The rugged and maintenance-free SPEETEC laser surface motion sensor detects the movement of the surface of a target object without any physical contact. The laser Doppler effect-based technology of this contact-free sensor allows it to measure the speed, length, movement direction and the position of objects of almost any surface type.
Delicate Materials? No problem…
Dependable and gentle, the non-contact measurement method used by the sensor makes it particularly suitable for applications with soft or sensitive surfaces that would be damaged by conventional wheel measurement processes. The SPEETEC is also the ideal solution for use in encoder-based applications that feature fast and dynamic processes that are physically unsuitable for encoders to be used effectively.
- Non-contact measurement speed, length and position of objects without measuring elements
- Compatible with multiple materials, colours and surfaces
- Very high measurement accuracy and repeatability
- Laser class 1
- Rugged design, compact dimensions, low weight
- Standardised communication interface
- Speed – up to 10 m/s
Contact Free and Easy to Integrate
As the SPEETEC Sensor measures without making physical contact, it enables new applications in automation where direct measurements on sensitive and soft surfaces needs to be avoided due to damage that could be caused by full contact methods.
Thanks to the compact dimensions and the standardised communication interfaces it’s easy to integrate the SPEETEC into new or existing plant and they are simple to set-up and install, requiring no specialist support equipment.
Utilising an infrared class 1 laser, these dependable non-contact sensors require no additional protective or specialist devices during operation, such as safety glasses or protective housings, and no special safety training for staff is required.
The capable infrared class 1 laser utilised in this sensor delivers exact speed values of up to 10 m/s with very high repeatability. Whether endless materials or individual production pieces, the high-resolution laser enables a maximum resolution of 4 µm and, on a one metre path, the sensor measures material lengths down to the final millimetre. Superbly reliable, these contact free sensors are perfect for a wealth of applications in countless industrial applications.
The laser-based technology also prevents contamination on the material surface to be measured and in addition, the laser is wear-free, this helps maintain process reliability with minimal maintenance downtime and associated costs.
Perfect for Speed and length measurement in a packaging process with simple electrical and mechanical integration, without damaging and abrading material with a measuring wheel.
Non-contact and precise speed and length measurement directly on the rubber or other soft and slippery materials, eliminates slipping.
The production of plasterboard requires a very high level of quality and the fast production processes involved depend upon on a reliable measurement to ensure the standard dimensions of the plasterboard is maintained.
Speed measurement directly on the object being printed upon without damaging its sensitive surface and with a high signal quality and resolution, the SPEETEC sensor helps delivers optimal print results.
Quality control for cutting processes through automated 100 % length measurement directly on the material with enhanced process control and analysis.
The non-contact motion sensor measures the speed and length of fabric sheets optically. Inaccuracies caused by slippage or impairment of the product are no longer a problem.
