Magnetic Guide Sensors
Roboteq’s Magnetic Guide Sensor is a sensor capable of detecting and reporting the position of a magnetic field along its horizontal axis The sensor is intended for applications in Automatic Guided Vehicles – or AGVs -, using inexpensive adhesive magnetic tape to form a guide on the floor. Compared to other guiding techniques, magnetic guides are totally passive and therefore easy to lay and modify. The tape creates an invisible field that is immune to dirt and unaffected by lighting conditions. The magnetic track can be totally hidden under any non-ferrous flooring material. The sensor can be interfaced directly to any of Roboteq’s motor controllers in order to create an effective AGV solution with just two components. The sensor can also be connected to any PLC, PC or single board computer using a choice of Analog, PWM, RS232, USB or CANbus interfaces. Roboteq sells adhesive magnetic tape of 25mm (1") and 50mm (2") width, in 50 meter (150ft) rolls.
Precision magnetic sensor for detecting and measuring the position of a magnetic track along the horizontal axis, for use in Automatic Guided Vehicles and other Automation applications.
