Rulmeca Corporation produced six short video tutorials to assist conveyor owners, engineers, and maintenance personnel in understanding how Rulmeca Motorized Pulleys work and how to troubleshoot them. These hermetically-sealed and internally-powered conveyor drives are ideal in harsh operating conditions, especially when space is limited and personnel safety is a concern.
VIDEO 1: INTRODUCTION TO MOTORIZED PULLEYS
This video explains how a Rulmeca Motorized Pulley motor works and presents the relationship between belt pull and conveyor drive power.
This video presents how an electric motor works, describes how Rulmeca Motorized Pulleys drive conveyor belts, and explains the relationship between belt pull, conveyor drive power, and motor current draw.
This video explains how to use a multimeter to troubleshoot a Rulmeca electric motor. Circuit diagrams explain how to measure supply voltage, motor current draw, motor winding resistance, thermal switch resistance, and motor insulation continuity.
This video demonstrates how to use a multimeter to measure supply voltage, motor current draw, motor winding resistance, thermal switch resistance, and motor insulation continuity in an actual Rulmeca Motorized Pulley terminal box.
