Pepperl+Fuchs F1 Compact Inductive Sensor



The Pepperl+Fuchs compact F1 inductive sensor monitors the critical areas on a transport conveyor at a mechanical stopper. The sensor checks for the presence of tool carriers near the stopper and at the transfer unit to prevent any accidental collisions. This use of the F1 inductive sensor ensures smooth operation and minimizes conveyor downtime.
Pepperl+Fuchs SBL8 Photoelectric Sensor

Pepperl+Fuchs SBL8 photoelectric sensors prevent product damage caused by a congested conveyor.

In this application, a queue leads to a roller conveyor. In this queue, it is important that the containers are transported without pressure, which means that one container must not push on the one in front.

The SBL8-H roller conveyor control with backround suppression, located directly between the rollers of the conveyor, prevents piece goods from colliding. Direct control of valves as well as cascading of several sensors is possible.

These sensors are optionally equipped with a magnetic valve to control material flow directly. By linking the voltage supply, the electric signal and the compressed air, the installation outlay is minimal.

Electroplating with Pepperl+Fuchs WCS Position Encoding System

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.

Overhead monorails, conveyors, cranes, automated storage and retrieval systems…even elevators and theater stage lighting systems can raise their performance to new levels with the WCS.

In this application, transport cars move along a line and take the product to be galvanized to the corresponding dip tank. Even under these adverse ambient conditions with aggressive vapors and high temperatures, the WCS position encoding system performs consistently and accurately.
