Speed Measurement Trainer
- Photoelectric Characteristics
- Electromagnetic Proximity Characteristics
- DC Tachometer Generator Characteristics
- Speed Sensors Comparison
Rotating components are basic parts in almost all industrial machinery; examples are generators, turbines, pumps...etc. The objective of this trainer is to teach students measuring the speed of a rotating shaft using different types of speed sensors and comparing between their different behaviors and characteristics.
The speed sensors used are: Photoelectric sensor, Electromagnetic Proximity sensor, and DC Tachometer Generator.The different sensors are mounted in a position where they can measure the same speed of the rotating shaft; as a result the student will be able to note the differences between them.
