MT

Misalignment Transducer


Advantages

- compact design
- maintenance-free
- continuous measurement of belt-position
- applicable for extreme conditions simple integration into plant- and process automation systems
- convenient installation


Description

The Misalignment Transducer MT is a compact an rugged measuring device to determine the misalignment of conveyor belts. The MT was designed for harsh conditions in the mining and other industrial sectors. The rugged design, easy integration into existing belt conveyors and simple installation combined with the maintenance free operation characterizes the MT.






Function

The misalignment transducer MT consists of the tuning angle transmitter DRS and the touch roller. The tuning angle transmitter is compounded by its housing, the inboard rotary element, the evaluation electronic and the return spring. The output of the evaluation electronic is an opto-decoupled signal of 5 Hz to 15 Hz according to the measured angle in the range of 0° to 130°. For the continuous tracking of the belt position the touch roll shall permanently be in contact with the belt edge which is realized by the return spring. If an application requires the polling of a specific angle the DRS is also available with a contact output.

KMS

Force Measuring Bar


Advantages

- simple integration into plant- and process automation systems
- compact design
- applicable for extreme conditions maintenance-free
- various areas of application
- convenient installation


Description

The Force Measuring Bar KMS is a compact an rugged measuring device to determine traction- and compressive force. The KMS was designed for harsh conditions in the mining and other industrial sectors. The rugged design, easy integration and installation into existing belt conveyors combined with a maintenance free operation characterizes the KMS. The KMS is utilized e.g. for measuring the tensioning force at belt conveyors as well as in the area of load monitoring and overload protection in monorail trains and many other applications.


Function

The Force Measuring Bar consits of a coupling rod with attached strain gauge and integrated transducer. The traction- and compression forces affecting the coupling rod are captured by the strain gauge. The integrated transducer converts the sensor signal into standard output signal. The output signal is either an opto-decoupled signal of 5 -15 Hz or a voltage and current signal available through the integrated EMSYS plug through which the device will also electrically supplied.
