Proton Products InteliSENS® SLR Series non-contact, bidirectional speed and length gauges provide extremely accurate speed and length measurements in almost any production environment.
Automatic direction detection and measurement down to zero speed means that the InteliSENS® SLR gauge length measurement counts both up and down, so final length measurements will still be accurate to 0.05% even with production lines that exhibit stoppage, direction reversal and creepage.
Production processes for wire, cable, web products, woven and non-woven materials, paper, plastic film, tapes, building materials, floorings and labelling can all be measured using the laser Doppler method.
Applications requiring a precise cut-to-length process benefit from the non-slip and highly accurate laser measurement technique which reduces scrap, increases uptime and improves material yield by eliminating product “Give Away” or “Short Length” claims.
InteliSENS® SLR Series gauges are money-saving, direct replacements for traditional problematic and high-maintenance contact wheel and roller-type devices and are extremely easy to install and operate. Integration with production line controllers such as PLCs is eased by the availability of a wide variety of industry standard communications interfaces.
