Loadscan announces the launch of its conveyor volume scanner (CVS) – a reliable tool to tell you how much material is moving across a conveyor belt.
Like the successful load volume scanner before it, the newly released Loadscan CVS system is set apart by its uniquely clever software and friendly web-based user interface. Unlike other optical belt scales, which provide some data but don’t integrate easily, the Loadscan CVS has been designed to provide you with hassle-free, insightful reporting.
The CVS is an above belt lidar laser measurement system making it perfect for production management to understand inventory production rates in volume and tonnes, in real time or for the accurate measurement of contract crushing quantities.
The CVS has loads of functionality with an onboard API that enables setting up a list of jobs from your dispatch system to deliver the specified job quantities which can be reported direct to the Loader operators cab allowing the starting of a job run to be initiated by the loader operator.
With the correct size frame, the CVS can run on any belt from 400- to 2,000-mm wide and can be custom mount for larger belts including deep belts to measure even greater quantity of product.
The CVS continues the tradition of high build quality; it is robust and will withstand a wide temperature range in harsh environments.
“I am excited about the release of the CVS product as it is a complementary product to our LVS truck scanner that our customers have asked about for a long time to complete their volumetric production tracking on their conveyor belts,” said Carey West, owner and director of Loadscan. “The development team have done a great job in making the system simple design so it is easy to install and the software interface is stacked with functionality and is super user friendly.”
Loadscan’s original load volume scanner (LVS) utilizes laser scanning technology combined with proprietary Loadscan software to measure the exact volume of the material loaded in a truck or trailer bin.
With this system you’ll measure actual volume, not a converted weight estimate while also recording a 3D-color profile of every load. It means you don’t pay for water content, you can eliminate customer and/or supplier disagreements over quantity, and you can easily track material movements.
