Velocity sensors are used, for example, to measure the stroke of cranes and provide important information that is crucial for modern warehouse management. But also in non-fully automated systems, velocity sensors provide drivers of forklifts or cranes with additional information that increases safety.
The VX series detects travel speeds in the range of 0.005 to 10 m/s over a length of up to 42.5 m. The sensors achieve an accuracy of ±1 %. The velocity sensors are equipped with a self-sufficient tachometer and therefore do not require an external power supply. The speed information is provided by the sensor as a volt signal and can be processed in a controller or visualized by means of a display. With a temperature range of -20 to +85 °C, a protection class of up to IP67 and optional additional corrosion protection, the velocity sensors are suitable for numerous applications in industry and research.
