In prone to slip positioning systems an accurate position determination via the motor encoder is not possible. Therefore an additional measuring system is necessary. See the above figure for a standard positioning application.
The FLS-C laser distance sensor determines contact less very quickly and extremely accurately the current position of an object to be positioned. Next, the FLS-C is a robust and high quality product at a very competitive price.
The drive manufacturer SEW Eurodrive certified the FLS-C distance measuring device for all their possible positioning solutions for the product lines MOVIDRIVE and MOVIAXIS.
A description of how to use the FLS-C laser distance sensor in combinatoin with a SEW inverter can be found in the application note AN2020.
