Interroll's High Performance Brushless Rollerdrive Increases Efficiency and Lowers Noise

WILMINGTON, N.C., (January 23, 2007) - Providing a cost saving solution by
reducing energy consumption in the product life cycle, Interroll has developed a high
performance brushless RollerDrive that minimizes the after run of products enabling the
user to stop packages precisely. Designated the EC100, the RollerDrive is equipped
with a zero motion hold (ZMH) electro magnetic rotor brake and a re-engineered gear
box for higher efficiency and lower noise. The EC100 RollerDrive is ideal for conveying
in postal, distribution center or light pallet handling applications.

"The EC100 is a versatile motorized driven roller that can be manufactured to work with
O-rings, multi-rib belts, timing belts or chains," said Georg Malina, Global Product
Manager for Interroll RollerDrive and DriveControl. "The flexible EC100 provides our
customers with a technologically advanced and economical superior alternative to
traditional belt, line shaft, chain and sprocket drive systems."

The EC100 RollerDrive is applied with the HC-EC100 zero pressure accumulation
(ZPA) control card for a fast and convenient set up for self control stand alone conveyor systems.

The EC100 RollerDrive enables a conveying speed up to 260 fpm and torque
capabilities up to 26 in-lbf continuous torque. Noise emission levels of less than 55 dBA can be achieved during operation. Interroll's EC100 RollerDrive is available in
galvanized or stainless steel.
