Leuze electronic expands its Barcode Positioning System

Leuze electronic’s innovative barcode positioning systems which is trusted to provide accurate positioning on production and transfer lines up to 6 miles long, has been expanded by the addition of the new, economical and function-optimised BPS8 model.

The new BPS 8 position measuring system from Leuze electronic provides positioning information with millimetre accuracy on runs of up to six miles in a simple, easy to install and maintain unit.

Optical measurement techniques are especially well suited for determining the position of rail-mounted industrial trucks, suspension tracks, crane systems, high-bay storage devices or similar automated systems, because they function without mechanical wear or slippage.

Leuze electronic’s barcode positioning systems (BPS) enable positions to be precisely determined along horizontal and vertical paths. Using a visible red light laser, the measuring unit of the BPS reads its position from a barcode tape, determining its position from the codes value.

The unit’s large scanning distance compensates for mechanical tolerances, and copes easily with bends along a production line for example. The systems can be interfaced with numerous control systems, including PROFIBUS and SSI, providing economic solutions in industrial environments.

Complementing the already proven BPS 34 & 37, Leuze electronic developed the new, economical and function-optimised model, the BPS8 to expand the applications for barcode positioning systems.

In its basic configuration, the new BPS 8 devices transmit the calculated position values to the primary control via an RS232 interface. For use in industrial environments a connector unit (MA 8) can perform level adjustment for the supply voltage, as well as for the switching input and switching output, in addition to providing a RS485 interface. Enclosed in a small, robust metal housing, the new BPS 8 devices is an IP67 unit, aiding its installation in a variety of applications and industries.

Leuze electronic ‘the sensor people’ are committed to being the supplier of choice by providing industry leading customer service and products. The extensive product range and a global presence enables Leuze electronic to serve manufacturers, integrators and end users across many applications and industries.
