Courtesy: SICKSick's Sam inductive sensor for speed and acceleration monitoring is designed to reduce scrap and downtime in wire, thread, and web break applications. The Sam’s acceleration monitoring functionality measures the change in speed, detecting a break almost immediately.

The Sam gives a raw pulse output and a programmable, discrete switching output. It has a monitoring range of up to 12,000 pulses per minute and a unique start-up delay. To reduce false trips, the Sam offers three modes – no delay, fixed time delay, and upper threshold delay – to account for fast or slow machine start-up times. In addition, integrated monitoring via on-board adjustment tools makes it easy to set parameters and display errors directly on the Sam, ensuring a quick response to any problem.

The Sam inductive sensor also provides a programmable switching output through IO-Link. This enables users to set the amount of deceleration needed to trigger an output, increasing application flexibility.
