Measuring the conveying speed of a belt conveyor

SICK developed an incremental encoder with measuring wheel system specifically to provide slip-free speed measurements on the belt conveyor or dual belt transport system. This makes controlling the assembly line a breeze. Because the pulse value, electrical interface, and other functions can be freely programmed, the DFS60 incremental encoder in combination with the measuring wheel system can be used in a large number of applications.
