Positioning Systems

Pepperl+Fuchs Logo

Precise position detection plays a key role in many industrial processes. Depending on the application, this might include determining the position of linear movement units, such as work specimens or tool carriers, verifying angles in part-turn valve actuators, or monitoring of the position of a car on a suspended rail system in warehousing and conveying operations. Pepperl+Fuchs offer non-contact sensors and sensor systems for industrial use for all these applications.

Positioning Systems

Inductive Positioning Systems

Different positioning systems are available to determine precise linear and rotary movements. This inductive position measurement system can get dirty and still work properly. The measuring distances cover a range from a few millimetres to several meters or an angular range of 360°. In addition to the standard analog output for displaying the calculated position, configurable switching outputs are available. This permits certain process-relevant positions to be processed immediately, continuously, and accurately relative to the sensor face.

Position Encoding System WCS

For positioning with long paths of travel Pepperl+Fuchs offer a proven and mature product in the position encoding system WCS. The WCS positioning encoding system excels in the sytems with turns, junctions and gradients. With measuring lengths up to 327 meters it is suited for position detection in:

  • Warehousing and conveying systems
  • Studio technology
  • Crane positioning
  • Galvanization stations
  • Elevators

and for the identification of cars in conveying systems with the synchronized positioning of these cars at fraction-of-a-millimetre precision.
