On 28.09.2021 our management, Dr. Jakob Hermann and Dr. Robert Widhopf-Fenk, accepted the award personally at the fair in Böblingen, Germany. The LMM2 was honored for its high flexibility, precision, and insensitivity to interference. Among other things, it is highly suitable for the measurement of torsional vibrations.
The Laser Tachometer IfTA LMM2
The new laser tachometer IfTA LMM2 (Laser Measurement Module) is a fiber-optic sensor that can be used in combination with an IfTA measurement system among other things for non-contact measurement of rotational speed, angular velocity and vibration angle on rotors and shafts.
The measurement principle, which is based on optical reflection, is carried out using a gear encoder or zebra tape attached to the rotating shaft. The high bandwidth and narrow focus of the laser mean maximum precision. The sensor head consists of a single fiber optic cable and can therefore be placed even in locations that are difficult to access. We offer the sensor either as an input module for IfTA measurement systems or in its own housing.
