Conveyor- og drevteknologi

Inden for conveyor-teknologien kan ASi virkelig bruge sine stærkeste sider. Illustrationen herunder giver et overblik over de udgiftssparende løsninger inden for conveyor- og drevteknologien fra Bihl+Wiedemann.

Drive Solutions with AS-Interface

Det internationalt standardiserede forbindelsessystem AS-Interface (AS-i) har for længst stået sin prøve, også inden for conveyor-teknologien. Talrige firmaer nyder godt af fordelene ved AS-i: enkel installation, høj fleksibilitet, lave omkostninger.

LIP Bygningsartikler saves now 22% of the total cost on their conveyor modules thanks to an ASi solution from Bihl+Wiedemann. Each module and the complete system is connected through an ASi network with integrated safety from Bihl+Wiedemann. New conveyor modules can be added simply without additional wiring from the main PLC.

Product manager Tom Minges presents our wide range of drive solutions and explains the advantages of ASi products. For example, the ASi motor modules can be used to efficiently control 24 V and 48 V motorized rollers from Interroll, Itoh Denki, RULMECA and other manufacturers. As for frequency inverters, we offer solutions for SEW, NORD, Rockwell and Lenze, for example.

Direkte styring af DC motorer

Bihl+Wiedemann tilbyder med AS-i motormoduler den passende løsning til conveyor systemer. Som et eksempel kan 24 V motorruller styres direkte via AS-i. Det er ikke nødvendigt med en ekstra styreenhed. Ydermere sparer du tid og penge på idriftsættelse og serviceeftersyn.

Decentral styring af AC motorer

Der er desuden mulighed for at styre de trefasede vekselstrømsdrev decentralt med en frekvensomformer. Dette giver en væsentlig forudsætning for at realisere nye, mere enkle anlægsstrukturer. Hvordan AS-i-modulerne kan anvendes i praksis, viser følgende eksempel.
