DriveControl 54

Control of RollerDrive EC310 in applications without start-stop operation, e.g. in roller curves. Mechanical engineering applications. Applications with PLC, but without fieldbus. Small applications with max. 10 RollerDrive (cabling effort). Applications with anticipated splashing water or sprinkler system. Applications in freezer area.

The DriveControl 54 is a simple control for the RollerDrive EC310. It does not contain any logic (e.g. for zero-pressure accumulation conveying) and requires external signals. The DriveControl 54 has a protection rating of IP54 and, as a result, is suitable for use in wet environments or freezer conditions.

DIP switches can be used to set the direction of rotation, a start and braking ramp and the speed in 15 increments. Digital inputs and outputs serve as interface to a higher-level control. This enables setting the direction of rotation and the speed in 7 increments, e.g. from a PLC. The braking energy of the RollerDrive EC310 is fed back into the 24-V supply system. The voltage fed back from the RollerDrive EC310 is limited at 30 V by means of the integral brake chopper (voltage-dependently switched load resistance).

ZoneControl

Zero-pressure accumulation conveying (ZPA) of a few to many zones in applications with or without PLC, but without fieldbus.

The ZoneControl is a single-zone control for a RollerDrive EC310 and a zone sensor. The ZoneControl can be used to create stand-alone, zero-pressure accumulation conveyors which require no higher-level control (PLC). Additional functions and communication to upstream and downstream conveyors can be implemented via digital inputs and outputs (I/Os).

The advantage is that the ZPA logic is contained in the ZoneControl and does not have to be programmed within a PLC. DIP switches can be used to set the RollerDrive speed and direction of rotation as well as the logic (single or train release). For all ZoneControl connected with each other, the speed can also be changed with an analog signal.

The wiring of the voltage supply is done via switching wire and communication using commercial CAT5 cables (Ethernet cable). The ZoneControl is only partially suited when a tracking of materials or the control of the RollerDrive with start and brake ramps is being planned or a large number of additional functions is to be used.

The ZoneControl shows its strength in the fact that it does not have to be addressed, which makes an exchange in case of a failure extremely easy, and it can easily be configured with DIP switches.

ConveyorControl

With CentralControl: zero-pressure accumulation conveying (ZPA) of many zones without connected PLC. Or ZPA with input from a PLC connected via digital inputs and outputs.With GatewayControl: zero-pressure accumulation conveying (ZPA) of many zones with input from a PLC connected via fieldbus. Or universal control (not just ZPA) with PLC connected via fieldbus.

The ConveyorControl system includes the GatewayControl, the CentralControl, the SegmentControl and the ComControl (Possible applications).

Cost-efficient, commercially available flat cables are used for wiring the communication and voltage. All settings are made with a Windows-based software – the Configurator. The software simplifies addressing and enables GUI-supported parameter setting of up to 200 RollerDrive and sensors simultaneously. The configuration of an existing application can be read out from the controls and changed as needed.

The advantage is that the ZPA logic is included and does not have to be programmed within a PLC. The ConveyorControl system allows tracking materials and offers a large number of setting options and additional functions.

  • Logic for zero-pressure accumulation conveying incl. initialization
  • Communication via bus system
  • Configurator allows the setting of (individually, in groups or all nodes): speed, direction of rotation, start and stop ramp of RollerDrive; sensor properties; timer; error handling; logic for single/train release
  • Status display with LEDs
  • Additional functions: running the conveyor empty, external start or stop signal
  • Interface to PROFIBUS, PROFINET or EtherNet/IP
  • Voltage limitation via brake chopper
  • Plug & Play in case of replacements – no addressing or configuration required

MultiControl

Zero-pressure accumulation conveying (ZPA) of many zones. Control of the Interroll Transfer and the Interroll High Performance Divert. Control of RollerDrive EC310 in applications without zero-pressure accumulation conveying.

The MultiControl is a four-zone control. This means that up to four RollerDrive EC310 and four zone sensors can be connected. The use of Y-lines enables connecting four additional inputs or outputs. The connections can be configured individually.

If MultiControl is used as a network card, the fieldbuses PROFINET, EtherNet/IP or EtherCat can be used by simply toggling them.

With help of the MultiControl, sensors and RollerDrive are directly integrated in to the field bus level. No additional sensor/actuator level is necessary. A standard ribbon cable is used for power connection. The ribbon cable can be cut to the correct length and can be connected very quickly using the penetration technology of MultiControl.

Switching off connected RollerDrive without interrupting the communication is possible if the MultiControl features a second ribbon cable for voltage supply.

The addressing and naming is done over PLC software, a web user interface, or with the Interroll Teach-In method. With the Teach-In method, automatic addressing and configuration of all MultiControl is possible. In addition, the sequence of all MultiControls in the conveyor line can be determined. This saves time during the commissioning on site.

MultiControl can also be used as individual control for special applications. Interroll offers the programming of special software solutions if it cannot be done using a PLC.

PowerControl

Voltage supply of MultiControl or ConveyorControl system via flat cable. Voltage supply of DriveControl or ZoneControl via round cable.

The PowerControl is a 3-phase power supply (400 V AC) in an IP54 housing for providing the 24-V DC system voltage. The power supply is perfectly adjusted to the current requirements of the RollerDrive EC310. For up to four seconds, the power supply furnishes a current of 30 A. Hence, the power supply facilitates the simultaneous starting of multiple RollerDrive.

The power supply is designed for decentral use. It does not have to be integrated in a costly switch cabinet and can be fastened directly on the side profile of the conveyor. Cable can be saved by placing it in the vicinity of the RollerDrive control. Thanks to the short cables, problems due to cable voltage losses are minimized. Two connections are available for the primary side so that the voltage for the next PowerControl can be looped through.

  • No installation in switch cabinet required
  • Self-protection against overload, feedback, short circuit and load drop
  • System compatible due to low cold start current (inrush) and active power factor correction
  • No power reduction (derating) over the entire operating temperature range of the Interroll controls
  • Multiple terminal points on mains and load side; no special or expensive connector required
  • Cable entry via M20 fittings including seals
  • Maintenance-free

Pallet Control PC 6000

Interroll is expanding its decentralized control and drive concept, which has been used successfully for years with the Interroll 24 V DC RollerDrive and the Interroll MultiControl for zero-pressure-accumulation unit load handling. Now, the portfolio also includes a special solution for 400 V AC pallet conveyors.

The new intelligent control unit serves as a link between the 400 V AC Pallet Drive and Interroll's proven 24 V MultiControl, which again provides the complete logic for zero-pressure-accumulation conveyors. However, this solution eliminates the need for centralized PLC cabling and PLC programming.

The integrated soft start function reduces the starting torque, which relieves the load on all mechanical components, thereby providing for optimum pallet acceleration. Pallet overrun after the Pallet Drive has been switched off is also regulated by Pallet Control.

The new control offers many of functions and supports preventive maintenance. The Pallet Control Configurator, which can be downloaded from the Interroll website, allows to easily change parameters or modify the direction of rotation via the USB connection of the Pallet Control, without having to move and replug cables. Current and power can be monitored and the current status is displayed. In addition, the total operating time of the respective Pallet Drive is displayed, which allows to preventively arrange the necessary maintenance. This reduces maintenance requirements and possible downtimes to a minimum.

A thermal protection contact and continuous analysis of current consumption protect the Pallet Drive against overload. The optional brake in the Pallet Drive is also activated via Pallet Control. Alternatively, Pallet Control can be activated via other 24 V digital inputs or a 0-10 V DC analogue input.
