Determining the belt speed

When fuel and raw materials are transported on conveyors to storage locations for further processing, the conveyor belt’s speed is very important when it comes to controlling material flow. The DFS60 incremental encoder precisely calculates the speed and running direction of a belt, regardless of whether it is installed on a drive or deflection roller. When monitoring the ends without a drive, reliable feedback can be given to see whether the conveyor system is working correctly. The encoder can either be configured via a PC or a separate programming tool. The DFS60 therefore provides comprehensive programming flexibility for all industrial requirements.
