Zero Pressure Accumulation Conveyor
Hytrol’s EZLogic®, or “Electronic Zero-pressure Logic” Accumulation System, combines the sensing accuracy of photo-electronics with discrete electronic logic control without the use of a PLC or pneumatic logic components.
Selectable Modes of Operation
- Singulation Mode – Product separates while traveling down the conveyor and when it is released from the conveyor - creating a zone-length gap between products.
- Enhanced Slug Mode w/ Jam Protection – Product does not separate when traveling down the conveyor or when it is released from the conveyor. This allows higher product throughput at any given conveyor speed. Product will not separate on the conveyor even when accumulation has been activated at the discharge end.
- Cascaded Slug Release – Rather than releasing all zones simultaneously, this function introduces a momentary delay in the release of each zone, from discharge upstream.
- Dynamic Zone Allocation – Automatically adjusts the conveyor’s zone length to accommodate the length of the product being conveyed. Improves conveyor efﬁciency and system ﬂ exibility.
