Universal Shaft Sensor Mount – Sensor Installation Made Easy


Fully guarded target for easy mounting of motion sensors.

The ‘Whirligig’ three in one target/bracket/guard is suitable for all industry standard cylindrical or DIN style inductive sensors including our M100, M300 and M800 speed sensors.

The sensor bolts to the whirligig base plate and the complete assembly bolts to the machines shaft. The installation of speed sensors is now simple, reliable and fully guarded. Shaft or machine vibration does not affect the performance of the sensor, as the whole assembly moves with the shaft.


  1. Universal application – Suits all DIN style and industry standard cylindrical sensors
  2. Easy Installation – Only requires an M12 tapped hole in the machines shaft or use the MagCon for magnetic connection
  3. Safe – Fully enclosed targets
  4. Included brackets for 30mm and 18mm diameter sensors

Conveyor Monitoring Instrumentation, which encompasses speed, alignment, belt rip and bearing temperature.

Our Synatel range of speed monitors includes standalone and remote systems. Our most popular model is the self-calibrating PU1DR belt slip monitor. This unit is designed to switch at 80% below normal speed, as defined during the calibration sequence. The unit is designed around a built-in inductive proximity sensor and requires a metal target for the speed reference.

The benefits of this product are:
• Self-contained solid state with relay output
• No PLC programming required
• Automatic magnetic calibration sets speed and time delay in one operation
• Accepts most power supplies.
