The InteliSENS® SLmini-i4 non-contact speed and length measurement gauge is ideal for flat surface products in “roll to roll” or “cut to length” processes. Paper, Film, Foil, Wovens, Non-Wovens, Textiles, Roofing, Sidings, Gypsum Board are just a few examples. Applications, where speed measurement is critical for drive control or where length measurement is critical for product quality, will benefit from the increased accuracy of Laser Doppler Speed and Length Measurement.

Focused on connectivity the SLmini-i4 Smart Sensor with 32bit communications comes preloaded with Profibus, Profinet, and Ethernet Industrial Protocol for your PLC connection. Modbus, OPC-UA, RS232, RS485, and WiFi round out a wide range of digital communications for your Industry 4.0 Solution.

  • No Moving Parts, Increased Reliability and MTBF
  • No Slip, No Wear, No Marking of the product being measured
  • Incredibly small and easy to install
  • Pulse outputs like your encoder
  • Stand Alone Measuring Device or Fully Integrated to PLC
  • Industry 4.0 Data Communications
