Positioning with SEW Eurodrive inverter


In prone to slip positioning systems an accurate position determination via the motor encoder is not possible. Therefore an additional measuring system is necessary. See the above figure for a standard positioning application.

The FLS-C laser distance sensor determines contact less very quickly and extremely accurately the current position of an object to be positioned. Next, the FLS-C is a robust and high quality product at a very competitive price.

The drive manufacturer SEW Eurodrive certified the FLS-C distance measuring device for all their possible positioning solutions for the product lines MOVIDRIVE and MOVIAXIS.

A description of how to use the FLS-C laser distance sensor in combinatoin with a SEW inverter can be found in the application note AN2020.
