In the anniversary year 2020, Sarissa GmbH will present numerous innovations of the Local Positioning System (LPS) to mark the company's tenth anniversary.
The electronics of the Sarissa tool transmitter are available to tool manufacturers for integration into their tools. The supply voltage for the position sensor is taken from the tool battery. The housing of the position sensor is now integrated into the tool. The Sarissa LPS is integrated as a position indicator into the tool manufacturer's operator guidance and thus offers a real alternative to electromechanical or optical sensor solutions.
The newly developed ILG interface between the LPS and tools from Atlas Copco makes communication between the position detection system and the tool controllers much easier.
The Sarissa sensor hand wrap is now even better adapted to the shape of the average hand and is therefore considerably more comfortable to wear. It is used for small gripping positions, as it can distinguish hand positions with an accuracy of 50 mm.
Where previously a screen was required to visualize the next work step, a laser projection is now available to indicate the next position to be processed. The representation takes place through colored laser visualizations. In many cases this has many advantages over pick-to-light, projected pictures, or a display on a screen. Even small-scale visualization is possible, particularly in tight, confusing areas.
The PositionBox with PROFINET connects our position detection and a laser projector with the PLC of the user. The LPS transmits the coordinate information to the PLC in a bidirectional cyclic process image. The reverse channel is used to give the PLC the option of using the laser projector or a conventional screen for visualization. The PLC does not have to worry about the coordinate system of the laser projector, as that takes place smartly in the background of the LPS.
