US4495584: Intermittent driving system for synchronizing control of conveyor and dispensing systems
6 Claims, No Drawings
A system for controlling and synchronizing the operation of a conveyor system and an article supply system. An encoder monitors the operation of a standard reference or dispensing device along with a rate detecting device. This information is fed into a computer employing a microprocessor. The microprocessor provides an output to a drive system for a conveyor or the like to be synchronized with a supplying or dispensing system.
- 1. A drive control synchronizing system for synchronizing the control of conveyor systems and dispensing systems;standard position reference means providing a standard position reference;encoding means detecting and encoding an output from said standard reference means;rate detecting means receiving an output from said encoding means for detecting the rate of operation of said standard reference means;digital processing means receiving inputs from said encoding means and said rate detection means;at least one mechanical load means;motor means for driving said mechanical load means;said digital processing means generating rate pulse signals to directly control operation of said motor means whereby operation of said mechanical load means is synchronized with operation of said standard reference means.
