Belt Testing Machine with Messung’s NX-ERA Xpress PLC Series

The belt center distance measurement is standard practice to measure the center distance of the flat belt and V belt. The belts are tested at a particular load in LBF at this load; the objective of the system is to find out the exact center distance and belt override of the belts.

Some constituents of the testing apparatus are:

  • Pulleys – to stretch the belt and insert it
  • Load Cell – to measure the load or belt tension
  • Transducer – to calculate the belt override
  • Servo system – to generate the desired load
  • Magnetic Linear Scale – to measure the distance



This system is majorly used in the engine manufacturer industry. The belts are tested for their reliability and durability.


Our customer specializes in the Manufacturing of Standard & Customized Measuring equipment. These equipments are designed as per Industry Standards. Integrated with the latest technologies, these equipments provide reliable & efficient testing operations.


Messung is among the best PLC automation companies in India. Our engineers studied the plant and its requirements and came up with a solution consisting of

  • NX-ERA XPRESS XP325 PLC Controller
  • 7 inch HMI Display Touch Screen
  • Servo System (Fuji)

Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) have been used in various control systems in order to increase efficiency, reduce the initial investment and minimize the long-term maintenance costs.

The NX ERA EXPRESS based machine offers a cutting edge user experience (UX). The screen – a plc automation control panel – allows the user to set test parameters, view test values during and after the test, and record test memories for future references. It allows the user to have overall control over the entire test program with just a touch.


NX-ERA Xpress is a powerful mini PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) promoted by Messung – a leading micro PLC manufacturer. NX-ERA Xpress offers world-class technology at a cost-effective price for entry-level applications.

Loaded with advanced features, the NX-ERA Xpress micro PLC delivers high-speed processing power in a condensed design with embedded I/O. This micro PLC system can be easily expanded through the CANopen device using the Remote I/O Modules – a considerable advantage for OEMs with needs for small, scalable applications.
