Monitoring conveyor belt operation

When the actual speed of a conveyor belt differs from the required speed, production yield changes and production steps can be misaligned. Maintaining the proper speed and taking periodic measurements to prevent interruptions or failures are therefore essential for maintaining production throughput. A safety encoder continuously monitors conveyor belt operations to maximize performance, while an encoder for functional safety furthermore supports safety functions.

  • Following product families can be used
