Sensortechnik: Optical Belt Scale

The Sensortechnik optical belt scale (SOBS) is the ultimate non-contact belt and conveyor scale for the measurement of bulk materials and production. Sensortechnik is the leading optical belt scale based material management solution for the construction, mining, mulch & biomass, quarry & sandpit, waste & recycling and many other industries.

The heart of the Sensortechnik optical belt scale is an electro-optical sensor, which performs the material volume measurement in a totally contact-free manner. Why does this matter? This single feature completely eliminates wear-and-tear, unlike traditional scales where replacing load cells create down time and reduce your operations productivity.




Sensortechnik

Sensortechnik System

Through the use of advanced technology and Sensortechnik’s 14-plus years’ of industry experience enables the optical scale to cover all application areas where conventional belt scales have their limitations. The Sensortechnik optical belt scale is perfect for stationary conveyor belts, pivoting and folding conveyors, as well as on short ribbed belts and chevron belts. Belt tension will no longer be a factor, with Sensortechnik, the optical belt scale is not affected by the tension variance due to temperature changes or poor adjustments. With the no-contact system, Sensortechnik is able to easily track and measure your results accurately.
