Press Release Summary:
Optical Barcode Positioning System BPS 34/37 incorporates flexible, hard wearing barcode tape, which allows system to determine its position with +1 mm accuracy. Unit utilizes visible red light laser to read barcodes, then ascertains position of that code and reports position back to evaluation unit via integrated SSI or Profibus DP interface. With contactless scanning distance from 60 to 140 mm, there is no wear.

Leuze - Lumiflex: BPS 34/37
Bar-code Positioning System
Leuze-Lumiflexs new Optical Barcode Positioning system BPS 34/37 is no longer limited to linear movements. With its flexible, hard wearing barcode tape the system can determine its position on curved or non-linear surfaces and accurately transmit data back to a positioning unit with an accuracy of approximately ±1mm. The BPS 34/37 utilizes a visible red light laser to read the barcode, then ascertains the position of that code and reports back the position to an evaluation unit. With a contactless scanning distance from 60 to 140 mm there is absolutely no wear and mounting the system is exceptionally easy. Position data is transmitted to the evaluation unit via integrated SSI or Profibus DP interface making the BPS 34/37 perfectly suited for applications where storage, cranes, overhead conveying, transfer or lifting units are needed.
