The iDrive™ is the newest addition to Dorner Mfg’s 2200 series. The iDrive merges the latest drive systems with a compact design for applications where space is tight.
By integrating the motor, gearbox and motor controller into a single, space-saving package, Dorner redefines the application footprint for small product conveyors. iDrive is capable of widths as narrow as 3 inches and lengths as long as 12 feet, speeds of 100 feet-per-minute with a load capacity as high as 30 pounds.
“Without question, the iDrive takes our 2200 Series – already the most widely applied conveyor platform of its kind – to a whole new level,” said Rich Ryan, chief operating officer for Dorner Mfg. “We now offer a virtually limitless range of conveyor widths and lengths to meet our customers’ specific small-parts handling needs. It’s really pretty exciting to offer this integrated technology in such a compact package.”
iDrive is a variable speed system and is reversible for maximum application flexibility. Control switches are easy-to-use, conveniently located and protected by a high-impact case. Setup of this new conveyor is easier than ever, as the controls are integrated directly into the compact system.
Other features include a drive roller measuring just 1.25” in diameter for smooth product transfers as well as a maintenance free, brushless DC motor and 115V single-phase input power supply.
The iDrive complements many features found on the Dorner low profile 2200 conveyor platform, including: self tracking v-guided belts, rack and pinion belt tensioning for fast and accurate adjustments, built-in belt tension indicators for preventative maintenance and T-slots for fast and simple mounting of controls and accessories.
