We are a leading manufacturer of industrial sensors and sensor systems making us specialists in these fields; therefore providing you with an extensive product selection and specific solutions to fit all of your needs.
The chemical, pharmaceutical and petrochemical industries rely on Pepperl+Fuchs. Our interface components create connections in industrial automation systems including analog signal transfer and digital fieldbus communication.
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.
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.
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.
