This E-Stop monitoring system for conveyor belts, according to the company, is an effective solution for mines because of its efficiency in helping get the belt line stopped.
â€œIt eliminates mine personnel walking a conveyor belt line to locate the respective activated pull-key box,â€ sales and marketing representative Earl Beck told International Longwall News.
The device, which provides constant monitoring of all installed ES switches on a lineâ€™s path, is easy to retrofit to both pull-key and pull-cord systems. It also allows for a pre-start warning to be given line-wide.
The transfer of information is made possible by one four-conductor cable (+/-V, +/- Com) and the data gets sent to a central controller at the systemâ€™s belt drive via high-speed data bus.
Beck calls the device an economical solution, as it will result in a greater amount of active time for a belt line. CO monitoring is also available.
