Current Loop output

Works with NPN or PNP prox sensors

 

FEATURES  
                Three wire current loop (4-20 mA) output
  10 - 5000  RPM range
  Low cost speed measurement for PLCs and control systems
  Works with PNP or NPN proximity sensors
  Programmable set 4-20mA output for desired speed range 
  Reverse polarity protected
  3.5mA output for Zero Speed condition (no pulses for over 10 seconds)

 

THEORY OF OPERATION
The Speed Monitor requires a source of electronic pulses from a sensor. The timing of the pulses is calculated by a microprocessor. The microprocessor takes previously programmed information (such as the number of pulses per revolution) and scales the output to drive a 4-20mA output signal. The Speed Sentry allows the output to be programmed for a range that is significant to the user. For example if a user is only interested in a range of 100-500 RPM, the Speed Sentry can be scaled so that 4ma = 100RPM and 20mA =500RPM

The Speed Sentry can be factory programmed or programmed by the user with the USB programming accessory and a Hyper terminal software utility like Windows Hyper Terminal or the free Real Terminal program.

APPLICATIONS    
    The use of an NPN or PNP proximity sensor is a common way to measure rotational speed using gear teeth.
  A laser ranging sensor can be used to detect irregular surfaces such as a bevel gear teeth.
  A hose clamp can be used with a proximity sensor to produce pulses from shaft rotation.
  Many liquid flow sensors produce pulses proportional to the volume of fluid such that a flow rate can be calculated for process control.
  While the major use of the Speed Sentry is rotational (RPM) speed measurement, even a linear source of pulses can be used to provide a measurement system an indication of process speed and rate.
  Weather measurement devices such as an anemometer also often provide a pulse stream that is proportional to speed.

Design considerations

The Speed Sentry is a low cost way to convert speed and rate information into an analog 4-20mA output for a PLC, process control meter, distributed control system (DCS), or other industrial control system. 

The Speed Sentry should not be used as the sole sensing element in critical equipment or safety applications.
