4B Australia has recently introduced a new maintenance tool designed for quick, easy and accurate testing of 4B speed switch sensors.
4B Australia is part of the 4B Braime group, a worldwide manufacturer of material handling and electronic components for bucket elevators and conveyors.
Accurately testing the calibration of speed switches and their alarm and shutdown underspeed relays, 4B SpeedMaster speed switch sensor testing and calibration device operates in two modes.
While the input mode provides the user with the machine’s actual running speed, the output mode allows the user to test the speed switch at set underspeed trip points for real time verification of the monitoring system's alarm and shutdown functions.
The SpeedMaster speed switch sensor testing and calibration device eliminates the need to remove the sensor from the machine shaft or change any system connections during use. Maintenance and safety personnel can now quickly, easily and accurately test 4B speed switches during recommended inspection schedules.
