Distance

Measuring distance, often also called displacement describes measuring the distance between 2 points. This distance is defined in the measuring technique by the distance of the sensor from the target. Thus, the distance measurement can also be designated as displacement, distance or position measurement.
Displacement measurements in geometric measuring technology can be found in almost all application areas.
Different criteria are included for the selection of the appropriate sensor for displacement measurements. The frequency of the distance change can be quasi static or high frequency and determines the measuring speed of the sensor.
Contacting / non-contact
Measurement range (displacement change in mm µm)

A truck-mounted crane is frequently the better solution in many cases where loads have to be lifted. As a mobile solution, safety also plays an important role here. Therefore a load torque limiter controls whether the crane can still lift or not. ...

Exact crusher gap adjustment in rotary crushers

Rotary crushers for quarries or ore mines can grind up to 3500 t of material to the desired grain size in one hour. For this purpose an eccentric bearing bush generates a rotary-oscillating movement of the crusher axle, thereby constantly changing ...

Displacement sensor for washing machines

When the washing machine is loaded, the displacement sensor DRA measures how much the outer drum drops. It also measures the drum’s deflection during spin-drying. Due to the inductive measurement principle, the sensor provides absolute position measuring ...

Strip width when trimming metal strips

As different widths are frequently required during the production of metal strips, the strips must be trimmed after the rolling process and both the cutters must be movable electrically. The distance is now measured by difference measurement using laser sensors ...

Lip Gap Measuring in Paper Manufacture

In paper manufacture the lip gap at the headbox determines the thickness of the paper. Paper machines usually have a lip width between 4 and 6 metres. The measuring task is a constantly monitoring the gap between the upper and lower lip as a quality relevant variable. ...

Tester for pneumatic actuator

So-called muscles are developed as alternatives to hydraulic cylinders. The hose made of rubber contracts when it is filled with compressed air. An in-house tester has been developed for testing this muscle. A sensor from the optoNCDT 2200 series in this tester monitors ...

Control and monitoring of the production sequence in a refinery

In the refinery crude oil is cracked by distillation to give petroleum, kerosene and diesel oil. In the fractional distillation column the crude oil is heated with superheated steam. The vapors and liquids released collect in the various stages of this column. To control ...
