Siemens announces Sitrans WS300 speed sensor
With four resolutions offered (32, 256, 1000 and 2000 pulses per revolution), the sensor can accurately monitor from low- to high-speed applications. Additionally, at only 1.22 kilogram (2.68 lbs) weight, the Sitrans WS300 is one of the lightest sensors for monitoring conveyor belt speed in the market. Its low weight prolongs bearing life, reducing the overall cost of ownership.
Designed with a rugged, cast aluminum housing, the new sensor is suitable for heavy industries as well as for outdoor installation. Sitrans WS300 is also available in stainless steel for harsh and food processing applications. The sensor has hazardous dust approvals, IP65 and NEMA 4X, suiting any industry – from mineral processing and cement industry to food and chemical applications.
Sitrans WS300 can be directly coupled to a rotating tail or bend pulley shaft, ensuring accurate belt-travel readout and eliminating problems caused by belt slippage or material build-up. The new sensor monitors belt speed and can be used as an input to an integrator, which calculates flow rate, totalized weight, belt loading and belt speed.
