Conveyor Components Company's Mag-Neat-O magnetic motion controller

The Mag-Neat-O is a self-contained motion controller that magnetically couples to the end shaft of a tail pulley and indicates when a conveyor belt has slowed or quit moving altogether. The pulse output of the Mag-Neat-O can be wired into a PLC or DCS, which can easily determine under speed, overspeed or zero speed of the conveyor. The controller can shut down rotating equipment before severe damage is encountered and provides protection for interlocked conveyor belts, especially if one of the belts fails due to overloading or quits due to conveyor belt tearing/separation.
