It monitors any ferrous target. That may include the buckets on a bucket elevator, the flight of a screw conveyor, a key way on a motor shaft, or any object that contains iron, whether it is part of the actual equipment or a piece of metal added to provide a target for monitoring.
Connected to the Milltronics MFA-4 motion failure alarm, the motion sensor alerts the operator to an underspeed or an overspeed condition on the monitored equipment. The operator can then take immediate action to correct the problem before serious damage occurs to the equipment.
The XPP-5 is a non-contacting device that mounts outside the process. It gives reliable speed detection when mounted up to 100 mm (4 inches) from the target. It's a highly sensitive 2-wire magnetic probe with a fully potted pre-amplifier and integral cable. It is CSA hazardous area approved for permanent installation in Class I, Division 1, Groups A, B, C, and D; Class I, Division 2, Groups E, F, and G; as well as for Class III applications.
