Spotted: "The Smiler" and ifm
"The Smiler", the roller coaster with the most inversions worldwide, provides limitless joy rides combined with innovative technology - for example inductive proximity sensors from ifm.
During the Easter holidays, an ifm colleague visited England's popular "Alton Towers" amusement park.
While other passengers were already eagerly awaiting the most rollovers in the world, he discovered ifm sensors at the safety harnesses. More precise, type IN inductive proximity sensors.
The ifm sensors are used to monitor the minimum fastening position of the safety harnesses.
