    hello,

    I want to make a coil winding machine, I would like to implement a
    sensor so I can count the velocity of the wire I am coiling so I can
    accurately count the length of the wire,
    is there any type of sensors out there that can do that.
    thanks

    the problem is that the sensor sees the wire, but this is thin wire
    and I dont think the sensor will actually the wire moving.
    I think by adding a control wheel with rubber around it while adding
    a sensor to that wheel could work good enough.

    I need about 1 pound, which is roughly 2100 feet.

    Disassemble an old mechanical mouse, attach a shaft
    from one axis roller to your control wheel. Presto!
    Instant pulse counter.

    Forward *and* reverse. Straight into your computer.

    nope, making an electro magnet.
    I dont think I will pursue with the project as is though.
    or at least leave it for a while.

    Why 'velocity'? Why not just a wheel and counter?

    Good Luck!
