The avancon electronic ZPC-Conveyor Control System with AS-i Field-Bus

Field-bus control elements of AS-interface for conveyors, AS-i controls for conveyor systems, AS-i master, AS-i slaves, AS-i Sensors

We control each zone of the avancon ZPC-System with the field-bus AS-interface. The DC-Power and the data-transfer is supplied by our invisible 3-in-1 Power supply.
All control elements can be pressed onto the wires at any position in each zone.


The avancon MCC = Main Control Center E100 is equipped with

a small PLC-unit, which is programmable and the AS-i Master, which

is able to control up to 62 Sensors/actuators = up to 31 ZPC-Zones.

The MCC communicates with other Masters for a full

automatically and full automatically control of any size

of  an avancon ZPC-system.

Furthermore the MCC has an RJ45 interface for

programming and  to communicate with higher

IT/BUS systems together.

Generally you can save a lot of  programming time and cost..

Nowhere there are dipswitches to operate.

You get it ready loaded with the firmware, which

can be easily programmed and modified or adapted

by avancon to your requirements, if necessary.


Each Motor has its own  E200 Motor Control box, which controls the brush-less motor and it serves as electronic activator in the AS-interface

field-bus system. It can be fixed onto the AS-i cables at any position in the near of the motor in order to save long cables and get an easy assembly for any length of goods to be transported.


Each Zone is further controlled by a photo electric sensor with an

opposite mirror. The E201 sensor controller is part of the AS-interface field-bus

as well and communicates with the Master.


You find more information about the field-bus AS-interface technology under:



and many others...


At  each end of a Conveyor section (which normally includes several zones)  is the Connector E202 fixed on the cables. This allows a fast installation at side  through real “plag-n-play”.


The photo-electric-Sensor E300 and the Mirror E301 (in the opposite frame)

are in a housing of crystal-clear Polycarbonate - just snapped into the frame.

Each is protected smoothly against dust and scratches by a window, which is part

of the housing and fits plain into the frames.


The photo-electric-Sensor has always the same cable length, because

it has its own electronic AS-i control box E201 just snapped in under

the sensor.


Therefore you don't need any extra fixations and for all avancon ZPC-electronic boxes and all cables - this means no “spaghetti syndrome” and no tools are necessary for the assembly and disassembly of any avancon control-box,

photo-electric Sensor and the DC-Motors ..

simple control system, easy installation of conveyor control system, clever idea to save installation cost for conveyor systems

The control boxes can be installed at any position,

regardless if long or short zones have to be used.

Therefore cables can be always equal short.
