Encoder and measuring wheel solution

March 2006 Sensors & Transducers

An integrated encoder and spring loaded measuring wheel assembly is now available in one, easy-to-use, compact unit. The new LSM is a versatile solution for tracking velocity, position, or distance over a wide variety of surfaces in almost any application. Its spring-loaded torsion arm provides a simple-to-adjust torsion load, allowing the LSM to be mounted in almost any orientation, even upside-down.

The threaded shaft on the pivot axis is field-reversible providing mounting access from either side. The LSM housing is a durable, conductive composite material that will eliminate static build up. With operating speeds up to 30,5 m/s and a wide variety of configuration options, the LSM is a suitable solution for many applications. Common applications include: Web tension control, paper monitoring, glue dispensing, linear material monitoring, conveyor systems, printing, labelling, and document handling.
