ConveyLinx Networked Drive Control

ConveyLinx is our advanced high-end networked motor drive controller which provides many innovative features for zero pressure accumulation (ZPA) or ANY application utilizing low voltage brushless DC motors.

ConveyLinx gives you in-depth control of virtually every possible motor driven roller (MDR) application in use today. Out of the box, it functions as a zero pressure accumulation (ZPA) controller for either two PULSEROLLER Senergy motor rollers or two of our Pulse Gear Drives. This is accomplished by connecting two drive motors, two sensors, supplementary I/O, and standard Cat5 shielded ethernet cable to the next downstream card.

To configure our standard ConveyLinx control, you go to the most upstream module, and simple press the Install button on the card to begin the installation process.

When it comes to more complex conveyors, ConveyLinx can be directly connected to most major brand PLC's using ProfiNet, Modbus, or EthernetIP. All required GSD and EDS files are available. Once a PLC is connected it may take control over any and every zone in the conveyor system if required. There are certain levels of "control" a PLC can use such as "ZPA Mode" which gives you basic control over motor speed, accumulation points, and tracking.
 
There is also a PLC mode which gives you access to every single I/O and register available on the card which effectively turns the card into a motor starter and I/O block. ConveyLinx Ethernet capabilities also allow for EthernetIP and ModbusTCP giving you many more options for PLC connectivity.

ConveyLinx also supports internal tracking for your ZPA system.  Tracking data can be passed from zone to zone automatically as product travels down the conveyor system. If there are complex mechanical control on the conveyor such as pushers, transfers, mergers, or diverters, you can use the internal tracking to make the appropriate decision.

Our software tool, ConveyLogix, allows you to create your own customized programs and download directly into ConveyLinx for control of all motors and I/O, effectively transforming the module into a fully functional PLC. This type of control makes it perfect for controlling the more complex mechanical devices on a system without the use of another PLC.

When the conveyor is fully configured and ready for operation, a backup of all parameters and settings can be made to save them for further use. However this backup file is not required for later adjustments or changes to the conveyor. All further changes and adjustments only need an installed version of EasyRoll on your PC or laptop.

    ConveyLinx gives you in-depth control of virtually every possible motor driven roller (MDR) application in use today.  It can also be connected to most major brand PLC's using ProfiNet, Modbus, or EthernetIP with all required support files available for download here (link). Once a PLC is connected, ConveyLinx can be configured to take control over every zone in the conveyor system. (The technology you use makes a difference. Ensure the conveyor company uses technology that’s configurable, proven, highly customizable, low cost, and efficient.)

    Gives You Complete Control Over the System

    ConveyLinx offers the user three levels of control. The first is default ZPA mode, which allows basic control over motor speed, zone accumulation, internal tracking and zone communication. Second is is PLC mode, in which the card’s default internal logic program is suspended, allowing a PLC to connect and take full control of the card’s I/O and registers. This mode effectively turns the card into a motor starter and I/O block. Third, the card’s internal logic can be suspended, and an operator can use ConveyLogix software to create customized programs with direct download to the ConveyLinx controller. This allows an operator to control all motors and I/O, effectively transforming the module into a fully functional PLC. This type of control makes it perfect for controlling the more complex mechanical devices on a system without the use of another PLC.

    Looking back on my childhood, sometimes I think it is a wonder some of us survived.  My mother had 5 children and worked full time as a nurse.  Understandably, after a hard day at the hospital, she often tended to be a bit lax on keeping constant tabs on all 5 of us.  I can hear her now shouting out into the back yard or into the basement where
