Controls & Drivers

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.

ZoneControl

The ZoneControl controls the RollerDrive EC310 in every single zone and is used for zero pressure accumulation conveyors that require no advanced control. Additional functions and communication to upstream and downstream conveyors are provided via digital inputs and outputs (I/Os). For communication between ZoneControls, a standard CAT-5 cable is used. The configuration of the ZoneControl can simply be handled by DIP switches. Two versions of conveyor logic are available: individual or train release.

  • Adjustment of 15 speeds internally and 7 speeds externally via I/O’s
  • Choice of direction of rotation
  • Start signal input (optically isolated)
  • Rotational direction signal input (optically isolated)
  • Fault signal output (optically isolated)
  • LED status display
  • Sealed cable openings for IP54

ConveyorControl

ConveyorControl is a versatile control system for RollerDrive EC310, particularly for use in conveyors with zero pressure accumulation. The flexible solution consists of four control modules with varying functions. A Windows-based software is used for addressing and parameterizing the modules. The connection to the voltage supply and communication of the modules is ensured with simple cabling using flat ribbon cables. The cables, which are identical to AS-i cabling, are quickly and securely connected to the modules using piercing technology. The design of all modules and other components of the system according to the degree of protection IP54 corresponds to the requirements of industrial systems.

The four control modules include SegmentControl, ComControl, CentralControl and GatewayControl.

SegmentControl controls up to two zones of a conveyor. Each zone consists of a RollerDrive EC310, several conveyor rollers and a zone sensor. Additional inputs and outputs are not available.

ComControl is responsible for the control of one zone of a conveyor. Similar to SegmentControl, a connection for a RollerDrive and for a zone sensor is available. In addition, there are two additional inputs and 3 additional outputs. ComControl is used where additional input or output signals must be wired or a branching of the communication line is necessary.

CentralControl controls the data exchange between the modules. A USB interface allows connecting a USB line and, as a result, a connection to a computer. With the help of the computer and the configuration software, all modules can be addressed and parameterized. Up to 100 modules, that is, approximately 200 zones, can be connected to one CentralControl.

GatewayControl essentially offers the same functions as CentralControl: Data exchange between the modules and also a USB interface. But the crucial difference is the interface function to a fieldbus via an M12 connector. For the fieldbuses Profibus, Profinet and EtherNet/IP, the GatewayControl enables the connection to a master control system.

The Configurator enables creating of a layout and, as a result, setting the parameters of each drive, each sensor and many logistics functions. In addition, the Configurator simplifies addressing the modules. The operating software is available under Downloads/Software.

In principle, the use of CentralControl or GatewayControl provides different control options. With the help of CentralControl, a conveyor with zero pressure accumulation can be easily set up. It operates independently, without PLC and offers necessary connections for handshake signals at the required points via ComControl.

If GatewayControl is used instead of CentralControl, two application options are offered: "Full PLC control" or "I/O PLC control". In each case, a connected PLC receives the status of each connected RollerDrive and each sensor. The exact fault status of each component can also be analyzed. In case of an "I/O PLC control", the PLC can affect the existing logic for zero pressure accumulation by using a variety of functions and change basic functions, such as speed or direction of rotation, during operation. The main function "Full PLC control" can also be selected as an alternative. In this case, each drive can be freely controlled via the PLC or each sensor status can be queried. There are many control options beyond transporting with zero pressure accumulation, e.g., it is possible to control a diverter.

The control modules DriveControl 20 and DriveControl 54 are the universal interface for RollerDrive EC310. 15 different speeds as well as the direction of rotation can be set using DIP switches. Optically decoupled digital I/O‘s act as the interface to a PLC. Two different housing designs with IP20 or IP54 enable wide range of applications.

  • Adjustment of 15 speeds internally and 7 speeds externally via I/O’s
  • Choice of direction of rotation
  • Start signal input (optically isolated)
  • Rotational direction signal input (optically isolated)
  • Fault signal output (optically isolated)
  • LED status display
  • Sealed cable openings for IP54

MultiControl

The MultiControl is a certified network interface card for PROFINET, EtherNet/IP and EtherCAT to control RollerDrive EC310. With a single MultiControl, it is easy to choose any one of these different field buses. With help of the MultiControl, sensors and RollerDrive are directly integrated in to the field bus level. No additional sensor/actor level is necessary. A standard ribbon cable is used for power wiring. This offers enormous flexibility for stock management as well as for planning and installation of conveyors.

Stopping connected RollerDrive without losing the position information of materials is possible if sensors and MultiControl are supplied via a second flexible flat cable. The MultiControl can control four conveyor zones, allowing to four RollerDrive and four sensors. Four additional, individually configurable I/O’s can be connected by using a y-shaped cable.

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 MultiControls is possible. Furthermore, the sequence of MultiControl placement in the conveyor line can be detected, saving time during the on-site start-up phase. The MultiControl communicates with the PLC in real time (minimum device interval of 2 milliseconds), is easy to handle and works for nearly all applications.

  • Easy handling: one control card for PROFINET, EtherNet/IP and EtherCAT field busses
  • Functional safety thanks to certified network interface card
  • Independent power wiring for RollerDrive and sensors possible
  • Additional use as an individual control for special applications – Interroll can program your software solution
  • Plug-and-play replacement: no addressing or configuration needed
