A conveyor system is only as good as the motor and controls that power it—which is why Dorner has revamped its Motors and Controls offering to support a variety of technologies to cover all applications.
Many industrial and sanitary conveyors require fixed speed, variable speed or indexing motor and controls product. Some systems combine all needed components, including conveyor and motor-control that are ready to run at the side of the conveyor or from a higher control source with limited set-up time.
Dorner’s motor options include technologies for both industrial and sanitary applications, such as ac, dc, brushless dc and servo.
The controls have multiple input power options and come with mounting hardware for quick installation. When ordered together, many motors and controllers will be pre-wired or have quick disconnects to mate with one another. For simple, straight-forward applications, the Remote Basic and Remote Full Featured Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) controllers are for plug-and-play use with a suite of accessories including photo eyes, push buttons and maintained push/pull switches. Additionally, they come with 24 Vdc power supply for accessories, color-coded quick disconnects, and interface for customer forward/reverse control.
