Conveyor Control

This convenient conveyor control has a dual-voltage design which makes it unique. It is fast, efficient, and well-designed.

 

Case Study:

PROBLEM:

Elan was originally invited to simply quote an alternative to the existing speed control supplied by a competitor due to cost and reliability concerns.

ELAN SOLUTION:

Elan designed a lower cost solution that accepts dual-voltages.

RESULTS:

Elan’s dual-voltage design eliminated the need for a very expensive ($20+) transformer, saving an estimated $75K + per year. Speed control performance has been improved over the previous design, reducing field warranty service claims.

 Ice Maker & Ice/Water Dispenser

This platform for ice maker and ice/water dispenser is a product that helps OEMs differentiate their model lines with custom-designed user interfaces.

Case Study:

PROBLEM:

A commercial ice-making equipment OEM wanted to tackle a new untapped market. They desired an upscale look and feel for the user interface consistent with their strategic vision.

ELAN SOLUTION:

Elan proposed a user Interface (UI) using capacitive touch technology used in high end appliances to capture the high-end look desired by the OEM. In addition, the machine control, with UI disconnected, can retrofit into their existing models, providing the opportunity to share the control across multiple platforms. Further, an integrated switching power supply means the control accepts universal voltage so that domestic and foreign models can use the same control.

RESULTS:

The UI look is fantastic. The new control was featured in the Technology Showcase at the NAFEM (North American Food Equipment Manufacturers) show in 2011. Elan provided software at no charge to aid the OEM in defining operation for different models; the control has already been selected for additional new models being introduced to support all with the same SKU control.
