Precise length and speed measurements are critical for process control in the production of steel, aluminum, and other metals. ProSpeed® LSV-1100 and LSV-2100 – the next generation LSV Laser Surface Velocimeters – optimize production processes by providing precise, reliable measurements that increase production throughput and output worldwide in these energy intensive industries.
Sustainability is one of the most highlighted topics in the mission statements of leading companies in the steel and metals industries. Even though steel is one of the worlds most recycled materials, the steel industry is the largest industrial emitter of carbon dioxide. The new ProSpeed® Laser Surface Velocimeters improve process control and production efficiency to meet these statements and goals for sustainable and responsible manufacturing. It’s precise, repeatable, and reliable measurements lead to less scrap and increased throughput by optimizing production processes such as Cut-to-Length at Casters, Plate Shears and Pipe & Tube production, Mass Flow/Elongation in Cold Rolling, Speed Control in Hot Mills and many other processes.
ProSpeed® – the next generation LSV Laser Surface Velocimeters – are essential in optimizing production processes for increased manufacturing output, while improving sustainability. The ProSpeed® LSV-1100 optical sensor measures positive speed/velocity with laser precision. It measures reliably with working distances up to 1.5 m, even under harsh production conditions. Due to the non-contact measurement principle, these laser sensors eliminate common problems of traditional contact-wheel measurement methods such as damage to delicate surfaces, slippage and thermal expansion and work on almost any surface.
Sensor integration and control with enhanced connectivity
The enhanced connectivity of the next generation sensor ProSpeed® LSV-1100 provides access to configuration and process data – anywhere and anytime. Increase your flexibility and get direct feedback through touch display. Easily adjust parameters via web interface and allow concurrent data access through the Ethernet and serial interfaces that support up to four simultaneous users or systems. For automated PLC-controlled processes, the integrated EtherNet/IP and PROFINET interfaces allow an easy integration of the sensors into production control systems.
