Quick and easy detection of belt vibration and tension
The SKF Belt Frequency Meter is a two component system consisting of a hand-held meter attached to an optical sensor via an electronic cable. The sensor uses an infrared beam to detect the vibration of a belt strand and sends a signal to the meter. (The sensor includes an LED that produces an orange light beam to help aim the invisible infrared ray.) Comparing this input to the vibration of a quartz crystal, the meter computes the natural frequency of the belt. The result is shown in the display window as hertz (oscillations per second). The internal programming of the meter is also able to report the belt tension in units of force (either newton or pounds-force) provided the operator has entered the belt mass and span length using the manually operated key pad.
- Easy to use; no training required - Detection of vibration/frequency and tension of a belt through an optical sensor (infrared) - Orange LED generated beam supports aiming of the sensor - Measurement system based upon very stable quartz crystal - Capable frequencies range: 10 Hz to 400 Hz - Precision mechanical resonator (tuning fork) included to check calibration at a spot frequency - Visable and audible communication with the operator - Lightweight, handheld device
