Eaton – Rapid Link 5

Rapid Link 5 is a decentralized, electronic drive system that is used for simple to complex tasks in all areas of conveyor technology. It offers all the functions required to switch, control, protect and network electric motors on conveyor belts. The system consists of the RAMO 5 electronic motor starter and the RASP 5 frequency converter, both of which are available with IP65 protection. Typical areas of application for the Rapid Link system include baggage handling systems, logistics centers and production logistics. The devices are mounted close to the drive; the connection is quick and fail-safe using standard plug-in connections. The manual and automatic operating modes can be selected with a key switch. In automatic mode, the devices communicate via the AS-Interface fieldbus, which is preferred in conveyor technology. In addition, Rapid Link 5 can now also communicate via the Ethernet / IP and Profinet fieldbus systems.

IoT ready

Rapid Link 5 forms a consistent system and covers the field bus systems AS-Interface, Profinet and Ethernet / IP. This makes it easy to integrate into IoT solutions. A high level of data transparency can also be achieved in extensive conveyor systems, which enables remote maintenance down to the device level or comprehensive energy management. In addition, all Rapid Link devices meet the highest security requirements and are therefore effectively protected against cyber attacks.
