Pepperl+Fuchs T-Line Incremental Encoders Available in Standard Inch Shaft and Coupling Sizes

Pepperl+Fuchs T-Line 40 mm Series Incremental Rotary Encoders are now available in standard inch shaft and coupling sizes. These compact, 40 mm diameter (1.57 in.) encoders come standard with an integral 2 meter cable, and provide output resolution up to 1024 ppr in an IP54-rated housing. They require a 4.75 – 30VDC supply voltage. As a result, they are an ideal feedback solution for most light-to-medium duty applications in the material handling, packaging and printing industries, among others. TVI40 solid shaft encoders are available with 1/8 in. and ¼ in. shaft sizes. THI40 hollow shaft encoders are available with 3/16 …

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 …

Pepperl+Fuchs Videos Added to YouTube Channel

We have added the following video presentations from Pepperl+Fuchs to our Steven Engineering YouTube channel: Pepperl+Fuchs Position Indicator with Dual-Sensor F31 Pepperl+Fuchs dual-sensors with either plug-in terminals (model F31) or clamp terminals (model F31K) are used as position indicators for vane drives. With these sensors, the active surfaces are positioned on top of each other. This allows the combination with different types of actuators depending on available shaft diameter and length. This highly flexible system matches the widely used shaft dimensions of 80×30 mm or 130×30 mm and is designed for easy mounting. Pepperl+Fuchs F31 Dual-Sensors with Vane Drives Many …

We have added three new videos from Pepperl+Fuchs to our Steven Engineering YouTube channel: VOS300 Series Vision Sensors At the packaging process of PCBs for digital watches, various evaluation methods offered by the vision sensor series VOS300 are demonstrated. First, the completeness of the PCB outline is checked by the vision sensor method “contour”. Incorrect parts will be eliminated. The complete filling of a blister package is then checked by the method “pattern”. Finally, the presence of the structured QC label is checked with the method “gradient”. Rotary Encoders in Wind Energy Turbines Wind energy turbines adjust to different wind …
