Precision Speed and Length Measurement (down to Zero) Laser Surface Velocimeters LSV 1000 / 2000

Zumbach Electronics presents new, high-tech length and speed measuring gauges.

Precision speed and length measurements are critical for optimization of continuous or quasi-continuous production processes. Proper utilization of these measurements can lead to lower production costs and higher product quality. The ideal sensor must exceed traditional contact encoder performance, increasing reliability and accuracy while minimizing maintenance requirements and material yield.

LSV 2000 Velocimeter

The LSV Laser Surface Velocimeters have been designed as the ideal next generation sensors for non-contact length and speed measurement. They provide precise length and velocity data quickly and reliably for both process control and cut-to-length applications.

The LSV 1000/2000 measure reliably on almost any solid surface, whether controlling processes utilizing carbon steel, shiny aluminium or oily sheets, or producing round wire and cable, or manufacturing paper, cardboard or tissue.

Benefits / Advantages / Main Features

  • Zero speed, direction detection (model LSV 2000 only)
  • Reduced operating and maintenance costs
  • Attractive ROI, fast payback
  • All-in-one system, easy integration into production processes and control environments
  • Easy to operate and no re-calibration required
  • Visible laser for easy alignment in the field
  • Robust sensor technology for reliable operation even under harsh conditions, protection classes IP 66 and IP 67
  • Fast, state-of-the-art signal processor with powerful command set for efficient system communication via serial or Ethernet interface
  • Includes two trigger inputs for additional light barriers or optical switches for high precision edge detection and offset length compensation
  • Hardware status signals for remote diagnostic functions available

User-selectable full quadrature pulse output and interfacing as LAN & RS 422/232

Additional Info

ZUMBACH ELECTRONICS is one of the leading manufacturer of in-line measuring, monitoring and control systems for the wire and cable industry, (from wire drawing to fiber optics, including extrusion of insulation and jackets), for plastic extrusion lines (mono filaments, catheter, tubing, pipe or profiles) and for the metal industry (hot and cold rolling, continuous casting, turning, grinding, polishing to QC inspection stations).

ZUMBACH instruments measure diameter (Laser Micrometers), wall thickness and concentricity (ultrasonic or eddy current principle), and detect lumps/neckdowns (optical flaw detectors). Specialized sensors monitor the capacitance of data wires and coaxial cables. - Controllers with application specific algorithms shorten start-up times, minimize scrap production and material usage. Data acquisition and FFT analysis are offered as well. A line of inductive preheaters for metal conductors, spark testers for in-line testing of the dielectric, optical surface inspection system, and in-line profile monitoring systems complete the ZUMBACH line of industrial precision equipment.
