Motion Control - Moving Machinery Monitoring

Sultan 234P - Acoustic Wave Technology
Moving Machinery Monitoring to 195m (640ft)

Principle of Operations
The SULTAN 234P Master which is generally mounted on moving machinery, emits a high powered acoustic wave transmit pulse.
The pulse is detected by a Slave transducer mounted on a fixed position which immediately emits a pulse back to the Master on the moving machinery.
The Master transmitter calculates transit times and provides a 4-20mA output proportional to the position of the moving machinery in relation to the Slaves fixed position.
There is NO wiring requirement between the Master and Slave transducers, which allows for easy retro fit to existing shuttle conveyors, cranes, stackers, reclaimers, etc.
Dust, Background noise, wet atmosphere, high winds can be compensated for by proper selection of operating frequency of the transducer.
e.g. Use lower frequency transducers where high dust, high wind conditions prevail.

Primary Areas of Applications

Mining:
Shuttle conveyor positioning.
Stacker/reclaimer positioning.
Stacker/reclaimer collision protection.
Transfer conveyor positioning.

Power Stations:
Shuttle conveyor positioning.
Transfer conveyor positioning.
Bunker discharge wagon positioning.

Smelters:
Crane collision control - positioning.

Container Ports / Port Cranes:
Crane collision control - positioning

Function
The Sultan 234P is a non contact, two piece Master and Slave distancing transmitter for ranges up to 195 metres.

Features:

  • Non contact position control.
  • Low installation costs, low purchase price.
  • Ranges from 0-20m (65ft) (30kHz version) to 0-195m (640ft) (5kHz version).
  • Does not rely on any mechanical connection that may slip because of the material on the rails (Encoder problems).
  • Communications: HART, GOSHAWK, MODBUS (PROFIBUS AND FIELDBUS PENDING).
  • On power-up, instantly knows its position.
  • No interconnecting cable required between the Master and Slave transducers.
  • No wearing parts, no maintenance costs.
  • Easy alignment adjustment (not critical like laser instruments
  • Easy to retrofit existing machines
  • Not affectd by reflecting surfaces eg roof struts, brackets, guard rails, trailing cables.
  • Either Master or Slave can be mounted on moving machinery.
