Smith Systems, Inc features 3 types of active speed sensors:

  • Standard Digital Speed Sensor
  • Zero Speed Sensors
  • Proximity Speed Sensors

Smith Systems, Inc. is a company committed to meeting your unique requirements. We are here to assist with your integration of sensors into end products and systems. Whether the use is in process controls, aircraft gas turbine engines, critical speed controls and braking systems of rail cars, or in remote unmanned pumping and power generating stations. Smith Systems, Inc. can provide cost effective sensor solutions to meet your special application needs with quality and reliability designed into them.

The standard digital sensors are passive sensors with integrated signal conditioning for operation in the 5 to 30 KHz range. Zero speed sensors utilize a special sensing element for operation in the 0 to 20 KHz range and for wide air gaps. Proximity sensors are used for detecting ferrous and non-ferrous metal. The typical operating frequency range for a proximity sensor is 0 to 2 KHz.

Smith Digi-Tran ® speed sensors are available in a variety of housing configurations and terminations. Housing configurations to accommodate applications with high pressure and fluid submersion are available. These sensors are designed to accommodate a broad spectrum of temperatures and are resistant to oil, dirt and moisture.
