Thanks to the simple, flexible assembly concept, your conveyor system is up and running in no time at all. The control modules are simply clipped onto the side of your conveyor system and can then communicate with each other. Our HTML5 visualization gives you an overview of the entire system - even the part that is not controlled by a flexbox. This enables you to build your own FlexConveyor© or GridSorter©.
Black is a classic I/O module that communicates via ProfiNet and Ethernet IP. Additionally, our in-house FlexNet is supported, so it can be used as an I/O extension for orange and green.
- Simple connection to PLC via Ethernet IP or ProfiNet
- Communication of the boxes via FlexNet
- Protection class: IP54
- Support of decentralized power supplies
- 2 motorized rollers (supported by Interroll & Itoh-Denki)
- Connection of 4 sensors possible
- HTML 5 based configuration
Orange has local functions and can operate sections autonomously: Local conveyor module processes are mapped in the module (e.g. transport control in a converter). In addition, the modules can also communicate with neighboring modules and thus completely autonomously control sections. For easier configuration, orange can automatically detect the topology of its section.
- Functions of the black edition
- Autonomous control of partial routes
- Optional I/O port (4 I/O + 2 O)
- Internal current measurement
- Branch capable
- External connection of accessories (barcode scanner, RFID, etc.) or scales/strapping machine etc. possible via SPS/MFR
- Continuously new functions through online updates
- Switch with 3 Ethernet ports
Autonomous decentralized control.
Predictive maintenance via internal current measurement.
Configuration via internal website, no additional software required.
Local functions e.g. local control of converters or congestion sections.
The most intelligent of our Flexboxes is more than just a control module. Green contains an integrated decentralized MFR, which completely replaces your conventional PLC and MFR. Enjoy the advantages of a plug & play capable conveyor system, which you can convert at any time in case of topology changes by simply re-plugging, without major time and cost expenditure. With green very short commissioning times can be realized.
- Functions of the orange edition
- Plug & Play capable
- Simple conversion possible by customer
- Very short commissioning times
- Integrated decentralized MFR replaces conventional PLC and MFR
- Simple external connection of ERP systems, accessories (barcode scanner, RFID, etc. ) or scales / strapping machine etc. with local evaluation and processing
- Visualization of the entire system (system status, tracking information, etc.)
Massive reduction of commissioning times.
High availability, downtimes are avoidable.
Simple and fast adaption of material flow.
Realization of rental concepts for conveyor technology possible.
Simple, direct connection and processing of external components e.g. by barcode scanner.
Ribbon cable pickup
Our self-developed ribbon cable pickup offers a continuous cabling concept which ensures supply to the modules. The two ribbon cables supply the control voltage of the modules and the motor voltage.
The cable is 1.5m long, has an RJ45 connector and is M8D coded.
