Compensating rollers are used, for example, in print shops to compensate for fluctuations in the web tension of printing paper. The position of the compensating roller is determined either in a linear or rotational manner. Depending on the design of the machine, the recommended products are our magnetostrictive linear sensors (from the OMS2 series) for linear detection or our Hall-effect angle sensors (from the MAB22AH series) for rotational detection. Both sensor types support wear-free and dust-proof operation, making them highly durable. The rotary shaft encoders and displacement sensors are seated in a metal housing and thus comply with a high protection class. In addition, the robust sensor design means they are capable of withstanding numerous oscillating movements. The connectors of both sensors are also adapted to environmental requirements: The OMS2 series displacement sensors are equipped with a robust plug connector, and the MAB22AH series rotary shaft encoders are connected using a strain-relieved round cable.
All in all, the displacement and angle sensors are not susceptible to environmental stress. As such, they greatly contribute to smooth, reliable and long-lived system operation.
Our contribution to the application
- Sensor technology with a long service life, thanks to robust design and a wear-free sensor principle
- Sensors are not affected by environmental stress
