Belt Scale Sensors for Mining Applications

Siemens Industry Automation has added new features to its Milltronics BW500 belt scale integrator.

Siemens' Belt Force Sensor

The BW500/L has been designed to fit easily into applications. It is available with two relays and can measure rate, total weight, belt loading and speed of mass weights. The devices are SPST form A contacts and are rated 5A at 250V AC. They cannot be inducted and can be reversed.

The relays are time efficient because of an in-built automatic calibration with data being saved in a non-volatile Flash memory. Data can be retrieved during off-power mode. The device has extra PID control and is suitable for complicated applications. It is ideal for use in the food, mining and cement segments and can be connected to any weight meter that has six strain load cells. It is compatible with one or two-load systems and can be linked to networks through Profibus DP, Allen Bradley RIO and DeviceNet. They can be deployed with the Sitrans RD500, which is a remote controlled data manager.
