Title (EN) CONVEYOR MODULE ASSEMBLY, SYSTEM AND CONTROL
(FR) ENSEMBLE, SYSTÈME ET COMMANDE DE MODULES DE TRANSPORTEUR
Abstract:
(EN) A conveyor module (10) comprises an elongate frame (12) to which a looped conveyor track (14) is mounted. The frame (12) comprises first and second end housings (16) which include end pulleys (21) for the conveyor track (14). The frame (12) also comprises a drive housing (18) located at a mid-portion thereof which houses the drive motor (20) for the conveyor track (14). The conveyor module (10) is a discrete independently driven unit with an upper portion (running surface) (17) of the conveyor track (14) in a planar orientation for conveying items thereon in use. The conveyor module (10) is narrow, being about 300 mm wide in the embodiment. The frame (12), the end housings (16) and the drive housing (18), have a profile to maintain the narrow dimensions of the conveyor (12). The conveyor module (10) further comprises additional smart features. This includes a product scanner disposed in each end housing (16). Each conveyor module (10) further comprises communication means, including local communication (LC) means and remote communication (RC) means. Each conveyor module (10) further comprises a number of sensors such as a temperature sensor, humidity sensor, and a load sensor. A warehouse floor arrangement (50) uses a plurality of side by side conveyor modules (10). The conveyor modules (10) are identical and grouped into banks (52). In each bank (52), the conveyor modules (10) are disposed parallel, side by side, and close to each other.
(FR) L'invention concerne un module de transporteur (10) qui comprend un bâti allongé (12) sur lequel un chemin de roulement en boucle (14) est monté. Le bâti (12) comprend également un boîtier d'entraînement (18) se situant au niveau d'une partie centrale du bâti et qui contient le moteur d'entraînement (20) destiné au chemin de roulement (14). Le module de transporteur (10) est une unité séparée, entraînée de façon indépendante avec une partie supérieure (surface de roulement) (17) du chemin de roulement (14) dans une orientation plane pour transporter des articles sur celle-ci, à l'utilisation. Le module de transporteur (10) est étroit, d'environ 300 mm de largeur dans le mode de réalisation. Le bâti (12), les boîtiers d'extrémité (16) et le boîtier d'entraînement (18) ont un profil conçu pour maintenir les dimensions étroites du transporteur (12). Le module de transporteur (10) comprend en outre des éléments intelligents supplémentaires, y compris un dispositif de balayage de produit, placé dans chaque boîtier d'extrémité (16). Chaque module de transporteur (10) comprend en outre des moyens de communication, y compris des moyens de communication locale (LC) et des moyens de communication à distance (RC). Chaque module de transporteur (10) comprend en outre un certain nombre de capteurs tels qu'un capteur de température, un capteur d'humidité et un capteur de charge. Un agencement de sol d'entrepôt (50) utilise une pluralité de modules de transporteur côte à côte (10). Les modules de transporteur (10) sont identiques et groupés en séries (52). Dans chaque série (52), les modules de transporteur (10) sont placés parallèlement, côte à côte et proches les uns des autres.
