ConveyBlox is nearly identical to its sister product ConveyLinx, with one very important difference. This significant difference makes it a whole new product line. Instead of driving commutating low voltage motors, ConveyBlox is equipped with two discrete outputs for direct connection to air solenoids, motor starters, or VFD’s and uses the same Zero Pressure Accumulation logic with discrete outputs controlling air or AC motors.
ConveyLinx IO offers a compact low profile design with 8 fully configurable inputs and outputs. The output is rated at 400mA which should be sufficient for most motorized drive roller I/O devices and offers a separate power supply for outputs for Emergency stop requirements. As with all of our latest Ai controllers this module has an IP54 rating, CE, and ETL certified to UL standards.
MotionLinx IO is PulseRollers's field I/O device for EtherCAT high-speed bus systems. It's the perfect complement to the MotionLinx Ai product with 8 fully configurable I/O points. Configuration is accomplished via Service Data Objects (SDO) and no proprietary software is required. This product will seamlessly integrate into any EtherCAT installation offering great benefits and saving you on your bottom line.
