Monitoring safety switches on conveyor belts over long distances

A conveyor can run for several kilometers over desolate land. When trouble strikes, it is important to have a way to quickly and safely stop the conveyor in order to minimize loss and safeguard assets. A solution that incorporates a modular SIL-rated software programmable safety controller optimizes scalability thanks to its master/slave configuration. Flexi Line enables a mine site to reliably network up to 32 Flexi Soft safety controllers. Additionally, safe remote monitoring allows efficient servicing of the conveyors when necessary. This solution is a necessity when dealing with kilometers of belts.
