ERT 250 Edge Roller Conveyor

Unique, Beltless, Zone Control for Pallet and Tray Handling

Dorener ERT 250

Dorner's new precision edge roller pallet and tray handling conveyors provide efficient, non-contact zoning for medium & heavy load assembly automation applications. They feature a clean, open roller design and are ISO Class 4 approved for cleanrooms.

The ERT 250 is built for cleanroom applications such as medical product and device manufacturing, assembly, and packaging, as well as medium-large  heavy load assembly automation applications.

What Makes the ERT so different?

The simple, yet robust, design provides long-term durability and ease of single point roller maintenance. The force to move product has almost no friction which means less debris, dust, and chances for contamination. 

Additionally, slip roller technology reduces the force by almost 75%, and the force to accumulate product with driven roller is less than that of belted conveyors. The rollers are driven by a patent-pending, energy efficient linear gearbox that gives customers added flexibility with motor positioning and zoning.

  • Widths 120 mm to 960 mm wide
  • 38 mm diameter rollers on 50 mm centers
  • Loads up to 250 pounds per pallet or tray
  • Loads up to 15 pounds per roller
  • 150 mm minimum long tray
  • Speeds up to 30 m (100 feet) per minute
  • Aluminum frame with two T-slots
  • Energy efficient brushless DC gearmotors and controllers; motor controllers use Ethernet IP for easy communication
  • Reversible

FR-E800 Series Inverters

Extended Life Span with Enhanced Life Diagnosis Function

FR-E800 invertersThe FR-E800 Series variable frequency drive is built upon Mitsubishi Electric’s proven variable speed control technology throughout years of reliable operation across various constant and variable torque applications. Designed to save energy and minimize cost, the FR-E800 brings together advances in quality, performance, and predictive maintenance capabilities in one multi-purpose inverter.

Key Benefits

  • Compact Design - Save space with a compact footprint to control 3-phase motors up to 10HP (with expansion in the future) at 200V, 400V and 600V.
  • Dual Overload Rating - Achieve top performance in smaller frame sizes with light duty (LD) and normal duty (ND) overload current ratings.
  • Auto-tune to IM & PM Motors - Setup and commission quickly and easily without time-consuming tuning or the need for on-site support.
  • RS-485 and “Dual-Port” Ethernet Protocol Models - Switch between Ethernet protocols simply by changing internal parameters. The FR-E800 series inverters support a variety of open networks without the need for additional option cards.
  • MELSEC 2K Step PLC - Reduce internal components and save panel space, eliminating wiring time, and reducing system setup times. Operation of the system can be customized by the FR-E800’s built-in PLC feature
  • Inverter-to-Inverter Linking - Create small-scale systems by connecting multiple VFDs via Ethernet protocols. The communication between multiple inverters is carried out through the inputs/outputs and built-in PLC.
  • Extended Environmental Rating - FR-E800 operates in ambient temperatures from -20°C to 60°C (-5 to 140°F) and the control card is conformal coated to withstand harsh environments.
  • Corrosion Alert System - FR-E800 is the world’s first system to identify signs of damage caused by hydrogen sulfide or other corrosive gases. The operator receives a notification when the production environment needs to be improved or risk the possibility of unplanned downtime.
  • Life Diagnostics Function - Analyze and determine remaining lifetime of critical components, such as capacitors, contact relays, cooling fan, and inrush current limit resistor.

Inductive Couplers for Discrete Sensors

Quickly connect up to eight sensors without physical contact

Inductive CouplersWhen quick or frequent wiring changes need to be made, inductive couplers can provide a fast and error-free way to connect multiple discrete PNP sensors. Balluff offers two versions to meet your specific application needs. The version in an M18 cylindrical housing can connect to up to four sensors, while the version in a Q40 cuboid housing can connect up to eight sensors. These IP67-rated couplers transmit power and signals across a small air gap.

An inductive coil in the base and remote units sends and receives the magnetic signals. A single base unit can be used with multiple remote units, so you can create several wiring setups on the remote-unit side and interchange them as needed. Balluff’s passive junction boxes make this wiring a simple task. To connect to the base unit, simply place the base in front of the remote. Perfect alignment isn’t necessary, and their orientation can be changed. They begin communicating once they are in close proximity, at which point LEDs on the base and remote will switch on to indicate that a connection is active. Magnetic mounts for the Q40 models protect the couplers and keep them aligned and at the optimal distance.

This is a smart retrofit to replace electromechanical or hardwired connections on existing machines. A slip ring or rotary connector will eventually wear out, but an inductive coupler avoids mechanical failure, since the base and remote don’t come in contact. Changing a die or mold often requires disconnecting and reconnecting cables, where it’s easy to bend a pin in the connector or put other stresses on the connector, eventually causing it to fail. With inductive couplers, you mount the remote coupler at the same position on each die or mold, and then swap as needed. Give your machines a productivity boost by changing out wired connectors for non-contact ones.
