Industries such as mining operations, pharmceutical, pulp or paper manufacturing have conveyor belt systems that should they run too fast or too slow could cause dangerous process conditions downstream. Due to the criticality of these belt speeds, Safety Instrumented System (SIS) may be implemented to protect the process and personnel.
When conveyor belt speed monitoring is important, consider the FDY PC Programmable Frequency-to-DC Converter. The FDY monitors frequency, period, high or low pulse width, and contact closure signals and converts it to a linear and isolated 4-20mA signal. The two-wire loop powered FDY has worldwide hazardous areas approvals and sets up in just a few minutes with easy to use PC programming software.
