Bucket Elevator & Conveyor Monitoring System

T5004V4CAI, T5004V46CAI

The T500 Elite Hotbus™ is a serial communications system designed to monitor up to 256 sensors for combined belt alignment, belt speed, continuous bearing temperature, pulley alignment, level indication (bin / silo) and plug conditions on bucket elevators and conveyors. With automatic machine shutdown capability and PLC / PC compatibility, this advanced microprocessor based system offers low cost installation, versatility and easy system expansion. Logging and trending software is also available for historic data analysis and preventative or predictive machine maintenance.

HazardMon.com® is a secure cloud based hazard monitoring solution providing status notifications and data logging for bucket elevators and conveyors. Live system status, graphs and historical data can be viewed on any web-enabled device (smartphone, tablet PC, desktop or laptop computer). Emails can be sent to notify users whenever a change in the system's health is detected. An automated maintenance feature allows site operators to verify that all sensors on the system are operational and working correctly.

F500 Elite Feldbus Gateway

The F500 is a communications gateway that allows for single point access to a maximum of four T500 Elite Hotbus™ systems via a Fieldbus protocol.  Fieldbus communication protocols supported include: Ethernet IP, Modbus TCP, Modbus RTU, DeviceNet, Profibus and others.

R500 Elite Alarm Relay Interface

The R500 is a microprocessor-controlled unit, which accepts signals from the T500 Elite Hotbus™ monitor, and is able to cause alarm or shutdown of equipment when a sensor exceeds its programmed alarm tolerance.

Hotbox Node - SN2 (Speed Node)

The SN2 is a two input speed node, powered by 24 VDC.  The node is able to monitor two independent pulse (speed) sources for dangerous under speed conditions.  The SN2 will support pulses which are PNP or sourced.  The Node has a unique 4 digit address which is used to communicate to the T500 via a two wire RS485 connection. The SN2 processes information from electrical inputs into network data. The data is passed down the network whilst local relays are activated for shutdown / alarm procedures.

Hotbox Node - TN4 (Input Node)

The TN4 is a four input sensor node, powered by 24 VDC.  Each input can be an NTC thermistor, PTC thermistor or Volt-Free Contact input; the types may be interchanged on a single node. The Node has a unique 4 digit address which is used to communicate to the T500 via a two wire serial RS485 connection. The TN4 Node processes information from electrical inputs into network data inputs for WDB, Binswitch or Touchswitch.

Hotbus node tester

The Hotbus Node Tester is a portable testing unit that can be used in the field to determine the operational status of any Hotbus communications node and network to quickly identify wiring or node issues.

Simply plug the network connection cable directly to the node.  A digital display on the tester will show the status of the node which can determine if the node is operating correctly.  The unit can also be connected to a PC for more detailed diagnostics data.

Allows speed switch calibration and testing while installed on the shaft.
ADB Bearing Sensor Tester

The ADB Sensor Tester has been designed to test 4B adjustable depth bearing (ADB) style temperature sensors in the field. This hand held test unit features an integrated heating block specifically designed to have a 4B ADB sensor directly inserted. 
With integral controls and temperature display, the unit heats the sensor to the desired trip point, and allows quick and easy real life testing of the sensor and temperature monitoring system.

4b Touchswitch sensor

The Touchswitch is an electro-mechanical limit switch with no moving parts, which detects tracking and misalignment problems on bucket elevators and conveyors. When a belt misaligns or a pulley moves over and contacts the sensor, the built in solid-state electronic circuitry detects the lateral force of the belt or pulley and activates a voltage free solid state relay output. This output signal is used to immediately alarm and ultimately shutdown the machine.

ADB bearing temperature sensor

The ADB series have been designed to allow the depth of the sensor to be adjustable depending on your application. A number of versions are available with probe lengths of 50, 100, 200 and 300 mm. The sensors screw directly into a bearing housing through a 1/4” BSPT threaded grease zerk. Each sensor is fitted with a grease zerk to allow lubrication of the bearing without the need for removal of the sensor. The ADB series have NTC or PT100 type thermistors which allow for continuous temperature monitoring.

WDB bearing temperature sensors

The WDB series bearing sensors are designed to screw directly into a bearing housing. Each sensor is fitted with a grease zerk to allow lubrication of the bearing without the need for removal of the sensor.

The WDB8 series have a 1/4” BSPT thread. The WDB2 series have a 1/8” NPT thread. Three versions are available; an NTC thermistor or Pt100 RTD type for continuous temperature monitoring, and a PTC thermistor model with the following trip points (specify when ordering): 60°C, 70°C, 80°C, 90°C for step (Cold/Hot) temperature monitoring.

WDB7 temperature sensor

The WDB7 series is a lug style NTC thermistor or platinum RTD (PT100) type for continuous temperature monitoring. It is designed to bolt directly onto a bearing housing, motor, gearbox, or machine casing. The mounting hole is M8 which can be drilled out up to M10 diameter. The sensor can be connected to a PLC or to a hazard monitoring system, such as 4B’s T500 Hotbus Elite, Watchdog Super Elite, or T400 Elite. The connections are not polarity sensitive therefore special connections requirements are eliminated.

MDB bearing temperature sensor

The MDB series is a range of bearing sensors manufactured to screw directly into a bearing housing through the existing 1/4” BSPT threaded grease zerk (can be installed in 1/8” NPT grease zerk fitting with an adapter). Each sensor is fitted with a grease zerk to allow lubrication of the bearing without the need for removal of the sensor.

M300 slipswitch underspeed sensor

The M300 Slipswitch is an easy-to-use inductive proximity shaft speed monitoring device with an adjustable 0 - 30 second start-up delay, all housed in a 30 mm diameter moulded body. The self-contained unit has a single set point, which signals when the shaft speed has dropped by 20% of normal running speed. It is used for detecting dangerous slow down and underspeed conditions on conveyors, bucket elevators, air locks, mixers, fans, grinders and many other machines. 

4B Binswitch

Detects level or plug situations for bulk granular solids or liquids in tanks, bins, or silos and can be used as a plug or choke detector in chutes, conveyors and elevator legs.

4B Autoset radio-frequency level indicator

The Auto-Set series RF capacitance point level monitors are used for detecting high, intermediate, or low levels of liquids, powders and free flowing granular solids stored in tanks, bins, silos or other containers.

Autoset Flush Probe RF level indicator  / plugswitch

The Auto-Set flush probe is a low profile RF capacitance plug switch level monitor designed for tight fitting applications to detect levels of liquids, powders and free flowing granular solids in conveyors, bucket elevators and surge hoppers.

Remote Autoset RF level sensor

The Auto-Set Remote series RF capacitance point level monitors are designed for high temperature (250°C) or vibration applications to detect high, intermediate, or low levels of liquids, powders and free flowing granular solids stored in tanks, bins, silos or other containers.

RLI Shaker rotary level indicator

The RLI “SHAKER” rotary paddle switch is used to detect high and low levels of bulk granular solids in bins, tanks and silos. It can also be used to detect plug conditions in spouts, where long life and fail-safe detection is required.

RLI  rotary level indicator

RLI

The RLI rotary paddle switch is designed to detect high and low levels of bulk granular solids in bins, tanks, silos, and as blockage detectors in spouts. The detection of material is achieved by a rotating paddle. If material impedes the rotation of the paddle, the motor topples of its axis and triggers a contact. The power supply to the motor is cut and the contact signals that a critical level has been reached, which will cause the motor for any inlet or outlet to close down or start up.
