          • Our broad range of photoelectric sensors is aimed at all automation solutions where noncontact object detection can be utilized. The wide variety of different operating principles, models, sizes and specifications means that the best possible sensor can always be found for the relevant application and all conditions that occur in practice can be met.
              • Ultrasonic Sensors

              • In industrial applications, ultrasonic sensors are characterized by their reliability and outstanding versatility. Ultrasonic sensors can be used to solve even the most complex tasks involving object detection or level measurement with millimeter precision, because their measuring method works reliably under almost all conditions.

                No other measuring method can be successfully put to use on such a wide scale and in so many different applications. The devices are extremely robust, making them suitable for even the toughest conditions. The sensor surface cleans itself through vibration, and that is not the only reason why the sensor is insensitive to dirt. The physical principle—the propagation of sound—works, with a few exceptions, in practically any environment.

                The measuring method employed by ultrasonic sensors has been viewed as an excessively complex technology, and only used as a “last resort” ... as a solution for particularly difficult applications. Those times have long since passed! Ultrasonic sensors have proven their reliability and endurance in virtually all industrial sectors.

                  • Industrial Vision

                  • Image processing is one of the most crucial and challenging sensor technologies of the future. Until recently, integrating vision sensors into practical applications was difficult and extremely expensive. Today, vision sensors can be implemented in a wide variety of industries and applications, offering cost advantages over standard solutions in difficult sensing environments.

                    The available devices and systems range from barcode imagers to vision sensors and system solutions that are adapted to the application requirements. Pepperl+Fuchs vision sensors bridge the gap between standard photoelectric sensors and costly machine vision systems with a more powerful and flexible solution.
                      • Rotary Encoders

                      • Rotary encoders can be used in all applications that require monitoring rotation rate, speed, acceleration and direction. These sensors can be utilized in many applications found in mechanical engineering, the conveyor industry, material handling and the packaging industry. You are certain to find a suitable rotary encoder for your application from our broad product offering.

                        In automation, rotary encoders are used as sensors for angle, position, speed and acceleration. Linear motion can also be measured through the use of spindles, gear racks, measuring wheels or cable pulls.
                        Rotary encoders convert a mechanical input into electrical signals, which can be processed by counters, tachometers, programmable logic controllers and industrial PCs.

                          • Positioning Systems

                          • Pepperl+Fuchs utilizes different technologies to provide industrial positioning systems for virtually any positioning task.
                              • Inclination and Acceleration Sensors

                              • Whether you want to monitor the inclination angle of a machine component or the acceleration values of system structures or components, Pepperl+Fuchs offers the right solution for your needs.
                                  • AS-Interface

                                  • AS-Interface: a worldwide Standard

                                    The actuator-sensor interface (AS-Interface) replaces conventional wiring technology on the sensor-actuator level. AS-Interface has firmly established itself as a worldwide standard for the cost-effective transfer of power and signals along a single cable. It is an open system and is compatible with all common fieldbus systems.

                                      • Identification Systems

                                          • Displays and Signal Processing

                                          • Our logic control devices provide a multitude of features for use in the automation industry. Frequently, discrete sensor or analog signals need to be conditioned for display or monitoring functions in a process. To help you solve these signal conversion problems, we offer a wide range of indicators, counters/ timers, tachometers and other secondary switching devices, specifically designed for applications and used in conjunction with proximity sensors.

                                            When it comes to signal and discrete pulse control and display, Pepperl+Fuchs offers you a broad line of logic and control products.
