Ramsey™ Conveyor Protection Switches

Protect your equipment, prevent accidents and reduce unscheduled shutdowns with the Thermo Scientific™ Ramsey™ Conveyor Protection Switches. The Belt Misalignment Switch (Run Off Switch) and Safety Cable Pull Switch (Pull Cord Switch) are now available with network addressable modules. Ramsey conveyor safety switches also include the Tripper Position Switch. All are used for position information, control signals, and to identify potentially hazardous situations with your process equipment. They utilize a rugged, heavy-duty design and are built to last.

Ramsey™ 60-12 Digital Belt Speed Sensor

Monitor conveyor belt scale speed in demanding bulk material handling applications with the highly reliable and accurate Thermo Scientific™ Ramsey™ 60-12 Digital Belt Speed Sensor. Direct-coupling the sensor to the conveyor tail pulley, snubbing roll, or large diameter return roller ensures accurate belt-travel readout. No wheels ride on the belt, eliminating problems related to material build-up and slippage. The sensor element uses a brushless, pulse generator to produce a stream of pulses, each representing a unit of belt travel. The pulse stream frequency is proportional to true belt speed.

Models 60-12C, F, G and ENC Speed Sensors must be attached to a pulley shaft which turns at true conveyor belt speed. Normally, the tail pulley shaft or a snubbing roll shaft satisfies this requirement. In installations where the tail pulley or snubbing roll shaft is not accessible, an additional pulley must be installed specifically for the speed sensor.

  • 60-12C is used for speeds from 20 to 200 RPM and supplies the output of the generator directly to the totalizer for high speed operation

  • 60-12F is used for speeds from 3 to 30 RPM

  • 60-12G is used for speeds from 10 to 200 RPM

  • 60-12ENC is used for speeds 0 to 200 RPM and has a 500 pulse per revolution encoder inside, typically is used on slow RPM applications
