimum distance to the ground of 10 mm means it can be integrated even into flat vehicles. Models with different detection widths and response times cover a wide range of possible applications, even for narrow curves and at high speeds.
