The primary function, for which the BeltCheck © TH 40 was designed, is to measure the wear and thickness profile across a conveyor belt, especially where the belt has embedded reinforcing steel cables. 
To satisfy this demand, the gauge sports a sensor with an extra large diameter probe area to compensate for inconsistencies in magnetic substrate due to differences in the steel cord mesh structure of the conveyor belts, and is manufactured from hardwearing materials for numerous measurements.
The BeltCheck © will even indicate, indirectly though, if the steel cords are still present if the steel cords have rusted away, for example, they loose their magnetic properties and the gauge will therefore have no magnetic substrate against which it can measure the belt thickness!
The BeltCheck © is thus an indispensable tool for maintenance and can aid the user in avoiding costly cleaning-up expenses and lost man hours due to the failure of these critical transport components. And modern electronics compensate arithmetically for other inaccuracies produced by steel cords not positioned at regular intervals.
With ease of use in mind, the design ensures that the user can make all necessary adjustments with the aid of a menu this allows for changes to be implemented quickly and simply.
**Not just another fancy vernier gauge
The BeltCheck © TH40 can be used to not only measure the rubber thickness on steel cords at the edge of a conveyor belt, but also to take rubber thickness measurements across the entire width of a belt under inspection.
So, unlike a conventional vernier gauge with the limited measuring scope of the edges of a belt, the BeltCheck © can measure in the centre of the belt where the wear is greatest the probe is connected to the gauge via a length of flexible and slightly stretchable cable for this purpose.
Combine this feature with the extra onboard non-volatile memory facility and the user can build up a usage profile in a spreadsheet application once a number of measurements have been taken
