To ensure consistent quality performance for all Hytrol sortation solutions, McKessock Conveyor Solutions, operating under the Norpak Handling banner, offers the ProLogix Sortation Control package. This user-friendly solution has been designed, tested and proven to control Hytrol sortation equipment in a wide variety of sortation applications — from manufacturing to distribution.
The ProLogix Sortation Control package sorts product to the correct sortation lane, and ensures consistent monitoring and optimal performance of the equipment. It is compatible with Hytrol's ProSort 100, ProSort 200, ProSort 400, ProSort SC, ViperSort and other models of sortation equipment, and provides standalone complete control for an individual sorter. In addition, it offers flexible integration into any system.
ProLogix accepts information from other devices, such as PLCs, barcode scanners or computers. Then, it tracks product until diverted and, if needed, will send confirmation of the divert back to the system. It controls the infeed area, all devices on the sorter, divert verification, and lane full detection on single or double-sided sorters.
The ProLogix has many best-in-class features, including:
- Easy setup and calibration of sorter;
- Confirms proper gaps between products;
- Interfaces with scanner or host computer;
- Dependable tracking and delivery of product;
- Divert confirmation and host notification;
- Full lane and lane jam detection;
- Interactive screens to support maintenance personnel;
- Built-in diagnostics to minimize downtime; and
- Remote assistance via modem.
In addition, it provides a user-friendly touchscreen for easy and quick sorter setup. In fact, it can be up and running in a small amount of time by simply answering a few questions and entering in some measurements. System operational screens will show how well the system is performing on a daily basis. All inputs and outputs can be monitored for correct operation, and maintenance screens help to test operation of output devices.
