Zero-pressure accumulation conveying (ZPA) of many zones. Control of the Interroll Transfer and the Interroll High Performance Divert. Control of RollerDrive EC310 in applications without zero-pressure accumulation conveying.
The MultiControl is a four-zone control. This means that up to four RollerDrive EC310 and four zone sensors can be connected. The use of Y-lines enables connecting four additional inputs or outputs. The connections can be configured individually.
If MultiControl is used as a network card, the fieldbuses PROFINET, EtherNet/IP or EtherCat can be used by simply toggling them.
With help of the MultiControl, sensors and RollerDrive are directly integrated in to the field bus level. No additional sensor/actuator level is necessary. A standard ribbon cable is used for power connection. The ribbon cable can be cut to the correct length and can be connected very quickly using the penetration technology of MultiControl.
Switching off connected RollerDrive without interrupting the communication is possible if the MultiControl features a second ribbon cable for voltage supply.
The addressing and naming is done over PLC software, a web user interface, or with the Interroll Teach-In method. With the Teach-In method, automatic addressing and configuration of all MultiControl is possible. In addition, the sequence of all MultiControls in the conveyor line can be determined. This saves time during the commissioning on site.
MultiControl can also be used as individual control for special applications. Interroll offers the programming of special software solutions if it cannot be done using a PLC.
