The new CCN-8 SoftDrive Conveyor Control Node is a solid-state, soft start motor control device which allows for check-in conveyors to be completely assembled, wired and tested in the factory prior to shipping to site.
The CCN-8 SoftDrive enables smooth and quiet operation of check-in conveyor motors up to 0.55 kW.
All check-in conveyors can be fitted with identical CCN-8 SoftDrives, simplifying system design and purchasing.
At the customer site, it’s just plug and play, saving expensive controls engineer commissioning time, and the new design provides an elegant field solution for the control of airport check-in conveyors, says Alf Lomberg, Sales Director.
“It’s an economical means of control, especially when the savings in site installation are included,” he says.
The AS-i connection to the CCN-8 SoftDrive is via the industry-standard M12 connector.
The CCN-8 SoftDrive can be used with single direction or reversing conveyors. The unit protects the motor from thermal overload. Only an upstream circuit breaker is required for branch short-circuit protection.
3-phase line monitoring of phase sequence and symmetry is also incorporated Comprehensive status and fault histories are also accessible via USB.
The CCN-8 SoftDrive is housed in a rugged slim-line enclosure made from low-smoke, flame-retardant recyclable plastic which allows it to be fitted within the body or trim of a standard check-in conveyor.
