FKI Logistex announces NB200 belt-driven roller conveyor
The NB200 provides customers with the option of three standard release modes, which can be changed quickly and easily with selectable switch settings. The NB200 conveyor offers enhanced ease of maintenance and reduced belt wear. The conveyor includes a unique self-tracking feature that recognizes when the belt has shifted to the left or the right, reducing maintenance requirements. The conveyor also operates without the use of a chain, eliminating the need for oil and making it ideal for clean environments such as food, beverage and pharmaceutical processing facilities.
The NB200s accumulation and release modes are derived from proven FKI Logistex zone control logic that maximize throughput. Multiple accumulation and release modes options allow the NB200 to provide reliable high density accumulation and release throughput. Flexible accumulation options include downstream zone look-ahead that allows product to move downstream at the best possible rate while maintaining gentle zero-pressure accumulation.
The NB200 includes the ability to switch between slug and singulation release modes to match the flow demands of an application. The NB200 also offers an innovative dynamic auto-slug feature, which is a built-in option that allows the NB200 accumulation zones to self-monitor product density and move groups of product downstream when space is available. This option increases accumulation throughput by 10% over other similar accumulation methods.
The NB200 is part of the fully interoperable LCCS product line, which includes the RT200 Right-Angle Transfer System and the MR200 Motorized Roller Conveyor. The LCCS family combines superior performance, reliability, throughput and ease of maintenance with the latest energy-saving features to reduce operating costs. The run-on-demand capabilities minimize wear and energy consumption, increasing operating efficiency.
ZC200 Zone Control
The LCCS family takes advantage of the new Logistex ZC200 Zone Control that includes on-conveyor zero-contact and zero-pressure accumulation logic control. Each zone controller includes all pre-programmed zone logic options, reducing spare parts and eliminating the need for specialized controls expertise or configuration software for quick product changes.
The ZC200 handles simple to sophisticated control requirements with easy switch settings for flexible zone control modes, such as singulation and slug release, multiple zone look-ahead accumulation options, dynamic auto-slug, automatic downstream jam detection, and sleep mode to reduce noise and extend belt life. Custom logic control, status monitoring and system-level configuration can be accomplished by adding a zone director integrated via system level networking. Designed for minimal maintenance and reduced commissioning time, the ZC200s built-in logic and integral wiring harness requires no tools for installation and commissioning.
