Know Where, When, Why, How & What went wrong… Before Costly Damage Occurs! via Exact Location Fault Diagnostics Know what’s wrong, anywhere on your conveyor line/s: 24hrs a day 7 days a week 365 days a year. A Simple Switch or Alarm will: Save Lives Prevent Costly Damage Keep Production Rates @ Highest Continuous monitoring from conveyor startup to shutdown identifies problems before they cause stoppage, damage, or personnel injury. Modular design allows functions and devices to be added or removed to meet your specific needs. Pinpoints faults by type and location so maintenance crews spend less time searching for the problem, and get vital equipment back online sooner. Emergency stop, pre-start warning, and speech communications along the entire length of the conveyor enhance employee safety and equipment protection. Interlocking and sequencing can control material flow. If a safety device stops a downstream conveyor, either upstream conveyors are stopped or flow is diverted to another conveyor. Once the problem is corrected, all conveyors are restarted sequentially, and the conveyor system is once again charged with material. Central control room provides an overview of your entire operation, combining information from all controllers and field components. Hardwire or RF radio communications. Controllers can use any industrial protocol or serial communications (RS-32, RS- 422, or RS-485). Or, RF radio transmitters can be used to remove the need for hardwire communications.
Kiepe is the world leading manufacturer of devices for monitoring and controlling conveyor belt systems. UL, CE, CSA, & ATEX APPROVED, Kiepe is renowned globally and is synonymous with high-quality sophisticated products. Since the end of the 1960’s, Kiepe has emerged as the dominant provider of pull-rope emergency stop switches the world over. Decades of experience and consistent product development are the basis for the high quality and reliability of the products. LRS 004 SINGLE PULL CORD SAFETY SWITCH The Kiepe Elektrik Single Pull Cord Safety Switch is activated by pulling a plastic coated steel cable or pressing the “RED (STOP) BUTTON”. This action will trip and automatically lock the switches, thus de-energizing the conveyor. Pressing the “BLUE KNOB” will reset the switch. Cast Aluminum Housings! 100ft cable length with external tension spring! 65ft cable length between switches (Stand Alone)! HEN & SEB DUAL PULL CORD SAFETY SWITCHES The Kiepe Elektrik Dual Pull Safety Switches provide a switching system to isolate the power to the conveyor systems and other process equipment in the event of an emergency. Pulling the cable operates the actuating lever, which then trips the internal cam to the “off” position. Resetting the switch can only be achieved by means of the reset lever. 330ft cable lengths between switches Cam-operated switch elements Aluminum, Cast Iron, or Naval Brass Housings Zone 1 & Zone 2 explosion proof (intrinsically safe)
PRS DUAL PULL CORD SAFETY SWITCHES The Kiepe Elektrik Dual Pull Safety Switches are constructed of high impact fiber reinforced ULTRAMID. This economical switch is ideal for all applications including corrosive environments. Fiberglass Housings Stainless Steel Hardware 330ft cable length between switches Kiepe Misalignment Switches... Kiepe Belt Misalignment Switches are used in conveyor monitoring the belt travel. When mounted at the running edges of a conveyor belt, the switches will be operated if the belt deviates from it's designed running line by more than the permissible distance. * Maintenance Free Switches * Snap Actuating Switches * Cast Aluminum, Cast Iron and Naval Brass Housing * Available in Zone 1 and Zone 2 "Explosion Proof" Models VG: This Kiepe misalignment switch is designed for operation on conveyors with belt speeds up to 300 fpm. At 12 degrees from vertical, the VG switch will go into pre-alarm. At 45 degrees cutout will occur and it will be latched. The switch is reset by hand after being latched. There are different contacts (N.O.- Normally Open, N.C.-Normally Closed) available for pre- alarm and final cutout. MRS: NEW. Constructed of fiber reinforced plastic and stainless steel. These Kiepe belt misalignment switches are resistant to ammonia and can operate under extreme and harsh environments such as salt mines, composting, recycling plants as well as ocean port areas with high salt air content. Standard features include two self-cleaning switching elements. Switching points at 10 degrees and 25 degrees.
HES: All external parts are either stainless steel or specialty plated. This unit is designed for operation in severe conditions. The actuating roller is 1.77 inches and mounted on stainless steel bearings for years of serviceability at high belt speeds. Both contacts have adjustable switching point angles. These switches can be used with belts traveling up to 900 fpm. SES: Available in two styles.Type 001-004: Cast iron Housing ideally suited for mining or corrosive conditions. All external parts are either stainless steel or specially plated. 1.77 inch roller. These switches have a 15 degree pre- alarm with final cutout and latch at 45 degrees. Best suited for belts traveling up to 900 fpm. Type 102 and 105 (shown): Cast iron housing with the same features as the type 001-004 units with the exception of an oversized roller of stainless steel. The roller of 4.25 inches diameter is ideally suited for belts traveling in excess of 900 fpm. This unit also includes two N.O. and two N.C. contacts. Speed Monitoring... SWE: The SWE units provide monitoring of under speed, over speed and the stoppage of the shaft. Selection among the 4 different models is based on the range of Set Points. These adjustable Set Points make it possible to establish absolute acceptable under speed and over speed operation of equipment for safety and equipment protection. If the RPM exceeds the Set Point, a relay is energized. There is also a start up delay from 0.5 to 15 seconds to allow time for the conveyor to get moving on initial start up. SWE units are provided with mounting brackets. Coupling options available. * Compact Construction * Multiple Mounting Arrangements * Aluminum, Cast Iron or Naval Brass Housings
Belt Driven Speed Monitors: These units track the belt travel directly off the belt eliminating the necessity to connect a monitor to a pulley. Available as type SWB or SWEB. Electronic Speed Monitoring: Advanced micro-processor for monitoring either belt speed or belt slip. Minimum and maximum monitoring of belt speed allows both high and low speed alarms. All data is displayed on an LCD panel for easy calibration and viewing of information. Under/overspeed Monitors Slip Monitors Pulse Transducers Speed/Shaft Indicator: Hand-held unit for accurately monitoring belt speed in Feet Per Minute or Meters Per Minute as well as shaft RPM. Bright 5 digit LED display clearly shows information in all light conditions. Hand-held unit has last reading recall by pressing a yellow button located on the unit.
