Image processing is one of the most crucial and challenging sensor technologies of the future. Until recently, integrating vision sensors into practical applications was difficult and extremely expensive. Today, vision sensors can be implemented in a wide variety of industries and applications, offering cost advantages over standard solutions in difficult sensing environments.
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.
Inclination and Acceleration Sensors
Whether they are leveling cranes, monitoring front-loader tilt, or controlling elevators – the fields of application for inclination and acceleration sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs are many. They ensure precise measurements, also in harsh outdoor 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 the concept allows the quick and easy exchange of the sensor module, if needed. Since the bracket can stay in place, there is no need for new adjustment or calibration
