The basic components are a pump control, on-board controls for all receivers in the system, a CAN-bus cable, T connectors for each receiver wiring junction along the cable and a hand-held pendant.
The FlexBus network simplifies the installation, operation and expansion of a vacuum-loading system, compared with complex, wiring-intensive conventional systems, said Chuck Morgan, resin-handling business director.
Because the network instantly recognizes and communicates with each added receiver, and because connections typically are plug-and-play, a processor can make an initial investment with the assurance that, down the road, the system can be easily modified or enlarged, Morgan said.
