Once your linear conveyor has been Auto-Configured and running in ZPA mode; the ConveyLinx Modules will attempt to convey all items from upstream to downstream in the direction of flow. The next logical step that you will want to do is Interlock with the most upstream and/or downstream zones and perhaps interrupt flow in a zone somewhere in the middle.

Control Ports Provide Interlock Function

By default after configuration, each control port provides:

  • An input for an Interlock Signal (Pin 4)
  • An input for Local Zone Accumulate (Pin 3)
  • An output that indicates if zone is occupied (Pins 1/6 Circuit)
