Zone Powered Conveyor
"ZPC" mean "Zone Powered Conveyor". It is a modern roller and belt-conveyor system, which offers fast transporting throughout the whole internal logistics, using before crossings and stops the ability of zero pressure accumulation (ZPA). It is developed for smooth and fast transporting but not only for "accumulation" as APC or ZPA or other names and also not on the drive or control system. Therefore we don't name it "24 V technology". The avancon ZPC-conveyor system is controlled through the field bus AS-interface, which runs on nominal 28 V and the new version of DC-motors, which works with 48 V by 40 Watt.
avancon ZPC powers each zone separately in the moment when something has to be transported on this zone. If the zone in front is occupied, it stops; if the zone in front is empty, it transports with 0.3 m/sec. to the zone in front; if 5 zones in front are empty, it transports continuously with 5 times the speed to and over the zones in front...and so on. In addition it always starts and stops smoothly.
This means that in cases where in front is already a good standing it will accumulate with zero pressure and not touch the goods in front.
The main advantages of the avancon ZPC-System are
ENERGY SAVINGS - up to 84 % , (compared to long beld-driven roller conveyors wit 0.5 t 1 KW Motors)
- besides an outstanding, avant-garde DESIGN!
