              • 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

                  • Industrial vision is one of the key sensor technologies of the future.

                      • 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

                          • Whether high precision, ruggedness, or cost efficiency: the requirements for positioning systems are diverse. To meet these demands perfectly, Pepperl+Fuchs offers a number of solutions and combines the benefits of optical, camera-based, and inductive positioning systems in one portfolio.
                              • Inclination and Acceleration Sensors

They ensure precise measurements, even in harsh conditions. An innovative, two-piece mounting concept makes the F99 series extremely robust: a rugged metal mounting bracket provides the sensor module with impact protection and enables quick and easy replacement of the sensor module if needed. Once installed, the bracket can stay in place without need for new adjustment or calibration. With its corrosion-resistant aluminum housing, the one-piece F199 inclination sensor is just as robust and measures inclination from 0 to 360° with ±0.15° accuracy.
