Off-the-shelf Speed/Distance Monitoring Systems.
Speed or Distance monitoring systems are now available from
A system consists of an encoder, a drive drum, a mounting bracket and
a digital readout. The encoder is mounted so that the drive drum is in
contact with the part or web to be monitored. As the drum rotates, due
to the movement of the part or web, the encoder emits a string of pulses
which are then read by the display and the speed or distance travelled
is calculated and displayed.
From the user's point of view these systems are simplicity itself to apply.
Since they are supplied pre-calibrated all that the user needs to concern
himself with is ensuring that the drum makes a good contact with the
object being monitored so that no slippage occurs.
Typical applications are found in the paper processing and textile
industries as well as in general machine control. Application notes
are supplied with each system.
