ArmorStart LT distributed motor controllers are ideal for coordinating conveyor motor systems used in material handling and packaging applications and other types of warehouse distribution systems. The new family of distributed motor controllers provides the advantages of on machine architecture - a pre-engineered system that helps simplify wiring, speeds up commissioning time and reduces the need for extra cabinet space. ArmorStart LT with EtherNet/IP connectivity improves the exchange of critical information about machine performance and component health, while allowing operators to access parameters, status and diagnostics, regardless of location. ArmorStart LT is ideal in size and weight for most general material handling applications, making it easier to integrate on or near the conveyor or machine. Installation also is simplified by the distributed motor controllers' dual-port EtherNet/IP switch technology, which supports device-level ring (DLR) network topology.
