Designed to extend the life of conveyor belts and provide additional safety features for the Conveyor System
Load Cells are installed on either side of the conveyor. As you can see the Load Cells are connected to a take-up winch, which applies the tension to each side of the conveyor. The Load Cells monitor the tension on the take-up winches. This System can provide a read-out of the tension applied to each side of the conveyor or alternatively a 4 - 20mA signal for inputs into PLC Systems. This enables the installer or maintenance department to accurately adjust and set the tension on each side of the conveyor belt.
Thereby reducing belt wear and tear, which will ultimately assist to reduce ongoing maintenance costs. In other words the Conveyor Belt Monitoring
System pays for itself by protecting and reducing the maintenance of the conveyor system. Various models are available to suit the various Conveyor Systems. We can cater for most of these systems. Electric motors have current sensing overload protection devices installed, however they cannot operate or monitor the conveyor with the same degree of speed, accuracy or efficiency that is provided by the installation of Load Cells.
