Belt Analyst™ V20 New Features
Read below for highlights from the lastest Belt Analyst™ upgrade!
Variable Speed Drives
In Fixed Speed mode, Users now have the ability to directly input the drive system gearbox ratio, full load rpm, synchronous rpm and fluid coupling slip. Conveyor speed will then be accurately calculated based upon demand power. In Variable Speed mode (i.e. when controlled by VFD technology), users can vary the Actual Belt Speed from Case to Case to accurately calculate available torque and power when operating the conveyor at speeds between 10 to 120% of nameplate speed of the motor.
"Same As" Drives
When multiple drive pulleys and multiple motors are connected to a conveyor, users only need to input the motor and gearbox properties once and use "Same As" to automatically update all of your drives.
Case Variable Locks
If the User does NOT want a Case variable to change from Case to Case, click the Lock and every time the variable is changed in any Case or on the Case Summary, it will update all Cases.
New Plan View
Easily visualize horizontal curvature along the conveyor with a plan view of the conveyor route and direction. Export this view to dxf file to create a clear understanding of the conveyor route within your drawings.
Dynamic Takeup Update
To utilize the modern hardware on your computers, the Belt Analyst engine has been upgraded to take advantage of your memory and processing power, helping you analyze conveyor designs like never before. 64bit Belt Analyst now lets you take advantage of your computer's memory - making it much faster especially when printing and running Dynamics. This also means that Belt Analyst supports printing larger reports at once as well as longer Dynamics simulation times.
Conveyor Load On/Off Update
Better simulate your conveyor's on and off loading & easily graph expected power deman and maximum tension requirements vs time due to the loading on/off cycle. Identify temporary loading conditions that require further design or analysis.
Improved Printing Engine and Speed
The redesigned printing engine speeds up printing by removing Microsoft Word Interop calls: now relying on OpenXML to streamline page generation and increase stability. Taking advantage of the benefits of the new 64 bit framework, the printing engine has been optimized for speed.
