Feeder Control No Longer A Black Art
Electromagnetic Vibratory Feeders all suffer from the inherent problem of repetition of build since they all are a combination of a machined base and a fabricated tray or bowl. The latter being the problem since no two will ever be exactly the same.
The result of this condition lies in tuning the Electromagnetic Feeder to achieve the best possible conveying rate. Traditionally springs would be altered or weights added to the system to compensate. This is a time consuming, inaccurate and frustrating function that has been endured.
Searching for the correct resonance frequency has been regarded as a black art; this is no longer the case, with the introduction of Enmin’s Digital Frequency Controllers.
The addition of these devices to the already impressive range of Feeder Controllers allows anyone to efficiently tune their Vibratory Feeder to gain the best possible performance. The FQIN model will service Vibratory Feeders from 4 to 15 amp power. Operating from a standard single phase power supply, the simple pushbutton operation quickly searches for the resonance frequency and combined with amplitude adjustment, the Vibratory Feeder is able to be tuned to its maximum potential.
The problem of tuning any Electromagnetic Vibratory Feeder is more apparent when the tray or bowl fabrication is of a more complicated design. For standard tray or bowl designs the R series Feeder Controllers are acceptable. When multiple drives are employed either side by side or in line the tuning function becomes much more difficult, the FQIN easily overcomes this problem.
Many other interesting features are available as standard with the Enmin FQIN, such as password protection from unauthorized personnel, connections for operational feed back load sensors, delay start and stop functions. The digital read out display program provides a host of messages for the ease of operation, fault finding and operating conditions.
The FQIN is built to IP 55 standard and complies with European CE standards for electromagnetic compatibility.
