Rapid Link Modular Motor Control System
The traditional internal transport control system consists of a large, central wiring cabinet containing a
PLC and many I/O cards. All of the remote control systems (e.g. motor starters and sensors) are wired
back to the main panel resulting in potentially hundreds of feet of control cable per item. Each internal
transport automation project is a unique control design, program, and installation. The end result is a
great deal of time to design, program, install, and test each unique project.
The Rapid Link Modular Motor Control System is a network of stand-alone motor control units that are
located throughout the greenhouse and connected via a common power and communications bus. The
advantage of this system is that each motor control system can be programmed, tested, and installed
independent of the rest of the control system.
• Up to 25% reduction in project engineering and installation time.
• 50% less cabling.
Reduced System Downtime:
• Improved diagnostic capabilities, plug-in cabling, and common part usage, enable quick troubleshooting
• Waterproof wiring connections.
• Easy expansion capability.
