SICK SPEETEC - a unique laser surface motion sensor that detects the movements of object surfaces without contact. The laser Doppler effect-based technology enables the SPEETEC to measure the speed, length, movement direction, and position of objects on almost any surface.
At a glance:
The SPEETEC non-contact measuring method makes it particularly suitable for solutions with soft, fragile, or sensitive surfaces where tactile measurement could cause damages to the surface.
SPEETEC is also ideal for encoder applications with fast and dynamic processes that are unsuitable for regular rotary encoders.
The SPEETEC measures without wear and delivers reliable and exact values after many thousands of hours of use.
The optical non-contact sensor prevents damage to especially sensitive materials and surfaces, such as thin film, soft rubber, fabric, or insulation material.
From raw signal to standard TTL or HTL incremental output signal:
SICK offers SPEETEC versions with different resolutions or measuring step length (resolution is measurement step (90° electrical))
