InteliSENS® SLmini-i4 W

Speed & Length Measurement

The InteliSENS® SLmini-i4 W Series non-contact speed and length measurement gauge has a wide angle lens making it ideal for the measurement of curved surface products in “roll to roll” or “cut to length” processes. Wire, Cable, Hose, Tube, Pipe are good 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 W 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 your product
  • 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
