The new positioning system "Position Guided Vision" (PGV) by Pepperl+Fuchs is the world’s first Data Matrix-based positioning, tracking and control system. Using an advanced industrial 2D camera, the PGV not only guides a carrier along its coded or colored path. It also offers
- an integral identification solution to initiate starts, stops, and turns and
- an absolute encoding system capable of positioning the carrier with sub-millimeter precision.
The system features excellent immunity to dirt, scuffing, and ambient light interference. This ensures maximum uptime and system availability.
