倍加福的 WCS 絕對線性編碼器系統為廣泛的工業和商業應用提供低於毫米級精度的位置回饋。
高架單軌車輛、輸送機、起重機、立體倉庫等，甚至包括電梯和劇院舞臺照明系統，均能藉助 WCS 將其性能提升到新的水準。
For safety applications, Pepperl+Fuchs combines the advantages of the proven WCS positioning system with a safe evaluation unit. The system consisting of the safe evaluation unit (Position Unit Safe, PUS) and two safeWCS/PUS read heads enables safe position and speed detection up to SIL 3 and PL e. The evaluation unit acts as a safe gateway to the fieldbus: It processes the redundant signals from the safeWCS/PUS read heads, creates a safe position value, and derives a safe speed value from it. In addition to the safe and non-safe data, it also transmits diagnostic data. The system supports the common safety protocol Fail Safe over EtherCAT® (FSoE) in order to transmit the acquired data from the sensor to a safe control system.
The WCS position encoding system has been on the market since 1989 and now offers new mounting options such as the WCS Outdoor and WCS Extended ...
