Product Announcement from POSITAL - FRABA
Derived from INTACTON's original S and L series of encoders, the SX and LX provide velocity and direction information in both X and Y direction at a very competitive price. Because of their non-contact nature these devices can quickly and easily be integrated into existing systems without interfering with an established process. No expensive couplings or modifications required.
Like the original OPTIPACT sensor the SX and LX maintain their non-contact character and as a result are very low maintenance sensors.
- Detection of direction (AVGs)
- Redundant safety system to confirm that an object is at rest
- Velocity of materials in continuous cycles
- Conveyor belts
Working Principle: Image correlation
