The automated movement and storage of intermediate and final products in the production process requires in critical areas force monitoring devices and overload protection. An example are the chain conveyors in the automotive industry that must shut down in case of failure in order to avoid congestions and major damage. Other applications are high-bay storages which are generally loaded by robots and must be protected against overload conditions in critical areas. But there are also exotic applications such as the monitoring of the load lifting device on a helicopter.
