Example of an horizontally mounted protective field permanently
monitored by Pharo. In this way a larger area can be monitored
through the detection of the lower limbs of the body.
If the controlled plane is installed in a vertical position, even very
large accesses can be protected. Hands, arms or the whole body can
be detected, depending on the chosen resolution.
Note: the contour detection is mandatory for the vertical mount /
access control applications.
|Protection of Automatic Guided Vehicles (AGV)
The vast size of the controlled area allows the AGV to travel at higher
speeds with respect to bumper protection.
The warning area permits speed reduction in the presence of obstacles.
The data measured by the sensor can be sent to the vehicle on
the serial interface and used as navigation aid.
The sensor is first of all a measurement device. Therefore, the measurement data of the surrounding environment, which are always available during operation, can also be used for object profile, position and dimensions measurement in industrial automation.
