Here's how some of our customers used this product.
Identifying Overheated Rollers in Conveyor Belt Systems
The Background: Our customer is a large industrial facility with multiple conveyor belt systems used to move material throughout the plant. They seek a consolidated means of monitoring the rollers for overheating.
The Problem: Overheated rollers are a leading cause of fires in factories. Due to the continuous motion of conveyor systems, if a bearing wears out it can quickly overheat and ignite the rubber conveyor belt. Even relatively small conveyors can have hundreds of rollers making it difficult to monitor them all.
The Solution: We recommended the Define Instruments Nimbus smart relay. The Nimbus can interface with temperature sensors and wirelessly relay data to a display or alarm. This is a simple, effective means of monitoring the temperature of the conveyor rollers without having to run additional wiring.
