Designed for a variety of material handling applications, Interroll’s high performance brushless RollerDrive meets the market’s demands for moving unit loads at higher speeds with improved control capabilities. Designated the EC200, the 24V DC-powered RollerDrive combines high speed and integrated intelligent electronics, coupled with an operating life that can exceed 15,000 hours, to provide a solution that offers optimal power, reliability and endurance. “The EC200 is a safe and economical alternative to chain and belt driven conveyors that is ideal for a wide range of applications, including the pharmaceuticals industry, distribution centers and order picking systems,” said Ken Bobick, Global Product Manager for Interroll RollerDrives. “The integrated motor controls ease installation and interface with both PNP and NPN sensors, making the EC200 a versatile roller drive solution.” The four-quadrant controller permits controlled accelerations and decelerations as well as constant conveyor speeds over the entire weight range. The integrated control system featuring intermittent locked-motor monitoring ensures a safe shutdown in the event of an overload and automatic restarting. The EC200 virtually eliminates possible overloads of the electronic circuitry and mechanical systems, lowering the risk of outages and raising efficiency levels. With conveyor speeds of up to 200 ft./min. (1.0 m/sec), the EC200 increases material flow rates considerably, at weights of up to 110 lbs. (50 kg). Due to the optimized motor-gearbox configuration, noise emission levels of less than 60 dBA can be achieved. Boasting a service life of 15,000 hours, this state-of-the-art component is synonymous with reliability and streamlined operational costs. It is available in carbon steel or stainless steel tubing with a diameter of 1.9 inches. (50 mm).
