Electronic Monitoring Equipment

4B offers an extensive range of monitoring equipment and sensors for bucket elevators, belt and chain conveyors, screw conveyors and silos. 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.

Electronic Monitoring Equipment

bucket-elevator-electronics

The bucket elevator is one of the most efficient methods for elevating bulk granular materials - but it is also one of the most dangerous. The dust generated from the movement of materials within the elevator can be highly explosive, and mechanical failure or incorrect operation of the bucket elevator can have catastrophic consequences. The most common hazards on bucket elevators are belt misalignment, belt slippage, blocked chutes, and bearing failures, each of which should be monitored to reduce the risk of fires, explosions or breakdowns that result in costly downtime.

4b offer a range of monitoring equipment and sensors to monitor those hazards.

M1003 Stopswitch

M100 Stopswitch
M1003 Stopswitch

The M1003 Stopswitch is a simple inductive shaft speed monitoring device. The self-contained unit, which signals when the shaft has stopped rotating. It can be used for process control, motion detection and stopped shaft indication. An inductive sensing device located in the nose of the M100 enclosure will detect a metal target. This target can be an existing bolt head or device attached to a shaft. The M1003 Stopswitch requires no calibration and provides an output when the shaft has stopped rotating.

PRODUCT DETAILS

M800 Speed Switch

M800 sensor inductivo de velocidad
M800 Speed Switch

The M800 Elite Speed Switch is designed to detect belt slip, belt underspeed, stop motion, low speed or zero speed on bucket elevators, conveyors, airlocks, mixers, fans, grinders and many other rotating machines. Totally sealed and simple to calibrate, the M800 Elite works in the harshest of conditions.

An inductive sensing device located in the nose of the M800 Elite enclosure will detect a metal target. This target can be an existing bolt head or device attached to a shaft. During installation the M800 Elite is set to the normal machine shaft RPM by calibrating with the magnet provided. The internal microprocessor sets the alarm and shutdown relays.

PRODUCT DETAILS

Whirligig®

4B Whirligig shaft sensor mount
Whirligig®

The Whirligig® is a fully guarded target for easy mounting of motion sensors. It is a universal shaft sensor mount suitable for all industry standard cylindrical or DIN style inductive sensors including 4B's M100, M300, and M800 speed switch sensors.

The sensor bolts to the Whirligig base plate and the complete assembly either bolts to the machines shaft through a M12 tapped hole, or is connected magnetically using 4B’s patented Mag-Con™ adaptor. Shaft or machine vibration does not affect the performance of the sensor, as the whole assembly moves with the shaft. With the Whirligig, installation of speed sensors is now simple, safe and reliable.

T400N Elite

T400N Unité de surveillance de la température des paliers
T400N Elite

Unique low cost alarm/indicator panel for use with any 4B NTC-type temperature sensors. ADB810, WDB70, and WDB810 series sensors are recommended.

The T400N ELITE is able to accept signals from up to 8 NTC sensors (zones), which are separated into two groups of 4 zones. Each group of sensors is able to cause alarm and shutdown of individual machine when hazardous conditions are detected. There is a total of 2 Alarm and 2 Stop relays. The control unit is housed in a self contained wall mounting enclosure. A test push button on the lid of the control unit provides for full system verification. Alarm and status LEDs provide means of quick location of the alarm condition, and voltage free relay contacts provide separate alarm and shutdown control. An alarm mute push button is provided on the lid of the control unit and additional connections are provided for an external alarm mute functionality. A rotary switch is used to select the temperature alarm value.
