Loader Single Receiver Controller (LSR), Series 4 MPC and PLC Controllers
Coperion K-Tron

Control solutions for your vacuum sequencing and material loading applications

To control the sequence of a Coperion K-Tron multi-component vacuum sequencing system we offer Series 4 Microprocessor (MPC) and Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) controls.

The LSR Controller is available for single central or self-contained units.

KEY BENEFITS

  • Cost-effective pre-programmed and pre-engineered designs that work efficiently
  • Provide a common interface between pneumatics and feeders
  • The Coperion K-Tron customer installation guide makes "self-starts" a reality
  • Plug and play connectivity reduces installation expense
  • Accurate repeatability
  • Solutions for most any budget
  • Expertise in modern EtherNet/IP, PROFIBUS, PROFINET and other communication protocols
  • Ability to control existing equipment or equipment supplied by others

Simple Control Architecture

Our standard conveying controls provide time-tested, pre-engineered solutions for simple, self-contained systems, up to and including multicomponent sequencing systems. These controls have a proven track record, and thanks to standard design, remain the best value for the dollar. 

Standard Conveying Controls

LSR Controller

The LSR (Loader Single Receiver) Controller consolidates several applications into one system, allowing the LSR to control a Coperion K-Tron vacuum conveyor for pneumatically conveying a wide variety of bulk materials. This economical controller provides accurate, reliable control for a variety of applications - filling by time or level - and various discharge configurations, including gravity or powered gate.

Series 4 MPC Controller

Controls up to 24 vacuum receivers on one blower with one back-up blower and is designed to be used with both P-Series and 2400 Series Receivers.

Low voltage, quick connect plugs allow the controller to be connected to the central controller without tools and generally does not require an electrician or conduit.

Series 4 PLC Controller

The Series 4 PLC Central Controller consists of two models: one controls up to 24 vacuum receivers any combination on 2 blowers. The other controls up to 32 vacuum receivers on 4 blowers with up to 8 receivers per blower. The Series 4 PLC Controller is designed to be used with both P-Series and 2400 Series Receivers.

A low voltage cable system with quick-connect plugs allows the receivers to be connected to the central controller without tools allowing for a less expensive electrical installation.
