Steel Cable Monitoring
The CORD CONTROL system is a computer measuring system analysing the condition of conveyor belt splices. Its principle of operation is a precise measurement and comparison of distances between several points to determine the length of the conveyor belt splice. This allows you to select a given splice and monitor it at each conveyor belt revolution. The points defining the length measured are special-structure permanent magnets.
The CORD CONTROL measurement computer system comprises magnetic field sensors and pulse-meter (measurement of the distance covered), a measuring transducer and a microprocessor which make a control system. A data transmission and processing system comprises a PC and network wiring system. The elements which define the conveyor belt measurement points are permanent magnets which are installed in a monitored belt on the opposite sides of the splices. Depending on the belt width, the magnets may be installed in two or a maximum of four places. This also limits the number of magnetic field sensors; there may be 2-4 of them. The magnets installed are of 10 mm diameter and hight, thus they can be installed in any belt thicker than 12 mm.
