New inverter enhances conveyor system performance

THE QuickStick HT intelligent conveyor system from Rockwell Automation is designed to transport large loads with the intelligence of independent cart technology. The most common applications for the technology are in the automotive industry. However, it is also well-suited for heavy-load material handling, ride conveyance and hazardous material handling, including glovebox applications.

The system has a new QuickStick HT 5700 inverter, which increases performance. It can now achieve velocities of 5+ m/s. Additionally, the update allows for the use of a smaller Kinetix 5700 power supply, reducing the control cabinet size and saving space on the plant floor. The updated system also includes integrated functional safety. It has hardwired Safe Torque Off and Safe Stop 1 timed, SIL3/PLe.
