How is a type code from Pepperl+Fuchs structured?

How Is a Type Code from Pepperl+Fuchs Structured? Our product portfolio of thousands of sensors includes: inductive, capacitive, magnetic field and ultrasonic sensors as well as sensors for special applications. To help you find the right sensor for your applications, we explain below how a type code from Pepperl+Fuchs is composed. Type codes from Pepperl+Fuchs are composed of three categories for the above sensors: In the first category, a distinction is made between functional principles (sensor type), application-specific features (type of use), installation situation (flush/non-flush) and the sensing distance. In the second category, a distinction is made [...]

What Are Industrial Thin Clients? Part 1/2—How It Works

Explosive atmospheres, harsh environments, extreme temperatures—the process industry places unique demands on the people and technology working in the sector. This also applies to thin clients, as they are known in office applications. Unlike traditional PCs, thin clients run applications on remote servers rather than on the local hardware, and only transmit image information and user inputs over the network.
