Better Control of Conveyed Cartons
EZLogic is the most advanced zero-pressure accumulation system in the world.
While featuring the same EZLogic familiarity, GEN3 incorporates new technologies
for ease of installation, operation, and maintenance. This system provides the
intelligence to accurately control the various functions of zero-pressure
accumulation on a variety of conveyors. Reduced noise, higher reliability,
higher throughputs, and ease of maintenance are just some of the advantages of
the EZLogic® system.
EZLogic automatically adjusts the conveyor's zone length to accommodate the
length of the carton being conveyed. This provides better control of your boxes
and naturally increases carton throughput. accumulation density, conveyor
efficiency, and system flexibility. If desired you can size zones for the
smallest carton for maximum efficiency.
Longer cartons introduced after installation do not obsolete the system, and
the low-usage, long carton isn't a problem.

Input/Output Power System
The input/output power system gives you the ability to install all of your
"real time" inputs and outputs to the EZLogic system, such as zone stop inputs,
slug mode inputs, photo eye outputs, "jam detected" outputs, and more. This
centralizes all your control wiring to one spot and reduces installation costs.
It can also be used for peer to peer communications. And it's easy to
Genesis Configuration Manager
This tool provides and easy-to-use interface to configure the EZLogic system.
It allows you to change settings in a controller, save configurations for later
use, load & use default conveyor settings, and much more.
This convenient feature plugs into the auxiliary port of any controllers and
allows easy configuration of most used features.
Two modes of operation
Singulation mode: product
separates while traveling down the conveyor. When it is released from the
conveyor, it creates a zone-length gap between packages. Slug mode: Product
doesn't separate when traveling down the conveyor or when it's released,
allowing higher throughput at any given conveyor speed. In slug mode, product
will not separate on the conveyor, even when accumulation has been activated at
the discharge end.
When the conveyor is set to
run in slug mode, if a packages is sensed to an EZLogic controller for 6 seconds
or longer, a signal is sent to the upstream zone to accumulate product on the
upstream side of the jammed package. This prevents product pileup until the jam
is cleared. The zone where the jam is detected continues to drive, in many cases
dislodging the product without manual assistance. Once the jam is cleared, the
conveyor returns to normal operation.
If an EZLogic controller does
not detect the presence of product for a selectable time period, the controller
stops the zone from driving. This "sleep" feature helps reduce noise and roller
wear. Packages traveling the conveyor "wake up" the zones as needed to move
When a pallet or other load
is placed in a zone by external means, the zone stops the rollers from turning
and holds back any upstream pallets for a preset time.
Indexing Stop Zone
Ideal for workstations where
a person finishes with one item then momentarily presses a switch, indexing the
next item forward.
Cascaded slug release
Rather than releasing all
cartons simultaneously, this function introduces a momentary delay in the
release of each zone from discharge upstream.
With features like dual
transducers, remote mount sensors, and many interfacing options, Gen 3 EZLogic
can grow with your system needs.
