Amp. Indication Meter for Conveyor Motor

Amp. Indication Meter for Conveyor Motor

Product News Thursday, August 2, 2018: Mimic Components CC

Mimic Components large digit ammeters (for incline conveyor with 120mm high digits) are mounted at approximately every 20 meters along the conveyor wall (at 2.5m. high) such that it can be easily seen by the operator. An example would be adding coal onto the conveyor from each hopper. As the coal is added, the operator can see the current of the motor increasing, giving feedback of the load on the conveyor thus getting efficient control of the load on the conveyor. This reduces operational conveyor down-time due to motor trips and prevents damage to the belt from overloading. It also increases operation safety as broken conveyor belts can cause fatalities.


As the coal is added, the operator can see the current of the motor increasing. The Amp. indication gives feedback of the load on the conveyor. Adjustments can then be made to more efficiently control the load on the conveyor. This reduces operational conveyor down-time due to motor trips and prevents damage to the belt from overloading. It also increases operation safety as broken conveyor belts can cause fatalities.


Operational System

A parallel system is installed which converts the motor current into Industrial Modbus protocol, (this is suitable for efficient long-distance data transmission). Then the signal is sent down the appropriate conveyor and displays the information on a series of large digital displays which the operator can easily see as he works on the conveyor.

Advantages

 Helps to prevent over-heating of the belt drive motor and subsequent shut-down.

 (The motor could take a few hours to cool down before it can be re-started thus very significant downtime is incurred at the boiler which could cause shut-down of part of the power station if it is running at full capacity). The system also helps to prevent excessive wear and ultimately breaking the conveyor belt by reducing the belt overload and can incorporate high load warnings causing sirens to sound in the operating area.

Data loggers can be used to log current that can be used for planning purposes, e.g. wet coal records can be kept for advanced weather planning and expected station loading. The information from the data logger can be stored on Cloud and be sent anywhere, any time.
