- 20 Years of Industrial RFID with Pepperl+Fuchs
- Pepperl+Fuchs customers have been using identification technology to optimize their manufacturing processes for two decades. What started with a proprietary RFID system in the LF range for tool identification at CNC machines has evolved into one of the broadest RFID product portfolios on the market...
- Exotic Ultrasonic Sensors Become a Standard Product
- Industrial ultrasonic sensors for production automation have been available for about 30 years. These large, expensive devices were originally deployed only in special application areas, but today can be found in almost every area of factory automation. As ultrasonic sensors evolved, they became significantly more compact, powerful and less expensive – and this development is far from complete. They promise to open up a whole new range of applications.
- The Future Belongs to IO-Link
- Sensors are continuously evolving with more functionality and intelligence. However, the interface connection to the higher-level control technology has remained unchanged. By collaborating with other companies, Pepperl+Fuchs has set out to create a new standard: IO-Link technology, which opens up new opportunities. In addition to process data, (digital signals or analog measured values) parameter, and diagnostic information can now also be transmitted to and from the sensor via a standardized sensor cable.
