Conveyor belt drift detection

When bulk materials are irregularly loaded, the tensioners and runners of the conveyor belt can deviate from the optimal alignment and cause conveyor belt drift. When this occurs, the signal edge of the conveyor belt overshoots the support roller. Bulk materials can be lost or, in extreme cases, derail the belt. Compact Dx35 distance sensors on both sides of the conveyor belt monitor the lateral movements of the belt and put out a warning before belt drift occurs. The Dx35 uses HDDMTM time-of-flight technology, either with red or infrared emitted light, and is insensitive to ambient light and dust. It results in almost no maintenance costs after installation and setup. With its flexible interfaces and easy installation, the Dx35 is a economical measurement solution.
