A conveyor belt includes at least one rip detection sensor, one position detection sensor and a speed measurement sensor. In this paper, a complete sensor solution for the industrial conveyer belt is given. in this the intelligent sensors are used having one master intelligent sensor and number of slave sensors depending upon the length of the belt. The intelligent sensor system not only increases the life of the conveyer belt but also increases overall efficiency of the system and it also reduces the processing overhead of the final unit since most of the processing is done in this sensor set by the intelligent master sensor hereby increasing not only the belt life but as well as it extends the sensor life as the conveyor belt wears.
