The PLEZD may be applied in a wide variety of applications
where large unitized or palletized loads need to be conveyed
and accumulated with no back pressure. The plastic modular
belting makes it ideal for conveying many pallets or loads
that may not be conveyable on conventional roller conveyors.
Flexible plastic pallets, footed pallets or bagged items are
no problem for the PLEZD. Often wooden pallets contain boards
that are just too weak to support the product load traveling
over rollers. The modular belt offers the support necessary
to convey those problematic pallets.
The PLEZD fitted with the soft start/soft stop option makes
it great for handling tall palletized loads moving from a
palletizer to a stretch wrapper where sudden starting and
stopping may risk toppling to shingling of the product.
onboard zone-on-delay timer makes unloading accumulated pallets
a breeze on the PLEZD. When a pallet is removed from an accumulated
line, the pallet upstream from the unloaded zone will delay
advancing forward. This allows the forklift time to clear
the conveyor path, preventing jams during unloading.
An infeed loading zone delay kit is available for applications
where product needs to be loaded on the infeed zone with a
forklift. This kit delays the loaded pallet from advancing
forward thus giving the forklift time to clear the conveyor
after positioning the product on the infeed zone.
The combination of EZLogic® and EZDrive™ technology
makes the PLEZD ideal for pallet storage and retrieval systems.
When pallets are accumulated or not flowing on the conveyor
the zones go into sleep mode. While in sleep mode, the zone
stops running in order to save energy and save wear on mechanical
The flexibility combined with the robustness of Hytrol's Model
PLEZD makes it the ideal solution for many large item and
The PLEZD is composed of accumulation zones ranging from 30
inches to 120 inches in length. Each zone contains an Electronic
Zone Drive (EZDrive™) that is controlled directly by
the EZLogic® Accumulation System. The intelligence of
the EZLogic® accumulation system controls the zone drives
in such a way as to only run the zone when needed. The zone
drive is turned off when there are no pallets present or when
they are accumulated. When the drive is off, there is no wear
on mechanical components, no noise created by the zone, and
no electrical power being consumed by the zone drive.
Installation and setup is made easy with the PLEZD. Electrical
power is supplied to the main disconnect panel which distributes
both the EZDrive™ zone power and the EZLogic® control
power through sealed industrial plug-in connectors. Both high
and low voltage power simply plug in a daisy chain fashion
from zone to zone.
