Turck Supplies RFID Position Measurement for Fairground Rides

Turck encoders, RFID tags and read/write heads ensure safe movement for fairground rides.

Ready for Take-Off

German amusement park supplier Wiegand is implementing innovative position measurements into two fairground rides. In the future, the rides will rely on a system consisting of encoders and RFID read/write heads from automation expert Turck, connected to a Hima safety controller. Wiegand previously used an optical encoder in its Wie-Flyers and Bobkart circuits that only offered limited performance in severe outdoor environments.

After the component was discontinued, Wiegand and its integrator ARI-contact came across a permanently robust solution based on Hima and Turck products. Turck encoders, RFID tags and read/write heads will ensure safe movement for these fairground rides in future. Through the combination of incremental and RFID position sensing, the system reliably prevents any collisions.
