Eco Electric Series – Eco Electric Traverser
Eco-electric (low thrust) Traverser [ETV]
This product is a traverser developed based on customer feedback in order to solve various problems of AGVs (Automated Guided Vehicles).
Since the AGV has a built-in battery, it was not suitable for production lines with short downtime operation cycles. In addition, since the stop accuracy is not high, there are problems such as a separate positioning mechanism is required when using it for the conveyor connection part, and it takes time to recover if it stops due to a battery failure. I had to have it.
Since this traverser is driven by 24V DC, it does not require a large power supply unit and can be safely stopped with low thrust (about 75N or less). In addition, accurate positioning with the conveyor connection is possible. Furthermore, one of the attractions is that the simple structure makes maintenance easy.
Achieves low thrust due to mechanical structure.
Even if you hit it unintentionally, it will stop safely, so you can work “collaborate” with people.
No need for safety fences or sensors to detect people, allowing work without stopping the machine
The low voltage of 24V DC saves energy and reduces the risk of electric shock.
Energy saving / low cost
By saving wiring using I / O slaves, both construction time and restoration time can be significantly reduced, and line construction and layout changes can be realized in a short delivery time.
Since it is DC24V, no power cable is required and wiring is simple.
Initial cost can be reduced because expensive power panel is not required.
Since it is DC24V, it consumes less power than AC200V and can reduce running costs.
