Operating principle of speed sensors
Many motion applications in the industrial automation field are based on a rotating shaft or drive. When this is the case, there are many ways to track the speed of your application. One of the most common is over/under speed monitoring. A sensor counts the rotations of a driveshaft and delivers the signal to your controls system where it can be converted into a speed.
There are numerous applications for speed sensors:
- Conveyor shutdown
- Motor speed feedback
- Motor synchronization
- RPM monitoring
Order speed sensors online from Automation24
At Automation24, we offer speed sensors at low prices available online from ifm efector. The offered range of speed sensors includes a selection of units suiting a wide range of applications, like compact speed monitor ifm efector DI0101 - DIA2010-ZROA/5-3600 I/MIN, with 20-250 V AC/DC operating voltage and 5-3,600 pulses/min setting range. If for some reason one of the units in this category doesn’t suit your application, many standard inductive sensors can be used in conjunction with a cabinet mounted speed monitor. In addition, Automation24 also offers incremental encoders with speed monitoring capabilities, like the incremental encoder ifm efector RVP510, capable of monitoring speeds up to 9999 RPM!
