Proton launches mini laser Doppler non-contact speed, length sensors
Proton Products International, Lebanon Borough, NJ, says its new, smart, compact InteliSENS SL/SLR Mini Series sensors are designed to replace cumbersome, inaccurate, high-wear speed and length measurement devices used in the web industries.
Proton says that conventional contacting sensors are prone to excessive measurement errors due to slippage, vibration, wear and dirt accumulation, resulting in product give-away, production losses and non-conformance to specifications.
The company says the InteliSENS SL/SLR Mini Series has the smallest footprint on the market and provides a direct replacement for conventional encoders. Installation is simple and the sensor’s size can also permit speed and length measurements from parts of a process that were previously unobtainable.
The solid-state devices have no moving parts for maintenance-free operation. Their non-contact measurement technique provides accuracy better than 0.05%, typically 0.02% with CEMID certified versions available.
Standard are intelligent, easy-to-integrate capabilities that feature a broad range of embedded process interfaces including Ethernet, RS-232 and Wi-Fi communications with optional PROFIBUS, PROFINET, DeviceNet and Industrial Protocol IP that can be substituted for the Ethernet communications interface.
