An eddy current brake makes use of the Lorentz force acting on an electrical conductor transverse to the field lines of a magnetic field. This results in induced eddy currents, which in turn generate a magnetic field that ultimately slows down the moving object.
SX135 series draw-wire sensors can be adapted precisely to customer-specific applications thanks to a wide range of options and special designs. The linear sensors are used, for example, in automated warehouse management, e.g. in port facilities or warehouses. Draw-wire encoders measure the travel of cranes and transmit the information to the control system. This ensures safe and precise operation of the plant. Especially in situations where people and machines are working closely together, the safety provided by the WayCon snapping protection is of particular importance.
