24 Volt Motorized Driven Roller (MDR) Smart Conveyor Allowing Zone-To-Zone Control
A 24 Volt Motor Driven Roller Smart Conveyor (MDR) or motorized driven roller conveyor sets the standard in material handling flexibility. Its key is the use of a motorized roller that powers each zone or segment of the conveyor. The advancements in 24V Motor Driven technology and the high tech world of control cards make MDR conveyors extremely versatile. Transportation and zero pressure accumulation are two typical applications of MDR. The 24V Motor Driven Roller Conveyor is an excellent choice when fast and easy installation, low maintenance and minimal spare parts are a primary consideration. They are ideal for manufacturing and automated food and beverage solutions.
This new state of the art technology allows for zone-to-zone control through Ethernet/IP communication. Zone and product control are now easy to monitor and control with a Smart MDR Conveyor. Smart conveyors are zero pressure accumulating conveyors featuring motor driven rollers and controllers from Itoh Denki.
Choosing a zero pressure accumulation MDR typically reflects a higher upfront cost, however, the long term savings by only having active zones as the product conveys down the lane will lower the operating costs and reduce noise. This quiet operating conveyor is great for zero pressure accumulation and "run on-demand" transportation.
