montrac® is the intelligent automation and transport system for interlinking industrial production and logistical processes and provides total flexibility, reliability and efficiency when it comes to conveyor technology.
For more than 20 years montrac® has optimized global production and intralogistics processes of innovators.
We begin where conventional transport systems reach their limits: montratec provides you with integrated transport and automation solutions – with intelligent control, maximum flexibility and the highest level of availability. Allowing you to sustainably advance your company amid the competition and make sure it is fit for the future.
Core components of the montrac® system, montrac® shuttles are intelligent single or twin-axle conveyors equipped with an on-board power supply. Moving self-centered on the monorail, the shuttles are equipped with state-of-the-art sensors that prevent potential collisions with obstacles or other shuttles.
Each shuttle is powered by a maintenance-free, low-voltage motor located in the axle. Cams on the T-grooves along the track specify shuttle speed and stopping positions. Speed parameters can be pre-configured to optimally meet your individual requirements.
The TC1-IRM (Intelligent Routing Module) is an optoelectronic communication module for exchanging data to enable interaction between the shuttle, rail system and SPS master control.
The shuttle and TC1-IRM communicate with each other via infra-red signals. The TC1-IRM can serve as a communication interface between the rail system and master controller or as an autonomously functioning control component.
The montrac® SmartRouter is the central, intelligent interface of the montrac® transport system. As a component of the montrac® TracControl system, the SmartRouter, among other functions, takes care of the communication of your PLC control system via fieldbus interface.
The SmartRouter has different slots for individual requirements, for example TracSwitch cards or digital I/O cards.
