Truck Position Measurement
Type: Position measurement
In times of increasing traffic and ever more demanding tasks where time is of the essence, a system has been developed to speed up customs checks on HGV vehicles. Our device helps to significantly reduce time-consuming check-ups on vehicles with the positioning of the trucks done with sensors.
Customs uses mobile X-Ray scanners to check the contents of trucks and containers. During this scanning process the movement of the scanner must be accurately determined.
Three sensors measure the position of the moving scanning device. With these three distance measurements the exact position of the scanner is determined. These Laser Distance Sensors are used in outdoor application. Therefore, the sensors need to be robust, while fulfilling the precise measurement requirements at all times. Due to their extended temperature range Dimetix Laser Distance Sensors are the best solution for this application.
DIMETIX APPLICATION EXAMPLE
Dimetix Sensors – the solution for applications with high precision requirements Thanks to the clearly arranged product portfolio the evaluation of a suitable Dimetix distance laser sensor is simple and uncomplicated.
Dimetix sensors offer numerous features, which are integrated in each and every device as standard, including, among others, various interfaces like SSI, RS-422/485, RS-232 and 2 digital outputs. Optionally, the Industrial Ethernet interfaces PROFINET, EtherNET/IP and EtherCAT are also available. Furthermore, all devices are IP65-protected and impress with a weight of less than 500 grams!
Particularly noteworthy, however, is the accurate measurement of 1 millimeter over distances of up to 500 meters, even under the most extreme conditions. This is possible with the sensors of the types DPE, DEN and DEH.
No less interesting are sensors of types DAE, DAN and DBN. Preferably, they can be used for projects which do not require a range over 500 meters or are cost-sensitive.
