The PV-01 from Canon is a compact, high-precision laser Doppler velocimeter with S-100 and S-150Z/200 optical sensors that can measure the velocity and length of moving targets such as items on a conveyer belt, lopes of elevator systems, pipes, cables to be cut at a certain length, etc. The PV-01 comes with a free measurement software package to monitor the trend of velocity and analyze data.
The available measurement software, able to connect to a Windows based PC, provides a variety of measurement options and automated tests for the production line. Measurement of velocity/length is done without contacting the target material. This device is used for detecting multiple types of irregularities in OA equipment, AV equipment, and manufacturing equipment.
