Sensors detect materials on the conveyors and determine their position. Reflex light barriers are used, which require a reflecting mirror (reflector) on the opposite side of the light barrier in order to return the light beam. The sensor kit consists of the sensor and the matching plastic housing, including fastening clip. The housing can be attached directly to the roller conveyor or to a universal support.
Side guides, sensors, reflectors and other add-on components, such as scanners, are attached to the flexible universal support.Flexible universal supports are attached laterally to the profile. Each of these holders can accommodate two flexible universal support brackets.
Side guides are used for reliably guiding the product on roller conveyors and belt conveyors, as well as on the corresponding components. In particular, because of the flexible material (polymer), the guides can be adjusted to the material flow in curves, as well as when merging and diverting.
The Magnetic Speed Controller 50 is a purely mechanical speed controller that ensures a controlled, slow speed on gravity conveyors with materials weighing from 0.5 kg (1 lbs) to a maximum of 35 kg (77 lbs). The magnetic speed controller operates without a gear box, thus enabling startup for very lightweight containers. Heavy containers are transported at a controlled speed thanks to the consistently high braking performance.
A power supply is available for 24 V and zero pressure accumulation 400/460 V conveyors. The power supply units are installed in a robust cabinet, and each power supply has a main switch and internal fuse.
