Product Overview

This small board is the quickest way to measure speed or position on almost any rotating or sliding mechanism. Simply mount the PCB facing the object to be measured, and apply a contrasting mark to the object – Electrical Tape or black permanent marker work well on metallic surfaces. Silver marker or white paint work well on dull ones. Most targets can be measured accurately between 0.5 and 1.5in. When connected to a 5V supply, the TLEN sensor will output a pulse (High-Bright/Reflective. Low-Dark) for each mark on the object being measured. This enables the sensor to be used for speed sensing, counting rotations, or basic object detection. As a speed sensor, the TLEN R2 is rated up to 30,000RPM, but will often perform acceptably over 40,000RPM

    Distance

    We found we had to carefully adjust the distance from the wheel we were sensing. Neither too far nor too close worked well. It worked well when we were able to position the distance just right. It worked pretty well to 3d print a mount for this and mount the encoder to the mount and mount the assembly to the chassis. Still needs some cable management to ensure the cable stays firmly plugged into the encoder and doesn't vibrate loose.
