Automated tire separating in the conveying line

Just as traffic lights regulate the flow of traffic, ZoneControl MultiTask photoelectric sensors control the flow of tires on a belt – without the need for a programmable logic controller (PLC) or another type of external control. This process is known as zero pressure accumulation (ZPA). The ZoneControl solutions are extremely easy to install: integrate the MultiTask photoelectric sensors into the conveyor system, operate them in series, and connect the pneumatic line or the connection to the motor-driven rollers. There is therefore no need for programmable logic controller programming and expensive cabling. Versions with various mounting configurations for different mounting requirements are available.

  • Following product families can be used
    • Three mounting types: mounting between the rollers (R/IR), mounting on the side frame (ZLM), or mounting above the belt (WLR)
    • Three types of logic: single feed, single feed with sleep function, block (slug) feed
    • Up to 50 ZoneControl solutions can be connected in series.
    • Fully animated simulation to ease selection and implementation
    • Standard cut lengths of 1 m (3 ft) or 2 m (6 ft)
