Milltronics RBSS Speed Sensor

The Siemens Milltronics RBSS Speed Sensor is a high resolution, wheel-driven return belt speed sensor. The Milltronics RBSS monitors conveyor belt speed, with the output signal transmitted by cable connection to the integrator  (Milltroncs BW500, or SIWAREX FTC).

Easily installed close to the belt scale assembly, the RBSS provides a signal generated as the wheel on the sensor rotates on the return belt. To secure this cost-effective unit in place, position a cross bar between stringers - either just before or after a return belt idler, or use the optional mounting bracket. The weight of the RBSS ensures positive rotation of the wheel in the middle of the return belt, and pulses from the magnetic sensor are generated by the rotation of the 60 toothed speed sprocket driven by the wheel. The RBSS output can be applied to any Milltronics belt scale integrator.
