Speed Sensor SITRANS WS100
SITRANS WS100 speed sensor is a compact, medium-resolution, pulley shaft-driven belt speed sensor with magnetic mounting. It is ideal for aggregate and mineral processing industries.
SITRANS WS100 speed sensor operates in conjunction with a conveyor belt scale, providing a signal to an integrator (Milltronics BW100 or BW500, or SIWAREX FTC module) which computes the rate of material being conveyed. It is lightweight at 1.22 kg (2.68 lbs) and durable, for easy installation and prolonged bearing life.
The WS100 converts shaft rotation into a pulse train of 8 pulses per revolution. These pulses are typically fed into a Milltronics belt scale integrator. The integrator interprets the pulses and uses them in the calculation of belt speed, flow rate, and material totalization. In non-belt scale applications, the WS100 can be used to monitor rotational speed when directly connected to a PLC.
The WS100 IS (Intrinsically Safe) version contains an inductive proximity switch which transmits the pulses via a Switch Isolator for hazardous area locations.
- Small, light-weight
- Good resolution for accurate measurement, suitable for varying shaft speeds
- Long bearing life
