|Applications for Rotech Motion
principle application for “Rotech” Heavy Duty Motion Sensors is as a
Slow Down Switch on plant and machinery.
can be fitted to Conveyor Belts, Elevators, Conveyor Screws, Crushers,
Valves and any other plant that presents a hazard if it stops or slows
normal running speed.
should always be installed at the end of the drive system.
a Conveyor and Elevator they should be installed on the Tail Drum, Tail
Snub Roller, Gravity Take up Roller or any roller that is driven by the
conveyor belt itself. Alternatively the 'Rotech' Wheel Driven Motion
Sensors can be fitted directly to run on the return side of the
slowing down of the Drive Motor, Gearbox, Drive Chains, Drive Belts, or
conveyor belt slipping, etc, will result in the conveyor belt and the
drum/roller slowing down which will be detected by the Motion Sensor.
elements of the conveyor are therefore
Heavy Duty Shaft Sensor should, unless special circumstances apply,
never be fitted
to the Drive Roller or Drum.
Conveyor Screws the Heavy Duty Shaft Sensor should be
installed to the non-driven end of the screw.
Sensors can give information on the speed, angular position, direction
number of revolutions completed by a rotating shaft.
racks, screws, slides, etc all of these functions can be translated
its use as a Speed Switch is the principle application of “Rotech”
Motion Sensors/Encoders, they also fulfil a wide range of other
types of industries.
are some of
the more popular applications that 'Rotech' Heavy Duty Shaft Motion
Sensors/Encoders are utilised for.
in conjunction with a Digital Panel Meter to display RPM or linear
speed of a Conveyor Belt.
in conjunction with a Counter unit and either a roller or wheel of
known circumference, to measure cut off lengths, total throughput, or
to position material for a process operation.
