In conveyor applications, transferring a carton at a right angle from one conveyor to another often requires special lifting and lowering mechanisms. In certain applications, one conveyor can simply drive its carton off of its downstream zone directly onto the upstream zone of another conveyor that is perpendicularly oriented. This type configuration is commonly defined as a T-Zone arrangement. ConveyLinx contains the logic to control a T-Zone arrangement without requiring any external control interface or programming.
