Dynamic speed measurement with Smart Sensor Solutions

Two W12-3 small photoelectric sensors mounted at a fixed distance will detect an object very precisely. With the help of Smart Sensor Solutions, it is therefore possible to determine with the utmost precision the duration between the two occupied signals from the sensors without the latency time of the transmission and control. This value is transmitted to the control via IO-Link, where the belt speed is calculated using the known distance value.
