Conveyor Belt Misalignment Switches

Belt Misalignment Switches are used in conveyor monitoring the belt travel. When mounted at the running edges of a conveyor belt, the switches will be operated if the belt deviates from its designed running line by more than the permissible distance.

  • Maintenance Free Switches
  • Snap Actuating Switches
  • Cast Aluminum, Cast Iron and Naval Brass Housing
  • Available in Zone 1 and Zone 2 "Explosion Proof" Models

VG Switch:

This Kiepe misalignment switch is designed for operation on conveyors with belt speeds up to 300 fpm. At 12 degrees from vertical, the VG switch will go into pre-alarm. At 45 degrees cutout will occur and it will be latched. The switch is reset by hand after being latched. There are different contacts (N.O. - Normally Open, N.C.-Normally Closed) available for pre-alarm and final cutout.

MRS Switch:

Constructed of fiber reinforced plastic and stainless steel. These Kiepe belt misalignment switches are resistant to ammonia and can operate under extreme and harsh environments such as salt mines, composting, recycling plants as well as ocean port areas with high salt air content. Standard features include two self-cleaning switching elements. Switching points at 10 degrees and 25 degrees.

HES Switch:

All external parts are either stainless steel or specialty plated. This unit is designed for operation in severe conditions. The actuating roller is 1.77 inches and mounted on stainless steel bearings for years of serviceability at high belt speeds. Both contacts have adjustable switching point angles. These switches can be used with belts traveling up to 900 fpm.

SES Switch:

Available in two styles. Type 001-004: Cast iron Housing ideally suited for mining or corrosive conditions. All external parts are either stainless steel or specially plated. 1.77 inch roller. These switches have a 15 degree pre-alarm with final cutout and latch at 45 degrees. Best suited for belts traveling up to 900 fpm.

Type 102 and 105 (shown): Cast iron housing with the same features as the type 001-004 units with the exception of an oversized roller of stainless steel. The roller of 4.25 inches diameter is ideally suited for belts traveling in excess of 900 fpm. This unit also includes two N.O. and two N.C. contacts.

Conveyor Belt Safety Pull Switches

LRS 004 Single Pull Safety Switch Request A Price

LRS 004 Single Pull Safety Switch

The Kiepe Elektrik Single Pull Safety Switch is activated by pulling a plastic coated steel cable or pressing the red stop button. This action will trip and automatically lock the switches, de-energizing the conveyor. After tripping, the blue knob resets the switch.

  • 65 Foot Cable Length (Stand-Alone Unit)
  • Cast Aluminum Housing
  • 100 Foot Cable Length (With External Tension Spring)

Dual Pull Safety Switches

The Kiepe Elektrik Dual Pull Safety Switches provide a switching system to isolate the power to conveyor systems and other process equipment in the event of an emergency. Pulling the cable operates the actuating lever, which trips the internal cam to the off position. Resetting the switch can only be achieved by means of the reset lever.

  • 330 Foot Cable Length
  • Cam-Operated Switch Elements
  • Aluminum, Cast Iron or Naval Brass Housings
  • Zone 1 and Zone 2 Explosion Proof Models Available

PRS Dual Pull Safety Switches

The New Kiepe Elektrik PRS Dual Pull Safety Switches are constructed of high impact fiber reinforced Ultramid. This economical switch is ideal for all applications including corrosive environments.

  • 330 Foot Cable Length
  • Stainless Steel Hardware
  • Fiberglass Housing

Conveyor Belt Speed Monitoring Switches

SWE Unit:

The SWE units provide monitoring of under speed, over speed and the stoppage of the shaft. Selection among the 4 different models is based on the range of Set Points. These adjustable Set Points make it possible to establish absolute acceptable under speed and over speed operation of equipment for safety and equipment protection. If the RPM exceeds the Set Point, a relay is energized. There is also a startup delay from 0.5 to 15 seconds to allow time for the conveyor to get moving on initial startup. SWE units are provided with mounting brackets. Coupling options available.

  • Compact Construction
  • Multiple Mounting Arrangements
  • Aluminum, Cast Iron or Naval Brass Housings

SW Unit:

These units detect direction of rotation and stoppage. They have two contacts. One closes when it is rotating clockwise and the other closes when it is rotating counterclockwise. Selection among the 5 different models is based on RPM's required with each switch providing two different RPM's. Selecting a falling RPM determines the speed at which the switch will disengage while selecting a rising RPM determines the speed at which the switch will engage. SW units are provided with mounting brackets. Coupling options available.

  • Compact Construction
  • Multiple Mounting Arrangements
  • Aluminum, Cast Iron or Naval Brass Housings
  • No External Power Required
  • SW Model Zone 2 (Intrinsic Safe) for Hazardous Locations

Belt Driven Speed Monitors:

These units track the belt travel directly off the belt eliminating the necessity to connect a monitor to a pulley. Available as type SWB or SWEB.

Electronic Speed Monitoring:

Advanced micro-processor for monitoring either belt speed or belt slip. Minimum and maximum monitoring of belt speed allows both high and low speed alarms. All data is displayed on an LCD panel for easy calibration and viewing of information.

  • Under/over speed Monitors
  • Slip Monitors
  • Pulse Transducers
