ASSTech offers a new range of Wenglor sensors for roller conveyor systems that offer everything required for modern warehousing and transport technology.
Mountable underneath the transport level of raceway conveyors, these intelligent, multitalented sensors not only set new standards in environmental protection, but the broad range of variants, near field communication (NFC) and smart logistics functions result in an ideal product for logistics 4.0.
Available as a reflex sensor with background suppression, retro-reflex sensor or as a logic unit, the new sensors can be supplied with or without accumulation logic with valve (for pneumatics), or without valve (for motorized rollers).
Equipped with NFC interface, the sensors can be conveniently configured van an Android app with PC. Switiching distances and operating modes can even be selected in the de-energised state. The free Wenglor Sensor Configuration app is available from the Google Play Store.
In addition, the sensors are easy to mount in just a few simple steps using the intuitive fast clip system and quick wiring.
With the intelligent accumulation logic functions and energy saving modes, the current performance potential of logistic systems can be appreciably improved – power consumption at the solenoid valves is reduced by 75% with the help of the integrated EcoMode and additional electrical energy is saved in the switched state as well.
With functions such as automatic roller shutdown, dynamic accumulation zones, intelligent jam monitoring, individual and block forwarding as well as time functions, a great variety of logistics processes can easily be implemented and optimized.
The benefits are reduced energy consumption, lower noise levels, a decrease in errors, increased throughput rates and up to 60% more capacity for the conveyor system.
