Siemens SITRANS WS300 Digital Speed Sensor

The Siemens SITRANS WS300 is a low to high resolution, shaft-driven speed sensor that provides a signal to a digital integrator in conveyor belt scale applications. The SITRANS WS300 is directly coupled to a rotating tail or bend pulley shaft to ensure accurate belt-travel readout, eliminating problems cause by belt slippage or material build-up.

The WS300 has a rugged, cast aluminum housing and is suitable for outdoor installation. It is bi-directional for either clockwise or counter-clockwise belt travel.
