Detection of the lift height in lifting platforms
During maintenance and servicing, it is often necessary to lift entire trains. Synchronous heavy-duty lifting systems are used for this purpose. In order to synchronise the lifting height of the individual columns, optoNCDT ILR laser time-of-flight sensors are used. They measure the vertical distance of the support arms to the ground and thereby determine the lifting height. Their modern interface concept, in combination with high accuracy enables synchronous tuning of the lifting unit.
In addition, further optoNCDT ILR time-of-flight sensors measure the train’s entry into the maintenance hall in order to stop the train at the inteded stopping position. Due to the large measuring range of the sensor, the entry is detected and recorded at an early stage.
