Avec le système de codeur de position absolue, la société Pepperl+Fuchs met à la disposition de ses clients un système de mesure de position éprouvé pour la technique de manutention.

Le WCS détermine de manière fiable et au millimètre près la localisation du moyen de transport et par conséquent celle où se trouvent les produits transportés. Une coupure de courant n’entrave pas le bon fonctionnement du système WCS.

Le système de codeur de position est constamment remanié et amélioré en étroite collaboration avec les clients. Vous êtes ainsi toujours sur la bonne voie avec le WCS.


  • WCS read heads: A u-shaped read head provides non-contact photoelectric scanning of the code rail.
  • WCS interface modules: A wide range of interface modules are available for connecting the WCS read heads to standard interfaces. Up to four read heads can be connected simultaneously to all but the SSI interface.
  • WCS mechanics: Rugged and flexible code rails are required for read heads to work over a defined distance. Our dirt-resistant code rails are suitable for curved tracks, inclines, etc. Pepperl+Fuchs also offers mounting bracket systems for laying code rails, aluminum profile systems for especially long distances, and a guide trolley to ensure the reader stays on track even in heavy duty vibration applications.

Accessories include:

  • Twisted-pair cable (suitable for drag chains)
  • WCS read head and LM block spare parts
  • Protective housing for retrofitting read head

Benefits:

  • Reliable and precise absolute position detection with the sophisticated position encoding system
  • Reliable position detection even on curved tracks, inclines, declines, lane changes, and gradients
  • Flexible integration due to compatibility with all common control systems
  • IP69 protective housing for use in extreme outdoor applications in shipping ports and electroplating plants
  • Simple setup and error indication: translucent protective housing enables clearly visible LED status indicators and display
