24 Volt Conveyor (Motorized Drive Roller MDR)
The 24VDC Conveyor system is made up of modules. A module is defined as straights, curves, right angle transfers, merges and diverts. Programmable logic controllers control the modules. The modules themselves are further divided into “zones.” Product can accumulate within each zone if needed. The zones contain photoelectric sensors and reflectors. When the photoelectric beams are interrupted, this signals to the PLC that product is present in that zone. 24VDC can run in singulate mode, or train mode. Normal transport mode is available if specified. In singulate mode, a product will not move into a zone until that zone is clear. In train (slug) mode, a product will move into a zone as the previous product is moving out of that zone.
