Belt speed measurement

Belt speed measurement | 22 September, 2004

I was wondering if anyone has ever considered measuring the belt speed of their reflow ovens using some type of hand-held, preferably non-contact device? If so, could you recommend a manufacturer of such a device? We are considering measuring our actual belt speed versus the setpoint as part of an SPC project. Any thoughts, certainly appreciated!

hand held tachometer. Standard method for process speed verification. Quick, easy and no more tape measures and stop watches!

Check your local grainger. They probably have half a dozen makers.

I recently bought a dual tach. One end has the roller the other uses IR (but you need a reflector mounted on the target shaft....works awesome.
