Conveyor Controller

The State-of-the-Art flexible Conveyor Controller is designed to completely replace the standard PLC controller and any associated type of speed controllers. A natural Task Oriented Optimal Computing (TOOC) based system provides flexibility to build or repair virtually any conveyor setup with a “one stop” conveyor setup.

 

Adjustable speed with Fast/Slow modes operates in Left-to-Right or Right-to-Left setup scenarios. The advanced version has a built-in LCD screen that displays information on processing boards and explanations of triggered alarms. Multiple stop controllers are avaliable as a custom order.

Basic version

 

Basic Audit/Pass Conveyor Controller – This It is a complete replacement of PLC controller with full IPC-SMEMA-9851 capabilities.

 

Will do board Audit and Pass through.  This version is produced in a DIN type enclosure for standard 35mm rails (DIN EN 60715 TH35). and does not include an LCD display. 

Advanced version

 

16×2 alphanumeric LCD screen to display statistics information and regimes. Provides quantity of boards Audited and Passed since conveyor was turned ON.  This version is produced in DIN type enclosure for standard 35mm rails (DIN EN 60715 TH35), where the front is a clear panel for LCD. It is available as custom solution in panel mounted enclosure box – please send your inquiries.

The controller is powered with DC 24V and requires less than 50mA to operate. It will control up to two stepper motors and flexible initial setup allows to manage virtually any variation of step motors with precision start/stop control. Built-in stepper drivers are designed for up-to 2A per phase output current with a maximum 40V power supply.

 

Controller will accept up to two PCB sensor signals and can operate without SMEMA signals in “SMEMA OFF” mode. This regime is specifically valuable feature when it is a stand-alone “Table-to-Table” type of operation with or without audit required.

The Conveyor Controller has a provision to connect LED color light tower with an audible buzzer alarm. It provides up to 20mA output for the following lights:

RED: Failure conditions, an emergency stop or machine fault

YELLOW: Warnings, over-time passage conditions, PCB has not cleared chain

GREEN: Normal machine process operation

BLUE: External help request, PCB available for audit

The Controller can be quickly retrofitted into an existing conveyor or new conveyer. Flexible setup and advanced monitoring options can be built relatively easily.

In past a few month we are working on HERMES GUID driven controller. At this time we looking for people/organizations who may have interests in such controller and we can offer a controller with Build-In Hermes v1.0.2 standard to test.
