    Aug 08, 2016 Aug 08, 2016 I have a dual drive conveyor that is starting to puzzle me. One side has always had a bit of a resonance, but lately, when the belt is unloaded and first staring up I'm starting to get a pretty violent shudder on the motor and platform. There is one Vibe sensor on the input of the gearbox that shuts the system down at .6 In/Sec. The vibe sensor has been tripping during start ups
