Learning about Speed Sensors
Wednesday, May 23, 2018

In our daily lives, we regularly utilize and employ several types of sensors. We are frequently using them in many applications like TV remotes and other everyday appliances.

Other examples can be of a reactive infrared sensor which is equipped into the automatic door we see at shopping malls that allows them to automatically open and close. Even though we see sensors all around us every day in some form or another, there isn’t much that we know about the different types of sensors or even what a sensor actually is.

Sensor

A sensor is a device that is used to generate an output by sensing and detecting any change in quantity or event.

This change in occurrence is called a sensor. Sensors generally produce an electrical signal or optical output indicator that is equivalent to any changes that occur in the inputs. Although the primary job of a sensor is to detect changes each type of sensor has their own individual capabilities such as:

The different types of sensors which are the most regularly used are categorized based on the measurements. For example, electric current sensors, radio sensors, fluid velocity, pressure sensors, optical sensors, chemical sensors, magnetic sensors, speed sensors and temperature sensors among others.

Speed Sensor

The most common type of sensors is a speed sensor and it is also the easiest to understand for any beginner. Speed sensors are used primarily for detecting the speed of a moving object or vehicle. There are various types for speed sensors available with each of them designed to detect the speed of one particular object. For example, speedometers, air speed indicators, Doppler radars, ground speed radars, LIDAR, pilot tubes among others.

PIC microcontrollers are used to provide the required speed management of numerous motors in the industries through several wireless and advanced equipments. These equipments are typically used for the application of a speed sensor. One of these motors which are frequently used in the industry is known as a core motor and acts a source while the remaining ones behave as receivers.

The receivers basically follow the speed exerted by the main motor. The primary motor and its receivers are used in BLDC motors. BLDC motors are controlled by means of a PWM controller, integrating the radio incidence over a wireless communication method.

Another important component of the speed sensor is the reference RPM. A reference RPM is aligned with every motor shaft having an IR antenna mounted. This equipment also has a closed loop that is attained by feeding the generated output into the controller of the circuit.

Full speed is displayed on the display attachment and the needed speed of all the attached motors is achieved by inserting the desired rate into the wireless equipment. This entered rate is coordinated with a running RPM by upholding an appropriate DC power throughout the motor.
