Comtrol’s technologies will complement Pepperl+Fuchs’ portfolio of Sensorik4.0® sensor solutions and interface technologies that includes AS-Interface, IO-Link masters, and industrial connectivity. Expanding its offering of Ethernet communication products and field-interfacing devices ties into Pepperl+Fuchs’ Industry 4.0 strategy and will allow the company to provide even more solutions that close the gap between field devices and the control level.

To ensure that Comtrol customers will be able to source products and conduct business as usual, a new company, Pepperl+Fuchs Comtrol Inc., has been established. Pepperl+Fuchs Comtrol Inc. remains located in Minneapolis. With the integration of Pepperl+Fuchs Comtrol Inc. into the Pepperl+Fuchs Group, Comtrol customers will benefit from the group’s global reach and gain access to additional automation technologies.
