Presence Check of Trucks by Wheel Chocks with Integrated Energetic Reflex Sensors

Electronic safety wheel chocks are used to secure truck loading ramps. This prevents the truck from unintentionally rolling away. In addition, the loading platform can only be operated when the truck wheel is present. An energetic reflex sensor integrated into the chock and positioned directly on the wheel checks the truck’s presence. As soon as the sensor in the robust metric metal housing (protection class IP67) detects the wheel, it activates the operation of the loading ramp via the transmitted signal and thus increases the safety of the operating personnel.

Energetic Reflex Sensors

Reflex sensors check objects for presence, check stack heights or perform counting tasks. They are used when objects need to be detected without a defined background. For this purpose, they use red light or infrared light according to the energy principle.
