Rapid plant changes for rotating products

Pepperl+Fuchs has recently added a new model to its Smart-Runner range. Like the existing Matcher, the new model specializes in detection tasks using profile comparisons. This process includes detecting the presence, completeness and position of objects. A distinctive feature of the new Matcher is the ability to internally store up to 32 learned profiles. Switching between profiles and all of the corresponding settings is quick and easy thanks to the remote command offered by the integrated RS-485 interface.

This feature is especially useful for businesses that frequently change their plants to account for different products and lots. Another interesting feature is the ability to detect a shift between the taught-in and current position of the object. This output offers important information regarding quality assurance and process safety, and allow defects to be corrected before actual failures arise.

Using the SmartRunner technology, the Matcher can also be parameterized easily using Data Matrix control codes without the need for a PC. Gateways compatible with Profinet, Profibus, EtherCat or EtherNet/IP make it simple to connect the SmartRunner sensors to the latest fieldbus systems.
