Rotor Speed

Measure Speed of a Bladed System

Prime Photonics' blade speed system measures the speed of a bladed rotor by counting blades.

 Speed system arrows 600


This all-optical system consists of the following elements:

  • An optical probe placed at a close distance from the blades, from 0.02" (0.5 mm) to 0.24" (6 mm).  We make probes for a wide range of rotor temperatures, in excess of 1200F (650C) uncooled and higher temperature with cooled probes [More about optical probes...]
  • An instrumentation module containing the laser that injects light into the optical probe and the photodetector which converts the reflected light into an analog voltage [More about instrumentation]
  • A TTL converter converts the blade passage signal into a square wave [More about our TTL converter]
  • A pulse counter counts the number of TTL pulses


Configure To Your Rotor
