Troubleshooting conveyor problems: Long overland conveyor belts, high power conveyor belts, and downhill conveyor belts can fail for reasons that are impossible to determine by visual inspection. This paper describes a data acquisition system using strain gauges, load-cells, tachometers, and high speed data collection hardware that we developed to diagnose invisible problems in conveyors. We present real world examples that show how our system helps us solve problems in wound rotor motors, brake control systems, take-ups, and magnetic couplings.
