PHL FM10/400 SKF
Belt frequency meter
Quick and easy detection of belt vibration and tension
The SKF Belt Frequency Meter is a two component system consisting of a hand-held meter attached to an optical sensor via an electronic calbe. The sensor uses an infrared beam to detect the vibration of a belt strand and sends a signal to the meter. Comparing this input to the vibration of a quartz crystal, the meter computes the natural frequency of the belt. The result is shown in the display window as hertz (oscillations per second). The internal programming of the meter is also able to report the belt tension in units of force (either newton or pounds-force) provided the operator has entered the belt mass and span length using the manually operated key pad.
