In many industrial applications drives need to be monitored for rotational speed or standstill. In the automotive, food, beverage, steel and mining industries, speed sensors are used to reliably detect standstill, overspeed and underspeed of drives or belt break on conveyors.
The compact speed monitors of the DI series integrate rotational speed detection and monitoring in one unit. The sensor head operates on the inductive sensing principle. The sensor detects metal actuating surfaces on rotating machine parts, e.g. on toothed wheels or camshafts. The integrated evaluation converts this information into rotational speed.Parameters are set via IO-Link.
