IntelliRoll is a conveyor roll that is an IIoT passive autonomous wireless weigh in motion sensor! Power is harvested from the rotating action by an onboard generator.
The IntelliRoll may replace an existing roll in an existing conveyor.
- Belt speed
- Flow rate (Computed from belt speed, idler spacing, weigh length, and weight)
- The angle of the conveyor
- The angle of the trough
The sensed data is available through 802 11 b/g/n WiFi as ModbusTCP or it can be viewed on a smartphone or computer connected to a secondary on board 802 11 b/g/n WiFi broadcasting data on UDP (Internet Protocol).
Multiple IntelliRoll communicate to each other via Xbee.
