The Speed Measuring Sensor Groove Coupler Module is a device used to measure the rotational speed of a shaft or axle. It is typically used in combination with an Arduino microcontroller to provide an accurate measurement of speed. The module consists of a sensor, typically a photo-interrupter or a Hall Effect sensor, that is mounted in a coupler, which fits over the shaft or axle to be measured. As the shaft rotates, the sensor detects changes in the light or magnetic field and generates a signal that can be used to calculate the speed of the shaft. This information can then be used in a variety of applications, such as motor control, robotics, or data logging. The Groove Coupler Module is an easy-to-use and affordable solution for measuring rotational speed, making it a popular choice for hobbyists and educational projects.
Product Images are shown for illustrative purposes only and may differ from the actual product.
- Using imported groove optical coupling sensor, width 5mm.
- It has the output state light, if the output is high level, the lights are off. if the output is low level, it is on.
- If it is covered, it will output a high level; otherwise, it output a low level.
- Good signal and waveform, with a strong driving ability for more than 15mA.
- Equipped with a fixed bolt hole, easy installation.
- Use the LM393 wide voltage comparer.
- The DO output interface can be directly connected to a micro-controller IO port if there is a block detection sensor, such as the speed of the motor encoder can detect.
- DO modules can be connected to the relay, limit switch, and other functions, it can also with the active buzzer module, compose an alarm.
- Motor control: Can be used to monitor and control the speed of motors in applications such as robots, automation systems, or hobby projects.
