Press Release Summary:
HTBL (High Torque Brushless) ZPA (Zero Pressure Accumulation) DriveControl module suits HTBL RollerDrive conveying in any postal, distribution center, or manufacturing application. Module installs without external control PLC, but also allows use of external PLC for integration into existing control scheme. It interfaces with PNP and NPN style photo eyes, and offers diagnostic capability with indicators that identify system-specific faults without PLC monitoring.

Interroll Offers ZPA DriveControl Modules for High Torque Brushless RollerDrives
Zero Pressure Accumulation (ZPA) DriveControl ensures safety, reduces costs for consecutive zone applications...
Wilmington, N.C. (March 27, 2006) - Assuring added control for consecutive single-zone accumulation applications, Interroll's new HTBL (High Torque Brushless) ZPA (Zero Pressure Accumulation) DriveControl module provides self contained zero pressure accumulation control in a plug-and play configuration for ease in installation and operation. The HTBL ZPA DriveControl module is ideally suited for HTBL RollerDrive conveying in any postal, distribution center or manufacturing application.
"HTBL ZPA DriveControl for our HTBL RollerDrives allows our customers to implement intelligent conveying systems that further enhance the advantages of the HTBL versus traditional tangential belt, line shaft, chain and sprocket drive systems," said Ken Bobick, Global Product Manager for Interroll RollerDrives. "In addition to more obvious safety considerations with automatic delay if the next zone is occupied, the HTBL provides significant energy savings capabilities - and, therefore, cost savings capabilities - over line shaft and tangential belt applications."
With the conveyor running only when needed, it becomes even more cost effective with the HTBL ZPA DriveControl on a per zone basis versus both existing mechanical methods and other competitive motorized driven roller solutions. The HTBL ZPA DriveControl module is easy to install with no external control of programmable logic control (PLC) required. However, it does allow the use of an external controller or PLC to enable integration into any existing control scheme. It interfaces with both PNP and NPN style photo eyes.
Backward compatible with the popular Interroll Intelliveyor accumulation control system, the HTBL ZPA DriveControl interfaces readily with Interroll's new 'Z' card to complete all variations of accumulation applications. It also provides enhanced diagnostic capability with indicators that allow identification of system-specific faults without PLC monitoring.
Interroll's HTBL RollerDrive addresses customers' needs for more power and cost-efficiency. Designed as an economical and safe alternative to traditional tangential belt, line shaft, chain and sprocket drive systems, the 24 VDC motorized driven roller meets the demand for moving heavier loads with improved control capabilities. The RollerDrive HTBL provides up to a 70 percent increase in torque at costs comparable to less capable motorized driven rollers.
