Inductive speed sensors are one of the most cost-effective methods for measuring speed. These are contactless sensors and therefore free from wear. They can be customised to a wide range of requirements. Strongly built, the sensors are designed for intensive applications in severe environments. HEINZMANN inductive speed sensors are available with metric or inch threading.
Hall-effect sensors are ideal for the contactless, wear-free measurement of speed. The advantage of Hall sensors in comparison with inductive speed sensors is that the output signal is not dependent on speed. Sensing is based on tooth position. Varying the tooth configuration makes it possible to tailor this sensor type to a wide variety of applications. Hall speed sensors are also less sensitive to external interference.
