Motion Control for Interlocked Conveyor Belts

August 1, 2013

The Model RMS is a versatile non-contact motion control that monitors speed on interlocked conveyor belts. The Model RMS provides protection from slippage, breaking or system overload. It can shut down rotating equipment before damage is encountered. The motion control indicates when a rotating shaft has slowed or quit moving altogether. The unit can be adjusted as an over speed, under speed, or zero speed control. The output contacts of the Model RMS can control up to two separate circuits, one for machinery shutdown and one for an alarm. The RMS zero speed control is available in a NEMA 4 weatherproof polycarbonate enclosure, available with 120 VAC, 240 VAC, 24 VAC, or 24 VDC input power. The unpowered DP/DT output relay is capable of 5 amps at 120 VAC or 240 VAC.
