iBelt™ measures belt load, speed and misalignment with high accuracy in real time. It is used for production control, machine optimization and belt wear reduction.
Volumetric load measurement, belt speed measurement, belt misalignment control.
iDDR™ – volumetric Control
iDVR™ – speed measurement
iLDR™ – misalignment/freeboard
iBelt PackageBelt Volume Measurement
For 2D surface profile measurement of the load on the belt, the robust iDRR (indurad DualRangeRadar) sensor is installed over the conveyor belt. To go from 2D load profile measurement to load volume measurement, the profile information must be combined with a measured or fixed conveyor belt speed value. The volume flow is directly available in cubic meters, cubic yards or other formats via a HMI or for PLC/SCADA integration.
iBelt PackageLoad Speed Measurement
For load speed measurement, the iDVR (indurad DopplerVelocityRadar) sensor is installed above the belt with a clear view of the material stream. The iDVR captures both low and high speeds and is able to distinguish between speed of the load and speed of the belt. This unique property is especially important for precise results on steep conveyors.
iBelt PackageBelt Misaligment Tracking
For belt misalignment and belt cut detection, one iLDR (indurad LinearDynamicRadar) sensor is installed on each side of the conveyor belt, aiming at the belt edges. The iLDR sensors measure the distance to each belt edge with millimeter precision, the real-time offset between both values allows for detecting developing misalignments in split seconds.
iBelt PackageBelt Freeboard Measurement
For conveyor belt freeboard measurement, one iLDR (indurad LinearDynamicRadar) sensor is installed on each side of the conveyor belt, aiming at the belt edges. The measured distance between the belt edge and the belt load allows for continuous and reliable freeboard measurement.
iBelt PackageDensity Calculation
Combining iBelt volume measurement (m³) and belt scale weight measurement (t) provides material density in real-time.
