A belt conveyor usually consists of two or more pulleys, with a continuous loop of material (belt) that rotates about them. One or both of the pulleys are powered, moving the belt and the material on the belt forward. There are two main industrial classes of belt conveyors: general material handling (moving boxes along inside a factory) and bulk material handling (transporting industrial/agricultural materials).
Honeywell manufactures many MICRO SWITCH switches that may be used in conveyor applications. They are designed to help control position, flow, and machine safety.
