Pepperl+Fuchs: Standardized Digital Access to Product Information for K-System and H-System


August 2, 2022

Installation and maintenance procedures in process plants should be carried out precisely and safely, but at the same time as quickly as possible. Manual searches often prove to be a costly and time-consuming obstacle, for example when the required product documentation is not immediately available or information from different manufacturers is available in different formats.

As a member of the Digital Data Chain (DDC) consortium, Pepperl+Fuchs is actively helping to solve this problem: Users of the well-known “K-System” and “H-System” interface module series will find QR codes on numerous representatives of these series (KC*, KF*, HIC* plus associated termination boards) in the future.

This represents another important step on the way to fully digitizing the Pepperl+Fuchs portfolio.

Open Front Flap, Scan Code, Access Information

If such a QR code is scanned with a smartphone or tablet after lifting the front flap of the module, a website opens that displays both the product documentation and standardized device-specific data (in accordance with DIN SPEC 91406 or IEC 61406) such as the serial number or the year of manufacture.

In the future, users will benefit from time- and location-independent access to comprehensive device information without having to carry around product documentation in paper form. In addition, the product information can be automatically displayed in the relevant language variant.


  •    –   Quick and easy exchange of information
  •    –   Compliant with DIN SPEC 91406 and IEC 61406
  •    –   Correct identification of products in plants
  •    –   Fast access to product documentation
  •    –   Reduced carrying effort
  •    –   Location, time and language-independent display
