Encoders for AGVs - Logistics 4.0

Featured Product from Hymark/Kentucky Gauge


Automated guided vehicles (AGVs) are transforming the way materials are moved in manufacturing facilities and distribution warehouses. In buildings where several operations are carried out simultaneously, AGVs can ensure automated, predictable and reliable relocation of parts and products across the facility, eliminating any disruptions in the day-to-day operations.

Utilizing Lika Electronic’s vast range of precision, compact and modular encoder products, AGVs can safely navigate around structures, machinery, and even mobile employees. Lika offers encoders for every facet of AGV movement to ensure safe and reliable operation:

  • Determination of driving speed
    • Compact incremental rotary encoders and bearingless encoders
    • Hollow shaft and solid shaft variants
    • Magnetic and optical variants
    • Industry 4.0 ready
  • Steering angle monitoring
    • Compact absolute rotary encoders and kit encoders
    • Hollow shaft and solid shaft variants
    • Magnetic and optical variants
    • Industry 4.0 ready
  • Lift height measurement
    • Draw-wire encoders with measurement ranges up to 50m
    • Resolutions up to 0.01mm
    • Robust housing
    • Industry 4.0 ready

Many of Lika’s encoders feature a compact and lightweight design, which provides engineers with greater flexibility, especially in these applications where space and weight is critical. Additionally, Lika offers the most comprehensive Ethernet and Fieldbus range on the market integrated directly into the encoders to simplify installation and integration into your network – Profinet, Ethernet/IP, EtherCAT, POWERLINK, MODBUS TCP, CANopen, Profibus, DeviceNet, and MODBUS RTU. The full compliance of both the hardware and the software to the protocols, the integration of the complete set of programming functions (position and velocity readout, scaling, preset, code sequence…), and the advanced diagnostics, even via integrated web server, enable improved performances and allow to achieve robustness, efficiency, versatility, integrability, and productivity that are required by the most advanced industrial systems.
