FlexBox – the centerpiece
The FlexBox is the centerpiece of every module. It is this part, which makes the modules "intelligent" and lets them communicate once they are connected.
The FlexBox that is attached to the modules and contains a micro-controller that enables an entirely decentralized control of the conveyor system in interplay with all other connected FlexBoxes.
The calculation of the topology and the routing paths of the entire system is performed by algorithm developed by us. The modules can be connected simply through a connecting port (FlexConnect). The modules continue to have ports for power supply (FlexPower), sensors, and actors. We have developed an online configurator (FlexControl) for an individual configuration of the system.
