Decentralised zero-pressure pallet conveyance solution

05 February 2018

Interroll is expanding its decentralised control and drive concept for zero-pressure unit load handling with the addition of a solution for pallet conveyance. 

The new Pallet Control 6000 control unit forms a key component of the company’s complete solution, which includes the conveyor rollers, the MultiControl and the Interroll Pallet Drive. It allows the use of 400V AC drive technology.?

This solution is said to make uninterrupted, trouble-free material flow easier to achieve. Traditionally, zero-pressure pallet conveyance required the use of a PLC, software and additional pneumatics to ensure an automated flow of goods at the transfer points to, for example, the stacking machines or lifts in the warehouse. The Interroll solution eliminates the need for centralised PLC cabling and PLC programming.

The new control unit serves as a link between the drive and MultiControl, which again provides the complete logic for zero-pressure conveyance.
