Avoid system-dependent imprecision for push/pull force monitoring systems on travels longer than 150 m. System-dependent imprecision due to static force limits for travels > 150m are a thing of the past. Now there is the new EC. PR module. Here, force limits are dynamically adjusted with information from PLC control systems, OPC-UA servers, or analogue (4-20 mA) path measurement systems (Profinet /EC. PP). This reduces repair cost and effort; replacing a stacker reclaimer, for example, costs $30,000 or more.
