Many industries use large overhead cranes to move heavy products. These cranes can be automated and monitored using long-distance laser rangefinders. Acuity long-distance lasers are designed to help improve crash avoidance and automated retrieval, and maintain equipment more proactively and efficiently.

Common examples of laser rangefinders used in crane positioning include overhead crane position monitoring at steel mills during the transportation of heavy coils, crane monitoring during the hoisting of large equipment and bridge crane positioning for many industries including the ship docking/cargo transportation industry during the unloading of pallets and containers.

Acuity long-distance rangefinders are suitable for crane positioning applications in many environments. The sensors have a rugged package with NEMA-4, IP65 and IP67 ratings that can be used both indoors and outdoors, allowing sensor versatility to meet application needs. The Acuity AR3000 laser distance sensor is commonly used to measure the position of the crane’s trolley along the longest stretches at ranges up to 3000 m. The Acuity AR1000 laser distance sensor commonly monitors the side-to-side position and vertical position of cranes.
