Research on Auto Control System for Ship Loader Based on AC800M
Ship loader is one of the most key equipments for bulk material handing in bulk port. This paper regards the ship loader as the study object, introduces an auto detection technology of cabin position and material distribution, and advances a new control measure for automation loading. The field-bus technology of Profibus, AC800M series PLC, inverter, encoder was adopted to build automatic control system. In the mean time, the control code and the ship loader Management System, which is written in Control Builder for AC800M and Visual Basic independently, are used to actual ship loading process without people.
