CATALOG | 08312018 DCEZ-83 Drag Chain Conveyor The Model DCEZ-83 is a three strand drag chain conveyor designed to handle pallets. With EZLogic® Zone Controller, pallets are accumulated with zero pressure reducing the possibility of collision that may result in product damage. • 3 Strand Design • EZLogic® Accumulation System (Diffuse) • 10Widths • Modular Assembly • Adjustable DC3S and DCDS-Type Floor Supports Available HOW IT WORKS The conveyor is made up of drive, intermediate and tail sections on which three strands of #80 single-pitch chain travel. Each strand is a continuous loop and driven by a common drive shaft. Hytrol’s EZLogic® Zone Controller sense product presence and control the accumulation and release of product from the zones. To accumulate products accumulation lift pads are activated which lift the product off of chain strands.

EZLOGIC ® ACCUMULATION SYSTEM Hytrol’s EZLogic ® , or “Electronic Zero-pressure Logic” Accumulation System, combines the sensing accuracy of photo-electronics with discrete electronic logic control without the use of a PLC or pneumatic logic components. The EZLogic ® Accumulation System provides many features including: Zone Stop - Function is built in. Any zone may be transformed into a workstation by connecting a dry contact switching device to the auxiliary port of the EZLogic® Zone Controller. This feature is always used at the discharge end of the conveyor line, and may be used at any other location where a zone stop is required. Dynamic Zone Allocation – Automatically adjusts the conveyor’s zone length to accommodate the length of the product being conveyed. Improves conveyor efficiency and system flexibility. Unloading Zone Feature - Zone On Delay – Timer delays the zone immediately upstream from a removed load, preventing it from driving for a set time. This feature is ideal where loads are routinely removed from the conveyor with a lift truck. Loading Zone Feature – Zone detects load being placed onto the conveyor with a fork truck and stops the zone from driving and automatically prevents any loads in zones upstream from entering loading area.
