The Bulkscan® LMS511 uses time-of-flight laser technology to provide non-contact volume flow measurements on conveyor belts. No matter what kind of bulk materials are involved or how bad weather conditions are, the multi-echo technology allows the Bulkscan® LMS511 to generate a reliable volume flow signal using the laser’s time of flight and the belt speed.
Aside from calculating total quantities and mass flow, the Bulkscan® LMS511 can monitor the operation of the conveyor belt without coming into physical contact with it and promptly gives warning of any belt slippage. The integrated bulk materials center-of-gravity calculator will detect uneven loading and avoid excessive belt wear. The rugged industrial housing is ideal for extreme operating conditions. An integrated heater also ensures safe operation at low ambient temperatures. Discrete signals as well as Ethernet TCP/IP can be used to connect the measuring system to a host communication system.
