PEPPERL + FUCHS INDUSTRIAL VISION


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.

The available devices and systems range from barcode imagers to vision sensors and system solutions that are adapted to the application requirements. The complexity of the solution and the cost of integration vary with each use. Each technology has advantages that are best suited for the application at hand.

As one of the few suppliers of industrial vision systems, we can accommodate a wide variety of image processing requirements for machine builders as well as for unique system solutions in plant engineering. We offer integrated vision sensor solutions that range from freely programmable devices to user-specific, custom-designed devices.For individual systems with demanding requirements, we provide customer-specific system solutions through our subsidiary, VMT GmbH. Our partnership with VMT enables Pepperl+Fuchs to offer the whole range of industrial image processing from vision sensors via smart cameras to a complete system.

New Reduction Factor 1 Sensors with IO-Link Combine Benefits of Two Technologies

Reduction factor 1 sensors unify switching distances for all types of metals.

Plant designers have long had to use different types of sensors or deal with time-consuming reconfiguration when tasked with detecting objects made of different types of metal. Standard inductive sensors can only detect different metal targets when the switching distance is reduced. This is due to reduction factors that vary from one metal to another. Reduction factor 1 sensors circumvent this issue and unify switching distances for all types of metals. As the inventor of the world’s first inductive proximity sensor, Pepperl+Fuchs has extended its portfolio to include reduction factor 1 sensors with IO-Link, providing users with even more flexibility, additional features, and diagnostic options.
