InteliSENS® SLM-i4

SPEED & LENGTH MEASUREMENT

Proton Products InteliSENS® SLM-i4 Series non-contact, unidirectional speed and length gauges provide extremely accurate speed and length measurements for metals industry applications. They are available with extended stand-off distances and greater depth-of-fields than the standard InteliSENS® SL Series gauges, which allows them to be used to measure very high temperature objects such as in hot-rolling processes.

Applications requiring a precise cut-to-length process benefit from the non-slip and highly accurate laser measurement technique which reduces scrap, increases uptime and improves material yield by eliminating product “Give Away” or “Short Length” claims.

Focused on connectivity the SLM-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
  • Pulse outputs like your encoder
  • Incredibly small and easy to install
  • Stand Alone Measuring Device or Fully Integrated to PLC
  • No Slip, No Wear, No Marking
  • Industry 4.0 Data Communications
