Title: MOTOR-DRIVEN CONVEYOR ROLLER WITH BUS CONTROL
Abstract:
The invention relates to a motor-driven conveyor roller, comprising a conveyor roller tube mounted for rotation about a shaft element, a drive unit which is disposed inside the conveyor roller tube, designed for torque generation and rotation between the shaft element and the conveyor roller tube, and mechanically coupled to the shaft element and the conveyor roller tube, an electric power supply extending from outside the conveyor roller tube to the drive unit, and a data line extending from outside the conveyor roller tube to the drive unit. The motor-driven conveyor roller is characterized in that the data line is a bus line and, via a bus interface mounted in the conveyor roller tube, is coupled to the drive unit for signal communication.
