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.
