Forklifts: Measuring the Position of the Fork
In warehouses with less than ideal visibility, the fork position can be precisely determined. Our magnetic encoders are ideal for continuously detecting the depth position of the fork with millimeter accuracy. The magnetic tape recessed into the extendable part of the fork is sensed without contact by a receiver at the end of the fixed fork section. Good to know: When used on a forklift the driver can view any fork position on a display.
