LOGO!MAT eCart - Series: Track Shuttle

eCart Shuttle

The LOGO!MAT eCart Track Shuttle is used to redirect the eCart perpendicular to its normal traveling direction. That can eliminate two Track Rotates for offline spurs. Because of using a DC brushless motor with a motor controller, the stop locations can be adjusted and changed as needed. Multiple stop locations can be easily realized by just changing the program of the Shuttle. Acceleration, deceleration, torque and stop locations are also just a matter of program parameters. To make it a safe operation, hard stops are set at every side of the travel ends. Roller level switches constatnly and automatically measure references travel to ensure acuracy while stopping. An additional sensor per stop location makes sure that the location of the shuttle is feasible before releasing the eCart to enter or exit the Track Shuttle.

The torque limit is set high for acceleration but once moving it drops down, so that even 1.350 kg on a CART can be stopped easily by an operator. Additional leg-set supports under the Shuttle are installed in the heavy duty version for loads of up to 1.350 kg (3.000 lbs.).
