The ASTRRA oneTouch changeover system represents a significant improvement over traditional methods of machine changeovers and conveyor rail adjustment mechanisms. Designed for ease of installation, simple retrofit and low wiring overhead, ASTRRA provides the end-user with unprecedented flexibility, speed, repeatability and accuracy in all changeover adjustments.

Android and windows based HMIs allows for all user operations, receipt additions and communications with Allen-Bradley and Siemens PLCs.

 

Based on industry standard wireless communications protocols, ASTRRA is a distributed control system which eliminates cumbersome and expensive point-to-point control wiring to a central PLC. Instead, only one inexpensive 24VDC bus is required along the length of the conveyor.

Once installed and aligned, setting up the conveyor for a new package requires nothing more than entering the package width or diameter in the system and rails will move to the new position. Dimensions may be entered in increments of 0.1mm (0.004").
