CBGuard is designed as a standalone system. It can be used as an integral part of the plant's monitoring
network (IoT) and communicate with other electronically monitored conveyor parts and logistical processes.
CBGuard is compatible with all types and brands of steel cord conveyor belts. It can be retrofitted in existing
Its compact layout and low weight allows a simple and quick installation, it fits into almost all conveyors.
The preferred installation location is in the lower run of the conveyor system, because the belt needs to run
flat through the tunnel of the CBGuard.
A concrete foundation and a safety fence, at a distance of approx. 2 m, have to be provided.
Outside the fence, the radiation during the operation of the CBGuard is <1 mSv/h (microSievert per hour),
which is in line with international standards.
Additional measures such as protection against external influences, the installation of calming/double idlers, a
scraper etc. may be required.
The system power supply voltage is 110 - 240 V, with a frequency of 50 or 60 Hz, a working current from 6.8
- 13.6 A, and a power consumption of 1500 W.
All features of the CBGuard Life Extender are remotely controllable and programmable over TCP/IP. Remote
access is possible from anywhere in the world. The analysis software runs on Windows 7/10/11 and Windows
Server 2016/2019/2022. The program is intuitive and easy to use.
No regular calibration, only little routine maintenance is required. Detailed, comprehensive installation and
maintenance instructions will be provided with the supply of your CBGuard.
The CBGuard works similar to X-ray systems in health diagnostics and at airports.
Its main components:
a generator-tube module, customized for best image quality and excellent performance, best-
in-class X-ray intensity and high reliability;
a state-of-the-art multi-channel DH signal acquisition system;
a high-precision A/D converter enabling seamless photography.
The generator produces artificial X-rays from electricity, with the ionising rays penetrating the
moving conveyor belt and then hitting the receiver module – an amorphous silicon imaging field.
It is a process like that of photo diodes in a digital camera. Countless, seamless images are
continuously generated and defined by CBGuard’s intelligent software – based on advanced face
and palmprint recognition algorithms – checking the condition of the belt, while accounting for
the individual structure, size, color and position of deviations, and reporting them as a specific
event (eg damage).
Level 1: No damage as per the programmed threshold detected.
The safety of the belt is not compromised.
Level 2: Moderate damage detected.
The damage should be examined on occasion.
Level 3: Severe damage detected. Alert sent to maintenance personnel.
The damage must be examined immediately.
Level 4: Threatening damage detected. Alert sent to maintenance personnel.
CBGuard stops the conveyor automatically if programmed accordingly.
