Monitoring drive belts

Monitoring drive belts

Presence and function checking for drive belt via capacitive or inductive sensors

The solution

In order to transmit rotary movements, machine tools often use drive belts. Their presence and function must be continuously checked.

Depending on the design, BCS capacitive sensors or BES inductive sensors from Balluff are suitable for this task. In the event of an error or belt failure, they can trigger a stop of the drive.

The features

  • Reliable checking of the drive belts
  • Different sensors depending on the design of the drive belt
  • Stoppage of the drive in the event of an error
