Unidrive® Motors And ZPA Controllers For Large-Scale Conveyor Systems At Automate 2023 – Booth 648

March 23, 2023

Milwaukee Electronics and subsidiary Automation Controls Group is excited to introduce its line of UniDrive® ZoneLogix® and ZoneLogix ®PRO zero pressure accumulation (ZPA)/ZLP) controllers, which provide end-users, systems integrators, and conveyor OEMs with the advantages of ZPA/ZLP with or without PLC interface.

Designed to operate seamlessly with the UniDrive® flagship line of Brushless DC conveyor motors, the ZoneLogix® controller line provides a new level of product and zoned-system control, without the need to directly wire PLCs to each zone.

The UniDrive® line of motors has been in use in the material handling industry for over a decade. Select conveyor OEMs have selected UniDrive® motors because they offer the best in reliability and design freedom, providing unprecedented flexibility in system application and manufacturing lead time. The motor has just one moving part, operates almost silently and achieves a superb torque-to-speed performance curve. With no maintenance required, low energy usage and more than 250,000 hours of drive bearing life expectancy, it is the motor of choice for visionary conveyor owners that value long-term reliability.

“For integrators building large-scale conveyor systems, UniDrive® motors and ZoneLogixTM controls offer plug-and-play simplicity.” said Mike Allen, Director of Sales-Material Handling. “With simplified in-rail mounting and a motor containing just one moving part for all conveyor widths, UniDrive® is designed to take up less space, is easy to install and requires no motor upkeep. Use it with any conveyor system and benefit from zero maintenance, extreme long life and highest design flexibility in its category.”

UniDrive® motors provide more than ten times the design life of ordinary motor driven rollers (MDRs), making them ideal for quality-conscious and cost-conscious conveyor designers and OEM manufacturers. The patented Brushless DC motors, motor drives, logic controls, P3 PowerCubesTM and/or application-specific solutions are expertly integrated to address customer challenges in unit handling. When the motors are paired with the industry-leading ZoneLogixTM ZPA/ZLP controllers, the combination provides superior performance and a very low total cost of ownership (TCO).
