New modular powered roller conveyors offer an energy saving way for transferring product: Using one motorized roller per module, the motorized rollers are energized and put into motion only when required, saving energy when not being activated. The roller conveyors move product along energized conveyor modules. As product is conveyed from one module to the next, the power dissipates and the next module is energized, causing the product to continue moving in the desired direction without energy waste. To maximize flexibility in conveyor length, modules are available in short sections consisting of 5, 7, 9 and 11 roller sections. Modules of various lengths can be interchanged to create the ideal conveyor length for each application.
