It measures distance changes as small as 0.01 inch. Up to 100 loop measurements per second are performed, and an alarm sounds if seven consecutive measurements per second do not conform to present limits.The SONA-trOL ST-6 is designed to be controlled externally using a programmable logic controller (PLC) or computer.
