Rockwell’s small-frame iTRAK 5730 improves throughput in multi- product applications.
Rockwell Automation unveiled its iTRAK 5730, a small-frame addition to the company’s iTRAK intelligent conveyor track line. Using magnetic propulsion, individually controlled carts can quickly start and stop with high precision. The 5730 version of the system system has the smallest footprint with a 50mm minimum pitch between carts. The iTRAK 5730 also offers integrated safety, featuring safe torque off, Safe Stop 1, a SIL 3, PLe safety rating and the ability to create safety zones. The system also offers simulation capabilities with which users can design various configurations digitally and calculate their throughput.
