A RADICAL APPROACH TO SIMPLIFY CONVEYOR CONTROL AND AUTOMATION PRODUCTIVITY

Engineering the structure, flow and motion control of conveyor systems in highly automated production systems is difficult and time-consuming. Complex physical transport requirements—horizontal, diagonal and vertical—must be addressed in the design. Power supplies, automation buses and sensor I/O points need to be identified and integrated.

CENTRALIZED SYSTEM

Based on your answers, the most effective and stable motion control framework for your machine locates PLC and drive components in a control cabinet. However, it may be possible to modify certain motor sizing decisions to use a hybrid framework.
