Sultan Machinery Positioning System

Principle of Operations

The SULTAN Positioning System is generally mounted on moving machinery. It emits a high powered acoustic wave transmit pulse between two points. The pulse is detected by a Slave transducer mounted on a fixed position which immediately emits a pulse back to the Master on the moving machinery. The Master transmitter calculates transit times and provides a 4-20mA output proportional to the position of the moving machinery in relation to the Slaves fixed position. There is NO wiring requirement between the Master and Slave transducers, which allows for easy retro fit to existing shuttle conveyors, cranes, stackers, reclaimers, etc. Dust, background noise, wet atmosphere, high winds can be compensated for by proper selection of operating frequency of the transducer e.g. use lower frequency transducers where high dust, high wind conditions prevail.
