Dual Controller for Vibratory Feed Systems
Variable Frequency Bowl Controller With Integrated Thyristor Controller

The Reo FT2R6/168 dual controller includes a digital MFS 168 variable frequency bowl controller and an integrated R6/439 controller for a vibratory hopper or inline.

A Reo MFS 168 digital controller varies the frequency of the output to the feeder bowl. It provides a highly stable drive frequency, independent of the power supply frequency. The MFS 168 has inputs for a track control sensor. Interfaced to an accelerometer, it provides constant feed rate, auto-tunes the drive unit, and runs the feeder at a constant amplitude.

A Reo R6/439 thyristor controller is linked to the feeder controller to provide variable speed feeding from a vibratory inline or hopper. It is interlocked to the status relay of the MFS 168 controller so a hopper cannot run unless the bowl is in run mode. This dual controller comes to you as a package, ready for easy installation.
