Industrial conveyors are often made up of an assembly of several modules. So, it is not always easy to check that the goods being moved make it to their destination without getting lost or damaged. Leti has developed an original new way to solve this problem. The device, the same size and weight of the most frequently-moved items on the conveyor, packs in accelerometers, gyrometers, and a distance sensor. With each trip down the conveyor, it picks up vibrations, impacts, rotations, and vertical movement—extremely useful information for making adjustments to the conveyor settings or troubleshooting.
