The switch is housed in a dust and weatherproof enclosure with IP65-grade of protection. The contact roller is supported on poly plastic bearing (Delrin) having high relativity of lubrications and the lowest coefficient of friction. This assures the smooth operation of the roller over a long period of time. The roller mechanism is of a self-reset type. The enclosure is epoxy painted to withstand harsh climates.
For the normal running of the Belt Sway switch with acceptable swaying, the belt-sway switch is generally mounted on both sides and near the edge of the conveyor belt. A is generally mounted on both sides and near the edge of the conveyor belt. A small clearance is allowed between the contact roller and the belt edge to allow the normal running of the belt with acceptable swaying. When swaying exceeds the normal limit, the belt edge pushes the contact roller, which drives the switch and operates the contacts. The switch resets automatically when the belt resumes normal running.
