ContiTech's Electronic Monitoring System Enhances Conveyor Belt Safety
Conti®Protect Belt Rip Detection detects longitudinal slitting early on and prevents extensive damage / Reduces repair costs and accident risks
Automatic stop protects conveyor belt
Monitoring takes place via conductor loops, which are vulcanized into the conveyor belt. These loops transmit a high-frequency signal between a transmitter and receiver. If a loop is damaged, the signal will break down on the receiver end. The system control then stops the conveyor belt automatically. How long the system needs to come to an emergency stop is determined by the distance between the conductor loops, which can vary between 20 and 50 meters. During an initial learning cycle, these distances are recognized and saved by the system.
The new monitoring system is also extremely easy to use. "All the signal sequences can be called up electronically so that, if necessary, one can conclude from them about the quality of the loops. An Ethernet connection means that the system can be controlled via a PC and also via the Internet," explains Dr. Andreas Jungk. Many of the systems allow ContiTech specialists to connect to the system on request to carry out remote maintenance. All of the components used in the Conti®Protect Belt Rip Detection system are extremely robust, which enables them to meet the high demands of the mining and bulk material industries.
