Condition monitoring of brake pads in wind power generators using inductive distance sensors
Reliable measurement and monitoring of the diameter of material rolls using a photoelectric sensor
One of the most common tasks for sensors
Is your challenge to measure the distance to an object automatically and with precision? Then our distance sensors will help. When selecting the right sensor we recommend taking into account the range of the sensor and the type of object to be measured. The measuring ranges can be anything from a few millimeters to several meters.
Disk brakes are used at various locations in wind power plants. With their durability and precise measurement, inductive distance sensors monitor these brake disks continuously and provide a timely warning if the brake linings need to be changed.
In winding and unwinding equipment a photoelectric sensor continuously measures the increasing or decreasing roll diameter. Regardless of roll material or color. This means the rolls can be changed with minimal stoppages.
Distance measurement is a common task for sensors. Various kinds of sensors are used in industry which vary in their technical principles:
