Pepperl+Fuchs use different technologies to provide industrial positioning systems for virtually any positioning task.
The range includes:
- Inductive Positioning Systems
- Distance Measurement Sensors
- Position Encoding System WCS
- Data Matrix Positioning System PCV
- Position Guided Vision PGV
- Electronic CAM-Switch Controller PAX
Inductive Positioning Systems
Various industrial positioning systems for high precision detection of linear movements and rotations are available. Inductive positioning systems are resistant to external contamination..
Distance Measurement Sensors
Distance measurement sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs use the optical concept of Pulse Ranging Technology (PRT). With modern PRT, distances to 300 m with accuracies of 0.1 mm are easily achieved.
Position Encoding System WC
For positioning over longer travel paths, the position encoding system WCS excels in systems with curves, switchpoints, inclines, or declines. With measurement lengths to 327 m, WCS is suitable for position detection in warehousing, material handling and automated conveyor systems, crane positioning, elevators, and much more...
Data Matrix Positioning System PCV
The Data Matrix Positioning System uses Data Matrix codes, which are arranged side by side on a code reel as an information carrier. The reading head, based on modern camera technology, captures these two-dimensional codes and evaluates the exact position in X- and Y directions - up to 10,000 meters.
Position Guided Vision PGV
The versatile PGV camera simultaneously scans and processes data from three different floormounted initiators: the solid “travel path” navigation stripe, the high-resolution absolute positional band, and the decision-initiating control code (identification) segments.
Turns, stops, and starts are among many actions initiated by 15 mm x 15 mm data matrix control code squares that are also installed alongside the tracking strips.
Electronic CAM-Switch Controller PAX
PAX is a non-contact electronic CAM-Switch Controller and is used with the PMI inductive angle sensor. Easily capture machine shaft position without expensive, time-consuming mechanical cams! Configure up to 14 switch outputs and 6 analog outputs via the intuitive, integrated software.
