PROTON Announces Measurement Tool

BUCKINGHAMSHIRE, UK | PROTON PRODUCTS, global supplier of non-contact laser Doppler speed and length sensors, says the InteliSENS mini Series non-contact laser Doppler speed and length sensors deliver the highest product performance currently available, based on technical specifications, design, intelligence, and process interfacing. 

Company says the product’s Doppler non-contact speed and length sensor replaces contacting encoders that encounter slippage, wear, and marking. Accurate speed and length measurement helps prevent product give-away or short-length delivery, which translates into financial benefits across a wide range of applications.

The InteliSENS SL and SLR mini Series provide both unidirectional and bidirectional speed measurement to 5,000 mpm with the latter being able to measure from a standstill. With a measurement repeatability of ±0.02% and an accuracy of better than ±0.05%, it assures correct final product length delivery to the customer. In situations in which the product acceleration exceeds 1,000 mpm, the InteliSENS mini’s measurement update rate of 200kHz reportedly makes it the fastest on the market, capable of delivering accurate, high-resolution measurement under rapidly changing process conditions.

Standard protocols include RS232, Ethernet TCP/IP, and CANbus with PROFINET, PROFIBUS, DeviceNet, Ethernet /IP, and WIFI as options. This capability produces straightforward communications to instrumentation platforms with the ability to deliver large volumes of data for maintenance diagnostics, plus process analysis, reporting, and archiving on plantwide information platforms.

Said to be easily installed in tight process locations and includes an integrated display for immediate on-line visual reference.

A comprehensive range of integrated process interfaces are available for measurement and control purposes. Three programmable 24Vdc digital inputs are available for length, speed, direction, and pause functions. Two programmable 30Vdc, 100mA (max) digital outputs can be configured for measurement and preset length outputs (to a downstream cutter, for example) with opto-isolated relays. Two pulse outputs are available, plus a shutter status outputs (30Vdc/100mA max) to opto-isolated relays for alarming purposes.
