Decentralised automation for Power & Free conveyor facilities

Power & Free conveyor facilities are sturdy and reliable material flow systems with a high flexibility for the user. This freedom and flexibility are achieved at the planning and automation phases with the decentralised Power & Free Controller. The Power & Free Controller can be installed at any location within the machine close to the actuator, and it will control the actuator of the corresponding load trolley. Installation structures of up to 300 metres are reached via integrated energy cables and databus wires, supporting plant manufacturers in system planning, installation and supplementary plant extensions. The integrated energy management will be of great advantage to the system user regarding system operation, service and maintenance measures and high equipment availability.
