Positioning systems

Positioning Systems

Pepperl+Fuchs utilizes different technologies to provide industrial positioning systems for virtually any positioning task. Our product range includes:

Inductive Position Measuring Systems (PMI)
The PMI inductive positioning system is used to detect linear position and measure rotation angle. The positioning system is reliable in dusty and dirty environments and under extreme temperature fluctuations.

Distance Sensors
A wide variety of processes have been used to address different types of distance sensing applications. Pepperl+Fuchs now - in contrast to our competitors – offers a complete sensor family based entirely on the superior Pulse Ranging Technology (PRT).

Position Encoding System (WCS)
The WCS absolute linear encoder system from Pepperl+Fuchs provides fraction-of-a-millimeter position feedback to a wide range of industrial and commercial applications.

Data Matrix Positioning System (PXV, safePXV)
The PXV Data Matrix Positioning System from Pepperl+Fuchs is a positioning system that uses data matrix codes to determine precise positioning. The heart of the system is the 2-D read head. It consists of a camera module with a built-in light unit. It reads and decodes the position marks that are printed as two-dimensional Data Matrix codes on a self-adhesive code band.

Position Guided Vision (PGV, safePGV)
Data Matrix codes, which pack a tremendous amount of digital information in a postage stamp-sized footprint, can be found in seemingly endless commercial and consumer areas. But their full potential in industrial automation applications is only now being tapped. By integrating this powerful technology into traditional AGV control, material handling is elevated to an entirely new level.

Precision Positioning (PHA)
When the safe and efficient transport and positioning of goods and production assets is needed, PHA vision sensors are the right choice. Especially designed for precision positioning of stacker cranes, the sensors include a variety of powerful features.

Electronic CAM-Switch Controller (PAX)
The electronic cam controller PAX offers freely selectable and configurable cam switch outputs, 14 digital, and 6 analog outputs. All outputs can be configured by the customer. The electronic cam controller PAX has multiturn capability, providing cyclical cam position information.
