Controls integration


Besides the conveyor hardware, LOGOMAT also offers turn-key solutions for all Conveyor Series available. A turn-key solution includes full controls integration with the hardware, software, piping, and wiring. The performance of an assembly line is directly related to the controls concept and software optimization. Our controls have been optimized to be more efficient and failure resistant. When we first developed a controls concept, no hardware existed which would allow us to have cost effective localized controls at the components. We developed our own ITB controls hardware which we could place throughout a conveyor and would control a component or area and communicate with the other units. This experience helped prepare LOGOMAT for the next step.

As commercially available PLCs have upgraded, we saw the opportunity to source proven equipment with our same basic concept, so we retired the ITB units. With decentralized controls, individual components throughout a system can have preprogrammed controllers which will communicate with a main PLC. This setup reduces the workload of the main PLC while taking advantage of our experience developing and testing programs for our products. 

We have also seen the need to control complete conveyor systems for companies looking for a more simple and cheaper solution for controls. Complete systems use the same PLC, but with additional I/O extension modules throughout the line as needed. These systems will have a program customized to the solution required.

  • NO controls design costs
  • NO piping and wiring costs
  • NO software development
  • A variety of communication interfaces for external machinery
  • Unlimited possibilities for extensions or re-configurations
  • Optimized software package, including emergency recover and start up routines
  • Efficient and smart trafficking
  • Energy saving techniques including shutting off motors until pallets need to transfer

Please contact our Sales Engineering Team for more detailed information about our LOGO!MAT Controls Concept. You will be impressed with the performance and cost saving benefits as a total package for your next conveyor system.
