Basic Wiring Requirements

  • Typically installation of the wire is located down the center of each aisle to be guided and extends a minimum of 15 feet beyond both ends of the racking when possible.
  • The wire starts at the line driver and goes down the center of each aisle requiring guidance and terminated back at the line driver.
  • This installation creates a continuous loop of wire for the signal to run through.
  • Two guide wires located in the same aisle must be a min. of 30-36” apart based on truck manufacturer.
  • A guidance system will always have an even number of lines installed to create a closed continuous loop.
