the coil and fiberglass section at sufficient distance from
the machinery to be protected to allow for belt travel after
the detector shuts down the drive motor. The useable sensitivity
setting will depend primarily on the environmental conditions
near the search coil and therefore, it is important to reduce
vibration and to place the search coil in an area free from
moving masses of metal. Consideration should also be given to
practical removal of the contaminated logs.
search coil and fiberglass section support structure may be
installed directly on the conveyor. If installed on the conveyor
support stringers, a non-metal material should be placed between
the search coil and stringers to prevent direct coil to metal
contact. If a metal support structure is made independent of
the conveyor. All structural steel members in the environment
near the search coil must be welded in addition to bolting.
It is important
that the fiberglass (or wood) section does not contact any coil
inside surfaces, even when under maximum load conditions. We
suggest 3/4"-1" clearance between the coil and section. In the
construction of the metal free section do not use metal fasteners
inside the coil area nor within a one foot distance from the
entrance and exit of the coil .
