The UBG-05LN obstacle detection sensor is specifically used for scanning the traveling path of AMHS (Automated Material Handling Systems) such as AGCs, AGVs, RGVs and overhead transports as a means of protecting equipment from impact. This laser-based scanner offers a compact size, higher accuracy, wider detection range with 180º scanning field and simple interfacing via an RS-232 connection to a PC for programming the detection area outputs.
