Safety in automated guided vehicle systems

Automated guided vehicle systems (AGVS) have become part and parcel of everyday operations. AGVSs offer numerous advantages: these range from more flexibility and better use of space to increased safety.

The increasingly battery-powered systems offer the greatest possible flexibility within a production facility or a logistics centre, because they can head for their destination directly without having to follow a predefined route.

In terms of safety, the requirements for autonomous automated guided vehicle systems are tough. People and other vehicles along the travel path and incorrect operation of the vehicle represent unpredictable factors which could compromise the safety personnel.
For this reason, the electrical components used in these systems must comply with appropriate safety standards. Catering precisely for this, Schaltbau has special DC contactor models in its product range – the bidirectional C100/80, C100/120 and C100/200 with auxiliary switches. Learn More
