Pepperl+Fuchs has developed a new generation of positioning systems that achieve SIL 3/PLe compliance with a single sensor.
The safePGV and safePXV systems achieve maximum safety in the form of a single-sensor positioning system. This new generation of security solutions is based the reliable combination of a 2-D reader and Data Matrix code.
The safePXV positioning system offers unparalleled reliability for linear absolute positioning. Due to its easy handling, the system is suitable for a variety of applications, such as ensuring exact positioning of monorail conveyors in a production line. Additionally, it can be used for stacker cranes in material handling, rotary tables, elevators and skillets.
New firmware controls LED colors with a safe-rated algorithm.
Larger scan window measures 120 mm x 80 mm.
Performs continuous self-checks.
Provides multiple levels of redundancy.
