Pepperl+Fuchs modular cable pulls meet a variety of challenges that other sensors simply cannot. Made from a combination of components, they are easily tailored to the exact needs of your application. Environmental resistance, form factor, and disregard for particulates in the air are all qualities that help cable pulls stand alone for tough applications.
In the automation world, many different types of positioning systems are available. Whether mechanical, optical, magnetic, ultrasonic, inductive, camera-based systems, or a combination of technologies, determining which of these is effective for your positioning application is critical to the success of your automated processes.
Rotary encoders are industrial sensors that monitor acceleration, speed, and direction. They compile data on shaft rotation and convert it to an analog or digital output signal. A number of industrial communication protocols are available, including PROFIBUS, EtherNet/IP, and PROFINET. Rotary encoders are used in a wide range of industries, such as machine and plant engineering, material handling, and print/paper.
