LSV systems perform measurements irrespective of speed


Thanks to an innovative arrangement with POLYTEC, an international pioneer in the development of laser-based and optical metrology, ZUMBACH is now in a position to offer solutions for non-contact optical speed and length measurement with lasers.
Precise knowledge of length and current speed is a key cost and process optimization factor in the production of sheet goods and cables. Wear and slip push material costs up, but companies today can no longer afford to produce rejects. Quality is in demand. From the outset.

The new LSV 1000/2000 velocimeters ideally support manufacturers when monitoring quality in steel, cable, wire and tubing production. They exceed the performance of conventional contact-based measuring methods, at the same time offering maximum robustness with minimized maintenance requirements and costs.

The compact device provides length and velocity data quickly and reliably for both process control and cut-to-length applications. Precise detection of very small movements is possible because the measuring accuracy is not dependent on the speed.


With the Laser Surface Velocimeter 1000/2000, you can:

1. Rapidly adjust the desired measuring field

The device is a compact all-in-one system and can be easily integrated into production processes. The visible lasers in the LSV 1000/2000 simplify alignment in the measuring field.

2. Measure immediately – with mobile or remote monitoring

Recalibration is superfluous with the LSV 1000/2000. Its low weight of just 4.3 kg and the supplied mobility kit allow rapid mobile deployment. It is also possible to connect the LSV 1000/2000 to a laptop using the mobility kit. The connection box also included as standard is immediately ready for use and features a universal power supply and a LAN connection.

3. Optimize production processes – irrespective of the surfaces, materials and temperatures

The LSV length and speed sensors can be used in a huge array of environments. They are robust enough to supply reliable results even in adverse conditions: the LSV 1000/2000 measure reliably on virtually any surface, e.g. steel, shiny aluminium, oily sheets, wire and cable. Certified for protection classes IP 66 and IP 67 (in acc. with EN 60529), the robust sensor technology ensures reliable operation even under harsh conditions. The included cooling plate guarantees that the sensor remains within its operating temperature – even in very high ambient temperatures.

4. Communicate effectively

The rapid, state-of-the-art signal processor is equipped with a powerful command system for efficient system communication via serial or Ethernet interface.
The new system allows us to support your objective of optimizing continuous production processes to obtain significant material cost savings. In the light of its performance and the remarkably low operating and maintenance costs, the ROI is extremely attractive.
