South West England, September 2019

Design, assembly, electrical installation and commissioning of a parcel sortation system in a local distribution centre for a large multi-national online retailer.

The conveyor system provided by our partners features 12 x main line conveyors, 8 x sub-line conveyors and 9 x introduction conveyors with 12 x Harting Adaptors and 2 x VFD’s for the incline conveyors. Our control system utilises a fully risk assessed safety system incorporating 20 x Pull-Chords and 10 x Push Buttons on one global E-Stop circuit. The system is housed in a free standing, modular, power coated Rittal cabinet utilising Schneider control gear and Phoenix connection terminals throughout. Control is through a Siemens ET200SP 1510SP-1 PN PLC with event logging and UPS, presented on a Siemens Comfort 22" HMI, uniquely repeated over Wifi to a remote 55" LCD TV.
