A dedicated soft-start conveyor controller providing a truly ‘plug & play’ solution

The Atrax 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 – resulting in a truly ‘plug & play’ solution.

With soft start/stop capability, the CCN-8 SoftDrive enables smooth and quiet operation of check-in conveyor motors up to 0.75 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. The CCN-8 SoftDrive is an economical means of control that also provides savings in site installation.
