Ensuring efficiency in rotary encoders when generating signals

Ensuring efficiency in rotary encoders when generating signals
A new BlueBeam technology has been developed for incremental rotary encoders with optical sensing principle increases efficiency when generating signals. Specially developed blue emitter LEDs, combined with modern and more finely structured sensing chips, allow a more energetic penetration depth of the blue light in the chip. The result is a higher resolution, significantly improved signal amplitude, and a considerably improved signal quality.

Universal code reader reads all common 1D and 2D codes

Universal code reader reads all common 1D and 2D codes
Compact, economical and easy-to-mount and configure, the new MAC335 Universal Code Reader has been launched by Pepperl+Fuchs. The stationary barcode imager reads the most common 1D and 2D code symbologies without having to change settings. It’s extremely high 1.3MP resolution enables it to accurately and reliably read small and large codes at distances ranging from 20-300mm at three readings per second.

Adjustable long-range reader can read at distances of 15ft

Adjustable long-range reader can read at distances of 15ft
 A new long-range F192 reader has been introduced by Pepperl+Fuchs, putting out the maximum power allowed by the FCC, 4W EIRP, making it suitable for reading tags at distances of more than 15ft. The output power is adjustable to as low as 10mW, so the F192 works equally well for short-read ranges. Power adjustability is especially important when operators want to read a specific RFID tag, not the tags located to the left, right, or behind it.

Compact Luminescence Sensors Earn High Marks for Detecting the Invisible

Compact Luminescence Sensors Earn High Marks for Detecting the Invisible
DK50-UV Luminescence Sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs provide an easy, reliable way to complete tasks such as error checking, sorting, measuring, and positioning materials that blend into a background or are invisible.  They detect fluorescent chalk marks, clear glue, tamper-proof seals and other marks that regular contrast sensors cannot, even on irregular backgrounds, and deliver an industry leading (luminescence sensor) sensing range of 600 mm in a space-saving housing that is 50% smaller than previous generation luminescence sensors.  A light spot with a small focal point allows you to detect small parts such o-rings, pin-point leaks, and invisible markings down to 2.2 mm diameter targets.  These sensors are UL and cUL listed.

F192-UHF Read/Write Head for Large Detection Ranges

F192-UHF Read/Write Head for Large Detection Ranges
UHF read/write heads from Pepperl+Fuchs function reliably even under harsh ambient conditions, while still offering a high level of flexibility.The F190 UHF read/write head has been a hit on the market for two years now. The device is designed to be the ideal solution to potentially problematic applications where the installation space is limited and for which read distances of 1 m to 2 m are sufficient. It is precisely these functions that are increasingly in demand within the framework of Industry 4.0—a development stage that requires identification as early as during production processes and not after products have been completed in the subsequent logistics chain, as was the case previously.

World's smallest ultrasonic sensor
The UMB800 from Pepperl+Fuchs is the world's smallest ultrasonic sensor in solid stainless steel. It is made entirely from FDA-compliant materials. With its large detection range and highly compact design, it opens up new automation possibilities in hygienic applications.The new sensors in the UMB800 series feature hygienic housing that is made entirely from V4A stainless steel. The surface roughness of the housing is less than 0.8µm, minimizing the risk of microbial contamination. The outer skin is hermetically sealed and free from gaps. The sensor can withstand steam jet treatment and aggressive cleaning agents. It features IP68/IP69K degrees of protection and ECOLAB certification. No cleaning processes need to be changed when the sensor is installed in existing systems.

KE5 AS-Interface Module with Push-in Front Connector

KE5 AS-Interface Module with Push-in Front Connector
Pepperl+Fuchs is setting a new and innovative standard for AS-Interface IP20 modules in the form of an easily accessible push-in connection at the front of the device. The crimped wire ends can be inserted directly into the push-in terminals. The entire wiring harness is guided downward, meaning there is no need for the upper cable ridge/cable duct. This not only provides a sophisticated solution for the switch cabinet wiring, but also saves on space and ensures clarity. In switch boxes, modules featuring this connection can be mounted flush on the upper edge of a switch box, without impairing the installation. The transparent hinged cover, which can be snapped into place at multiple points, ensures a clear view through to the digit display at all times and enables the terminal functions to be color-coded internally. The terminals can be removed individually and are coded to prevent them from being mixed up, meaning devices can be replaced without any problems.

R2000 Detection 2D-laser scanner offers the performance of a long-range scanner and the simplicity of a sensor

R2000 Detection 2D-laser scanner offers the performance of a long-range scanner and the simplicity of a sensor
Taking full advantage of Pepperl+Fuchs' powerful Pulse Ranging Technology (PRT), the R2000 Detection scanner is the ideal solution for demanding field monitoring applications and assistance systems. Empty bay detection and gap recognition are as easily accomplished as the detection of overhanging and interfering products in high-speed AS/RS applications. Assistance systems for collision avoidance in both automatic guided vehicles or manually controlled forklifts and tuggers are another class of applications where the PRT-enabled R2000 Detection offers outstanding features and performance.
