Real-time Access to Live Production Data with Loadscan’s Conveyor Volume Scanner

Loadscan’s mine-specific Conveyor Volume Scanner (CVS) allows mines to manage and optimise material flow in real-time. It’s a viable measurement alternative to traditional weight-based systems. With a measurement accuracy better than 98.5%, the CVS enables accurate real-time inventory tracking and reporting.

Load height measurement output

With the CVS you can easily identify large rocks and monitor load height on the belt (height/depth of the load material above the belt). Centre height and maximum height measurement methods are supported.

A proximity sensor ensures reliable non-contact speed measurement, eliminating the need for regular and costly recalibration. Built-in 2.4 or 5 GHz WiFi allows password-secured remote access via tablet, smartphone, laptop or company network.

Live production data
With digital and analogue integration into most external mine management or SCADA/PLC systems, the CVS allows for real-time inventory tracking and reporting. The system includes onboard Modbus TCP Server with full configuration interface, RESTful API option to communicate with external control systems, and an optional add-on I/O allowing external analogue (4-20mA) communication.

Throughput can be tracked and reported by volume or weight. It’s important to note that the CVS is an optical scanner and not a scale. Weight measurements are derived from the scanned volume and are calculated based on the customers own bulk conversion factors.

The user-friendly operator interface ensures simple implementation and delivers powerful operational reporting.

A range of frame sizes to fit most conveyor belts
In most cases the scan head would be attached to one of Loadscan’s expandable standard frames for a secure fit to the conveyor belt. The CVS system can be used with shallow and deep ‘V’ conveyor belt set-ups.

Available in three sizes, the CVS mining conveyor scanner can be adjusted to mount easily on a variety of belt sizes, providing maximum flexibility to suit most conveyor systems.
