Product Portfolio
  • Draw Wire Sensors

  • Draw wire sensors are low-cost, compact sensors which accurately measure the position or change in position of objects. Core components of a draw wire sensor are a precision measuring wire and a sensor element (e.g. potentiometer or encoder), which convert the path change into a proportional electrical signal. The maintenance-free draw wires are particularly quick and easy to assemble and are used because of their reliability in all areas of industry.

            • Non-contact Inductive Sensors

            • Non-contact inductive sensors generate a high-frequency electromagnetic field. Eddy currents are generated in metallic measuring objects within this field, which lead to a change in inductance. This distortion of the inductance is in turn influenced by the distance, the material and the size of the object. The sensor detects the change in inductance and converts it into a proportional output signal.

              • Eddy Current Sensors

              • The distance, the position or the change of position of an electrically conductive material can be detected contactless and wear-free by an eddy current sensor. A high-frequency alternating current feeds a coil in the sensor head. The resulting electromagnetic field induces an eddy current in the material to be measured, perpendicular to the excitation field. The resulting change in the AC resistance of the coil is directly proportional to the distance of the sensor from the target material.

                    • Ultrasonic sensors measure without contact the distance to the measurement object, regardless of color and material. Ultrasound is a high-frequency oscillation emitted by the sensor, which is reflected on the measurement object and is received back in the form of an echo. From the travel time of the sound, the sensor calculates an analog output signal proportional to the distance. A classic application for ultrasonic sensors is level measurement.

                      • The capacitive measurement principle was invented more than 40 years ago and has proved its effectiveness ane reliability in innumerable applications. The capacity of a capacitor is influenced by the distance of its electrodes. This correlation can be used for the distance measurement. The sensor heads measure without contact and with an extremely high resolution the distance to conductive targets. The connected electronics display the measurement result directly on a meter (KS series). All electronics provide an analog output signal, proportional to the measured distance, that can be used for further processing. The capacitive probes provide reliable results even under extreme conditions, like in nuclear radiation, close to 0 K, or in high vacuum applications.

                                  • Velocity sensors by WayCon developed for industrial applications measure the distance travelled per time unit. Velocity is measured in a linear manner on an axis, where the sensor emits a signal proportionate to the speed. Like distance sensors, velocity sensors are subject to various physical measurement principles which have their strengths and weaknesses.

                                    Speed sensors particularly serve to monitor travel distances in automated processes, such as for cranes, supplying significant information that is vital to automated warehouse management. Speed sensors are also utilised in numerous other areas, including the paper industry, to measure the differential speed between stock flow and sieve.
