Controller for 24V motor rollers
ConveyLinx Ai2 is the most powerful and versatile controller in the Pulseroller product family. ConveyLinx Ai can basically control every possible application for 24V motor rollers and gear motors.
Out of the box ConveyLinx Ai2 is a zero pressure accumulation control for two zones. Communication from device to device is done by standard CAT 5 Ethernet cables and an Ethernet based bus. For configuration and setup EasyRoll software is needed, which can be downloaded for free. Once installed, the Laptop is connected to the first or last ConveyLinx Ai in the system. From here the auto-addressing and configuration is started. Within the configuration timers, speed, direction of rotation, acceleration and deceleration and much more can be set. Tracking data can be retrieved at any ConveyLinx Ai module for local decisions.
Used in more complex conveyor applications, ConveyLinx Ai is direct accessible from a Siemens PLC by ProfiNet without the need of any gateway. All GSD files and UDTs are available. Set up in this way, PLC can access every point of the conveyor and manipulate accordingly. Mostly decision points are influence by PLC, normal conveyor operation is handled by ConveyLinx Ai internal logic.
ConveyLinx Ai2 can also be used as a distributed I/O without any internal logic used. ConveyLinx Ai can communicate certified within following protocols: ProfiNet I/O, Ethernet IP and Modbus TCP. Due to that a reliable and fast communication to majority PLC is possible.
If there is the requirement for a more complex station control within the conveyor line like transfers or diverges, ConveyLinx Ai can be configured to act as a local PLC. It is programmed using the programming tool ConveyLogix applying ladder logic or structured text. These special functionality can extend also over two physical controllers.
For configuration data security a full backup of the system can be created very easy and quick. This backup file is not required for later maintenance or adjustment work, this can be simply done by an installed EasyRoll. Just access the conveyor system and start optimizing it. No project file is required. The backup file is for restoring operation condition if configuration got messed up.
