Inductive Sensor Monitors Speed and Acceleration
January 13, 2014
Relying on a unique start-up delay feature that reduces false trips and downtime, SICK’s SAM inductive sensor performs both speed and acceleration monitoring. The component delivers both a raw pulse output and a programmable, discrete switching output. It has a monitoring range of up to 12,000 pulses per minute. To reduce false trips and to account for fast or slow machine start-up times, the SAM offers three modes: no delay, fixed time delay, and upper threshold delay. In addition, integrated monitoring via on-board adjustment tools makes it easy to set parameters and display errors directly.
