Your Identification Specialist

For Pepperl+Fuchs, the invention of the inductive proximity sensor in 1958 marked the starting point of countless innovations in the field of electromagnetic sensors, leading to Pepperl+Fuchs’ first industrialized RFID system in 1988.

Over the last 30 years we added ident systems based on next generation frequencies and improved their performance and connectivity. At the same time we created a large spectrum of customized ident solutions.

  • RFID, Barcode, Data Matrix Code and Vision Systems, also for hazardous areas
  • Support of all common frequency bands LF, HF and UHF by a variety of read/write heads
  • Customer-specific developments

The two basic requirements of Industry 4.0 are digitalization and connectivity. The Pepperl+Fuchs ident systems turn passive objects into digital entities and connect them into the industrial Internet of Things.
