Safe with just one sensor

10 October 2022

Leuze has launched what it believes is the world’s first safety bar code positioning system. With the FBPS 600i, only one device is needed for safe position detection.

Traditionally two sensors and two different technologies have been required for position detection. 

The FBPS 600i is connected to a safe evaluation unit, via two SSI interfaces, and is suitable for applications up to performance level e. It has an error reaction time of 10 milliseconds which makes it suitable for position detection when quick movements are involved. Important parameters – such as speed curves and throughput – can be optimised as a result. The sensor’s large working range of between 50 and 170mm also enables flexible integration in different types of systems.

A quick-change system ensures simple mounting of the device, which can be safely secured with an easy-to-access screw on the mounting clamp, offering assembly time savings.
