The Watchdog™ Elite is a microprocessor controlled unit with combined belt speed, belt alignment, bearing temperature, pulley alignment and plugged condition monitoring for bucket elevators and conveyors. An LCD screen displays machine status messages (available in four different languages) and a super-bright LED display shows belt speed. Calibration and set-up parameters are accessed via a password and front panel touch buttons.
The A400 Elite Trackswitch belt misalignment monitor uses 4B WDA or BAP magnetic proximity sensors to monitor the alignment of the belt in bucket elevators. Each control unit incorporates two independent monitoring circuits for early detection of belt misalignment on one or two bucket elevators. The 4B magnetic reluctance sensors operate in pairs to detect the position of steel bolt heads or steel buckets as they pass through the sensor's adjustable magnetic field. Nuisance / false alarms are tuned out by setting a tolerance window on each sensor which allows for normal belt travel.
Preventative maintenance can help reduce the risk of equipment failure and consequent downtimes. When it comes to monitoring your bucket elevators and belt conveyors, 4B can recommend you the ideal combination of sensors and monitoring systems to suit your requirements and budget.
4B provides an extensive range of their own ATEX / IECEx / CSA /GOST- R approved hazard monitoring systems, misalignment switches and bearing temperature monitors and level controls. We can offer you anything from a replacement sensor to a fully integrated hazard monitoring system which can be operated either as a stand-alone system or connected to your PLC.
And if you do not want to install hazard monitoring sensors on every piece of equipment in your plant straightaway, we can offer you a scalable solution starting with carefully chosen equipment and systems that can be expanded at a later date to encompass other machines in the plant.
We can also offer you an installation service, and we do provide a competent after-sales technical service to help you overcome any technical problems with your monitoring equipment.
