  • General purpose
    • Great for fast, non-contact detection
    • Through-beam, retro-reflective and diffuse mode
  • Slot sensors
    • Detects tiny objects from long distances
    • Frequently used to detect objects on vibrating and oscillating conveyors
    • Slot grid sensors can handle counting and monitoring tasks
      • Detecting non-guided objects in free fall
      • Contrast and color sensors
        • Reliably detect print and color marks
      • Distance sensors
        • Use for measuring and positioning takes
        • Operates using laser triangulation and an analog output
        • VDM sensors use pulse ranging technology (PRT)
          • Long sensing ranges
          • Extremely accurate measurement results
      • Luminescence Sensors DK50-UV series
        • Simple and reliable way to check materials that blend into a background or are invisible
        • Detects ink, pigment, dye, coating and adhesives… even on irregular backgrounds!
      • Safety sensors
        • If your machines perform high-risk movements many regulations must be observed
      • Light grids
        • Ideal for monitoring wider areas
        • Easier to mount, install and align than multiple photoelectric sensors
        • Fiber optic sensors
          • Ideal when direct mounting of sensors is not possible due to space, temperature, etc.
          • Small fiber optic beams are great for detecting tiny objects
        • Specialty sensors
          • Pepperl+Fuchs has a number of industry specific devices

  • Diffuse and retroreflective mode
    • Diffuse mode is most popular, transducer is used as both emitter and receiver (same housing)
    • Can be converted to retroreflective using software parameters
    • Through-beam
      • Extremely powerful acoustic beam
      • Large detection range, compact housing
      • Do not continuously switch between transmission and reception modes
      • Considerable faster, high switching frequencies
    • Double sheet sensors
      • Optimized for sheet feed applications, including double sheet and splice detection as well as label counting
      • Can find empty gaps, one and two layers of material
  • Inductive sensors (used to detect the position of metal objects)
    • Round, slot, square/flatpack, ring
    • 3mm to 30mm diameter
    • Plastic, brass, stainless steel, high-grade steel
  • Capacitive sensors (ideal for liquid level detection, can detect metallic and non-metallic targets)
    • Round or rectangular
    • 3 or 4-wire
    • AC or DC
  • Magnetic field sensors
    • Round or rectangular
    • 2, 3 or 4-wire
    • Stainless steel or plastic
  • Inclination sensors -F99 series
    • Angle feedback for motion control or to detect critical tilt position limits
  • Acceleration sensors
    • Designed for wind power plants to monitor machine vibration
    • Easy to program and very accurate
    • Feedback helps predict machine component wear or unsafe load conditions

Pepperl & Fuchs
Pepperl+Fuchs was founded in 1945 as a small radio workshop in Germany by Walter Pepperl and Ludwig Fuchs.

They eventually invented the proximity switch!

The U.S headquarters was incorporated in 1983 and is located in Twinsburg, Ohio.
