Belt conveyor inspection robot

1. Product Overview

ZKWS-1S is an inspection robot specially designed for belt conveyors. It is only 7 centimetres thick and weighs 8 kilograms. The track adopts a double-track design. The extreme thinness allows the robot to run smoothly between the upper and lower belts, avoiding the need for traditional inspection robots. The detection has the disadvantage of having blind spots and occupying the maintenance channel.
The whole machine has an IP66 protection level and can be washed directly. It has a built-in heating module and can adapt to low-temperature environments. It gives the robot the ability to work around the clock in extremely harsh environments such as Gobi, ports, deserts, forests, tunnels, etc., and truly realizes high-risk task substitution, reduces staff and increases efficiency.


2. Product functions

1) Video surveillance

Belt conveyor inspection

The robot is equipped with a 1080P high-definition camera and three thermal imaging cameras, which can realize remote real-time video monitoring without blind spots. The on-site situation can be checked anytime and anywhere through the operation platform and mobile phone manager.

2) Idler monitoring

belt monitoring system

Through multiple thermal imaging and sound sensors mounted on the robot, the temperature and sound of the conveyor rollers are monitored in real-time to determine whether there is an abnormality in the rollers.


3) Steel frame monitoring

belt monitoring system

The sound sensor is used to monitor the noise of the steel frame in real-time, and through time domain and frequency domain analysis, it is determined whether there are any abnormalities such as loose screws in the steel frame.

4) Environmental monitoring

The robot is equipped with a high-sensitivity smoke sensor, which can monitor smoke and fire conditions along the route during inspections to avoid major losses and safety hazards caused by fires.


5) Pedestrian monitoring

During the robot inspection process, it can monitor the presence of pedestrians on both sides of the conveyor in real time to avoid the risk of personal injury to pedestrians caused by the operation of the conveyor.


6) Autonomous inspection

The robot can independently determine whether the current conveyor is running, realize autonomous inspection when the conveyor is running, and autonomously return to the charging pile when the conveyor is stopped. Users can also customize the time to start and end inspections, as well as the frequency of inspections according to needs. It also supports personalized inspection strategies such as multiple inspections of key equipment.


7) Independent positioning

The robot has a built-in high-precision odometer, and combined with a visual algorithm, it can locate the current location of the robot in real-time, as well as the abnormal locations of the rollers and steel frames.


8) Wireless charging

The robot is powered by batteries and is charged using wireless magnetic induction. The charging process does not require contact to avoid sparks. When the robot’s power is low, it can return to the charging pile to start charging.


9) Remote control

Users can remotely control the robot through the operation platform and mobile phone manager.
