Monitoring belt tension on the conveyor belt

To prevent spilling, down time and material waste, the tension of the conveyor belt cannot be too high or too low. The IMB18 inductive proximity sensor is perfectly suited for this task, and prevents extensive wear and overstretching of the belt. It also reliably performs its task in the roughest environments, and ensures a safe operation of the conveyor belt. Thanks to the visual adjustment aid and self-locking nuts, installation on-site is quick and easy.
