Pepperl+Fuchs announces the new PMI F90 inductive positioning system.
The F90 works with a unique, patented multi-coil system. The absolute position of the actuator is precisely detected from the measuring signals of a single coil. In addition to sending the analog position signal, switch points can also be defined.
The sensor can detect two actuators as well as the distance between them, meaning that dynamic positioning tasks can be completed with the smallest amount of measuring technology.
The device's IO-Link interface enables continuous data flow, making it ideal for Industry 4.0 applications.
Event logs, error messages, signal quality data, device status, and operating hours can all be read directly via an IO-Link master.
Certified versions of the PMI product family allow the system to be used in ATEX Zone 2/22 (3G nA, 3D tc) hazardous locations.
The compact design allows these sensors to be installed in even the tightest of spaces, while the rugged metal housing protects them from external influences.
IP67 protection and a temperature rating of -25 °C to +85 °C ensure reliable positioning in outdoor environments.
