Application Example (17)
Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV)
- ・Detect obstacles such as magnetic tape around the guiding line of the automated guided vehicle (AGV) to stop the vehicle.
Issues & Requests
- ・Want to sense obstacles around the guiding line in an appropriate range.
- ・Need a small-sized long-distance reflective sensor because of the limited mounting space.
- ・Want to eliminate sensor’s malfunctioning due to external disturbing light.
- ・Adopted model:
Light diffuse reflective sensor B5W-DB1452-1/-２
- ・In spite of its small size, this sensor realizes long distance detection by light modulation method and optical lens design. And it is effective for detection at a position away from the equipment.
- ・This sensor has a function that makes it less susceptible to disturbance via light. However, it may malfunction depending on the type and intensity of the light disturbance, so install a sensor to prevent the light disturbance from entering.
