The Design of VI-Based Synthesized Testing System for Belt Conveyors
Because of the resistances to the belt’s motion in belt conveyors mainly caused by friction and frictional wear of the belt being one of key factors to effect its service life, the paper gives a simple qualitative investigation of frictional characteristic of the belt from its material behavior. Using stimulant coefficient of friction, it could make quantitative analysis for the resistances to the belt’s motion caused by friction etc, and design a belt conveyors synthesized testing system, the aim of the system is to test stimulant coefficient of friction under more type conveyors and more operating modes. Measurement and control of the system is based on VI(Virtual Instrument) software——LabVIEW, and in consequence it simplifies the hardware of the system, it also enhances human-computer interaction of the system’s operational interface.
