Brushless RollerDrive Increases Efficiency and Lowers Noise

Jan. 25, 2008
Providing a cost saving solutionby reducing energy consumption in the product life cycle, Interrollhas developed a high performance brushless RollerDrive that minimizesthe after run of products enabling the user to stop packages precisely. Designated the EC100, the RollerDrive is equipped with a zeromotion hold (ZMH) electro magnetic rotor brake and a re-engineeredgear box for higher efficiency and lower noise. The EC100 RollerDriveis ideal for conveying in postal, distribution center or light pallethandling applications."The EC100 is a versatile motorized driven roller that can bemanufactured to work with O-rings, multi-rib belts, timing beltsor chains," said Georg Malina, Global Product Manager for InterrollRollerDrive and DriveControl. "The flexible EC100 provides our customerswith a technologically advanced and economical superior alternative to traditional belt, line shaft, chain and sprocket drive systems."The EC100 RollerDrive is applied with the HC-EC100 zero pressureaccumulation (ZPA) control card for a fast and convenient set upfor self control stand alone conveyor systems.The EC100 RollerDrive enables a conveying speed up to 260 fpm andtorque capabilities up to 26 in-lbf continuous torque. Noise emissionlevels of less than 55 dBA can be achieved during operation.Interroll's EC100 RollerDrive is available in galvanized orstainless steel.• Nominal voltage • 24 VDC • Voltage range • 22 - 28 VDC • No load current • 0.6 A • Maximum continuous current • 1.8 A • Maximum peak current • 4.1 A • Mechanical Performance • 18 W • Maximum ripple from power supply • 5% Noise emission (mounted) • 55 dB(A) Lifetime under nominal conditions 15000 h System Efficiency (Drive) • 42 %
