Total Control of Conveying Systems; Easily Expandable

Now with features never offered before by any conveying control, the FLX-128 Plus was designed for today’s newest conveying technology. The FLX-128 Plus maintains all the features and capability that made the original FLX-128 so popular, plus much more! Smarter, faster, and stronger, the FLX-128 Plus is designed to work with Conair’s Wave Conveying™ System, the ILP (Invisible Line Proofing), the MVP (Material Vision Proofing) and the AS (AutoResin Selector). The FLX-128 Plus Flexible Control System utilizes a combination of centralized I/O and expansion modules, interconnected via industrial Ethernet to provide control of up to 128 receivers, 40 pumps (plus 2 back-up pumps) and 256 source valves. A color touchscreen with descriptive picture icons assures that even with little or no training, any user will be comfortable monitoring or making changes on up to 40 independently operating vacuum systems.

Economical and expandable

Buy only the control capacity you need today, and then expand with additional modules as your business grows. The FLX-128 Plus is the right choice for small systems all the way up to 128 receivers and 40 pumps.

Minimize wiring with modular components

Groups of receivers, pumps and valves can be easily added with a simple Ethernet connection to modular expansion panels.

Remote access via web pages

Ethernet connection allows you to connect and view the system from any PC, anytime, anywhere.
