Ask Hytrol: E24i™ Overview
Ask Hytrol is our monthly video series focused on specific topics to help you maintain your conveyor system and learn about new technology. In this video, you will learn about the features and benefits of the E24i™.
The E24i is the most robust E24™ motor ever, with a higher maximum speed than the original E24™. We simplified wiring and reduced the number of spare parts by integrating the DC motor and motor control card into one package. The E24i is compatible with the existing E24™ wiring harness for power distribution and I/O.
To use with EZLogic®, connect the EZLogic® output cable to the M8 connector on the back of the motor.
There is a 4-position terminal block on the back of the E24™i motor. You can give a 24-volt input to the motor, or you can get 24-volt outputs. The first terminal block is the “Motor Run” input. When not using EZLogic®, run the motor by giving a positive 24- volt signal to the 1st terminal block.
The second terminal block is the “Reverse” input. Reverse the motor by supplying a 24-volt signal to the reverse input terminal. The third terminal block is for an external analog signal. Supply a 0-10 volt analog input, or the “Analog” input, to control the speed from a remote analog source, such as Hytrol’s Global Speed Controller.
The fourth terminal outputs 24 volts when the motor is running. Use this signal to monitor the individual status of zones or connect it to the Motor Run input of an adjacent motor to control two motors from one signal.
