Linear Conveyor Definition

Auto-Configuration is only applicable to a Linear Conveyor arrangement. A Linear Conveyor arrangement is defined as a single uninterrupted path of conveyor with no merge or diverts mechanisms. A Linear Conveyor can include curved sections, but the flow of cartons on the conveyor is continuous from in-feed zone to discharge zone. A networked ConveyLinx solution can control more complex conveyor paths that include diverting and merging equipment by utilizing external PLC/PC control and/or on-board ConveyLogix programming.
