viastore systems John Clark Discusses Key Motor Driven Roller Conveyor with Easy Setup and Configuration

viastore Systems’ John Clark, discussed how over the last several years 24-volt DC motor driven conveyor roller (MDR) has been gaining ground. Ideal for accumulation, 24-volt DC MDR conveyor operates similarly to the other styles of accumulation conveyor, utilizing a photo eye to “see” an item, then triggering its respective section of rollers to stop for accumulation.

The primary differentiator is the ease of setup and configuration of the MDR conveyor. Here are 6 key features to look for in a MDR conveyor that will make system setup and configuration both easy and flexible.

They include:

  1. Advanced control card technology. The ideal MDR conveyor control card includes built-in accumulation logic for fast, easy setup out-of-the-box, as well as PC-based configuration of motor type, speed, extension and more.
  2. Adjustable roller speed.
  3. Automatic detection of operation, components.
  4. Built-in error management. Obstructions happen. When they do, the ideal MDR conveyor can easily compensate to prevent disaster with built-in jam detection, arrival timeouts and auto-resets for both.
  5. Versatile design and construction. The conveyor platform housing the rollers should feature simple design and construction with reliable, cost-effective, snap-in components to ensure that it is easy to install and maintain.
  6. Unlimited installation options.
