Model 16 — Belt Alignment Control

WHAT IS IT?

The Model 16 is a heavy-duty conveyor belt mis-alignment switch that either provides an indication or a shutoff of the conveyor during a drift condition in order to prevent further damage to the conveyor belt. The output contacts of the Model BA can control up to two separate circuits – one for conveyor shutdown and one for an alarm.

WHY IS IT NECESSARY?

The model 16 is relatively inexpensive protection that provides benefit by saving the time, money, and labor associated with replacing a damaged conveyor belt.
