Leuze IPS 400i camera-based positioning sensor

The IPS 400i camera-based positioning sensor is designed for optical compartment fine positioning in high-bay storage devices.

The previous model IPS 200i camera-based positioning sensor was designed for single depth high pallet racks and small-part container storage. In contrast, the IPS400i detects round holes or reflectors not only in single-depth, but also double-depth bars and thus determines the position deviation relative to the target position in the X and Y directions. This makes the sensor particularly suited to use in double-depth pallet high-bay warehouses.

A model with integrated heating for use in refrigerated warehouses down to -30°C is also available. Both variants — IPS 200i and IPS 400i — offer the user simple and fast commissioning and operation. The sensors are put into operation using a web-based configuration tool with a user-controlled installation assistant. Printed configuration codes are read in without a PC via Code Generator, which means that configuration adjustments can be made directly on the high-bay storage device. An alignment system consisting of four feedback LEDs further facilitates the commissioning process.

Due to its ambient-light-independent IR LED lighting, fault-free use in warehouse technology is possible with one single device for a working range of up to 2400 mm. With the integrated TCP/IP interface and Profinet RT, the IPS 400i can be directly integrated into the network environment and enables quick, location-independent diagnostics. Condition monitoring and predictive maintenance take place using a quality score that detects deterioration in the reading performance of the sensor at an early stage.
