Ground conveyors

More and more often, ground conveyors are no longer just transport vehicles, but also carriers and imparters of information within in-house material flow. In addition, the material flow itself is becoming more versatile, and the conveyor systems have a modular design. In order to save energy they are switched on and off as required.

Ground conveyors

Specification

A ground conveyor places a pallet onto a conveyor belt. The driver actuates a radio-controlled push button to switch on the belt – which until then has been standing still. This task requires a self-sufficient and robust wireless command device which is fixed to the forklift and transmits its signal to a receiver unit, triggering the belt drive mechanism.

Realisation

An RF BF command device is mounted on the instrument panel. This device is wireless and self-sufficient, equipped with an electrodynamic energy generator and protected inside a robust housing.

Customer benefit

Because the wireless remote control is fixed in place, it can neither get lost nor be dropped and damaged. A universal receiver enables all manner of functions on the conveyor belt, as well as other machines, to be controlled.
