Velocity sensors by WayCon developed for industrial applications measure the distance travelled per time unit. Velocity is measured in a linear manner on an axis, where the sensor emits a signal proportionate to the speed. Like distance sensors, velocity sensors are subject to various physical measurement principles which have their strengths and weaknesses.
Speed sensors particularly serve to monitor travel distances in automated processes, such as for cranes, supplying significant information that is vital to automated warehouse management. Speed sensors are also utilised in numerous other areas, including the paper industry, to measure the differential speed between stock flow and sieve.
