Non-contact off-track detection at high temperatures as well as hazardous areas


With the help of the sensors as well as suitable light guides from the company Tippkemper-Matrix, it is possible to realize a off-track detection under the most advers conditions.


  • High accuracy up to +/- 0,1mm
  • Can be used in Ex-Zone 0, 1, 2, 20, 21, 22
  • Can be used op to 400°C outside temperature
  • Compact housing

When using conveyor belts under high temperatures or in hazardous areas, the requirements for electronics as well as measuring devices are extremly high. Nevertheless, a fault-free off-track run must be ensured, because a fault can lead to considerable damage to the whole system. For their special requirements, the Tippkemper-Matrix company offers a wide range of optoelectronic sensors and measuring systems to fulfill the individual requirements of the costumer. With the help of sensors, measuring systems and light guides which specially developed for hazardous areas, it is possible to guarantee a safer process. With the use of cross-section converters, the misalignment of a conveyor belt can be detected over a distance of +/- 30 mm with an accuracy of +/- 0.1 mm up to Ex-Zone 0 or Zone 20. Because of the variable light guide length, the sensor can be mounted up to Zone 1. The long expertise and experience in optoelectronics for hazardous areas gives Tippkemper-Matrix the knowledge to realize the wishes of the customer quickly and efficiently.
