Z Card

Interroll’s new ‘Z’ card can control accumulation in four conveyor application zones, including any combination of straights, merge, divert or transfer. The card interfaces to all Interroll RollerDrive products. It offers optional control functionality via a Canbus network interface for high-end integration. A standard package includes a cable assembly kit to support the interconnect between the RollerDrive, photo eyes and the Z card for ease of installation.

‘Z’ Card Enhances Network Control for Zero Pressure Accumulation Conveying

Wilmington, N.C. (March 27, 2006) — Interroll’s new ‘Z’ card provides self-contained intelligence to control accumulation in four conveyor application zones, including any combination of straights, merge, divert or transfer. The Z card interfaces to all Interroll RollerDrive products – both brushed and brushless solutions – significantly enhancing the control capabilities of virtually any conveyor application.

“The self-contained intelligence of the Z card provides a very cost-effective solution for large accumulation applications,” said Ken Bobick, Global Product Manager for Interroll RollerDrives. “As conveying systems and material handling, in general, continue to evolve, the ability to provide network control is also becoming increasingly important for managing both efficiency and safety. The Z card demonstrates Interroll’s leadership in advancing the intelligence of material handling.”

The Z card offers optional control functionality via a CANBUS network interface for high-end integration. It is also available in an IP54 enclosure for relevant industrial applications. A standard package includes a cable assembly kit to support the interconnect between the RollerDrive, photo eyes and the Z card for ease of installation.

The Z card provides local speed control for all four zones and supports either NPN or PNP style sensors. It also interfaces to Interroll’s new RollerDrive HTBL (High Torque Brushless) ZPA (Zero Pressure Accumulation) system via a proprietary peer-to-peer network for ease in integrating multiple zone accumulation applications.
