VLS Speed Sensor Adaptor
Surface speeds and rpm measurements can be made by attaching this accessory to any of the VLS optical sensor. The perimeter of the adapter wheel is 10cm, which relates to the RPM value of the VLS sensors. Each RPM being the equivalent of 10cm and allowing a linear speed to be calculated.
