Leuze Electronic’s bar code positioning systems have been expanded with the addition of the BPS8 model.

The BPS8 measuring system provides positioning information with millimetre accuracy on runs of up to six miles.

Optical measurement techniques are suitable 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 bar code positioning systems (BPS) enable positions to be determined along horizontal and vertical paths.

Using a visible red light laser, the measuring unit of the BPS reads its position from a bar code tape, determining its position from the code value.

The unit’s large scanning distance compensates for mechanical tolerances and copes easily with bends along a production line.

The systems can be interfaced with numerous control systems, including Profibus and SSI, providing economic solutions in industrial environments.

Complementing its BPS34 and 37, Leuze Electronic has developed the BPS8 model to expand the applications for bar code positioning systems.

In its basic configuration, the BPS8 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 an RS485 interface.

Enclosed in a small, robust metal housing, the BPS8 device is an IP67 unit, aiding its installation in a variety of applications and industries.
