In many industrial applications it is necessary to monitor drives for rotational speed or standstill, measure speeds, frequencies, distances, angles or positions and display, process and transmit current process values.
In the automotive, food, steel and mining industries, speed sensors are used to safely detect standstill, overspeed and underspeed of drives or belt break on conveyors. On mobile machines such as fork-lift trucks, speed sensors serve as speed pick-ups.
In the materials handling and wood industry, encoders have become established as reliable instruments for position and linear measurement.
Speed monitors allow tailor-made monitoring of slow and fast rotational speeds as well as complex slip, synchronous or direction monitoring.
Multifunctional displays indicate effective values and signal to the controller if limit values are reached or exceeded, or they calculate and display speeds, quantities and processing times.
