An energy efficient all-purpose conveyor drive
14 May 2012
Interroll's new 24Vdc RollerDrive EC310 uses up to 30% less energy and recycles brake energy. Thanks to its simple control technology, the space-saving EC310 significantly simplifies zero line pressure accumulation conveyor technology compared with conventional systems and can be integrated seamlessly into new or existing logistics systems. The system is available in protection ratings from IP54 to IP66.
The conveyor drive offers outstanding torque at all speeds with good acceleration/ braking performance, optimum energy-savings, low operating temperature and excellent start-stop performance for all unit load handling applications. Thanks to the new generation of control technology, all components are combined in one functional unit.
The individual conveyor modules only run when there are containers present; once these have been moved off, the conveyor modules no longer run but continue to be ready for transporting product. In comparison, a typical zero pressure accumulation conveyor with a flat belt or line shaft has much higher energy consumption and noise emissions.
The Interroll RollerDrive EC310 is ideal as a drive for all zero pressure accumulation conveyor applications for use with lightweight to heavyweight containers. The versatility of the electronically commutated drive roller with its compact integral 24VDc motor, electronics and gears, makes system planning, construction and operation much simpler.
The RollerDrive EC310 has nine gear speeds, enabling the drive to be easily adapted, while the integral controller guarantees a constant conveyor speed in the specific load-bearing area. When the material being conveyed brakes, the EC310 feeds back energy, not only improving the energy balance of the system and reducing costs but also ensuring lower motor operating temperature.
