Precision Velocity Sensors Reduce Waste and Costs


Hamilton, NJ - INTACTON's COVIDIS velocity sensors provide highly accurate speed and length measurements for production of continuous goods like cable, non-woven's, paper, etc. Based on a unique high-precision, non-contacting optical imaging technology, COVIDIS sensors can measure the velocity of almost any material, regardless of surface texture. The measurable velocity range is 0 to 50 m/s (165 ft/sec) with an accuracy of ±0.05%.

Linear Position Sensors from POSITAL FRABA


Draw wire Sensor:
For the measurement of linear movements or linear displacements, an absolute magnetic rotary encoder can be combined with a draw wire sensor. The contact-free measuring sensor stage of the MCD Sensor didn't have any abrasion. The Sensor can directly connected to digital control units via SSI- or CANopen Interface.
