Conveyors require reliable control in order to ensure the right quantity of material to and from your process. CG Drives & Automation solutions optimize the feeding rate by controlling motor speed, and uses direct torque control to handle high starting torque requirements.
Efficient conveyor systems are critical to many industrial processes. Optimized control is required in order to ensure the right rate and quantity when feeding material to and from the process. Costly interruptions and downtime need to be prevented. This is ensured with a solution from us.
The right speed at all times
Our AC drives ensure the right feeding rate at all times by adapting motor speed. They ensure optimized operation regardless of the quantity or type of material, minimizing energy consumption and wear. The AC drive can also be set to reverse the conveyor in the case of an overload or jamming.
Efficiency with direct torque control
Direct torque control handles abrupt load changes and overcomes initial peak loads, reducing mechanical stress and preventing interruptions and false trips. A heavily loaded conveyor is efficiently started by utilizing the full motor capacity also from standstill. Minimized start currents are still ensured, meaning less mechanical stress and lower installation and energy costs.
Prevents damage and downtime
A built-in load monitor protects your process from damage and inefficiency. Any deviation from your selected load levels will result in a warning or a quick yet controlled stop, for example, if a belt is broken or overloaded, or a screw conveyor is jammed. Downtime is minimized and no energy is wasted.
