Prismatic Pieces Feeding Module
Mod. MCE-740/EV is used to distribute prismatic pieces. It has been designed to work with the conveyor module MCE-700/EV. Pieces are expelled by a double-acting cylinder controlled by a 5/2-way electrovalve. The presence of pieces in the column is detected by a microswitch sensor, whereas the position of the cylinder is detected by two magnetic sensors.
The module is assembled on a sectioned aluminium base, and it can be easily moved around the laboratory.
Mod. MCE-740/EV can be fully controlled using a PLC module or an Arduino microprocessor. Thanks to the PLC or Arduino programming software, a wide range of exercises regarding the automation of the module in a working cycle or in stand-alone mode can be developed.
