Efficient process control using laser speed and length sensors

ProSpeed® LSV-1100 Laser Surface Velocimeter


Climate change is one of the most discussed topics of modern society. Even though steel is one of the worlds most recycled materials, the steel industry is the largest industrial emitter of carbon dioxide.

For sustainability and responsible manufacturing, the new ProSpeed® Laser Surface Velocimeters can help the efficiency in production and process control: precise measurement and process control leading to less scrap or waste by improving e.g. cut-to-length control in processes such as continuous casting and plate production.


ProSpeed® – the next generation LSV Laser Surface Velocimeters – optimize production processes by providing reliable measurements and increase the output worldwide in the metals, cable and converting industries.

The ProSpeed® LSV-1100 optical sensor measures in forward direction with laser precision. It measures reliably even under harsh production conditions with working distances up to 1.5 m. Due to the non-contact measurement principle, these laser sensors eliminate common problems of traditional contact-wheel measurement methods such as damage to delicate surfaces, slippage and thermal expansion and work on almost any surface.



Sensor integration and control with enhanced connectivity

The enhanced connectivity of the next generation sensor ProSpeed® LSV-1100 provides access to configuration and process data – anywhere and anytime. Increase your flexibility and get direct feedback through touch display. Comfortably parametrize via web interface and allow concurrent data access with Ethernet and serial interface for up to four users or systems. For automated PLC-controlled processes the integrated PROFINET and EtherNet/IP interfaces allow an easy integration of the sensors into production control systems.
