Pneumatic tube system motor plate offers hospitals additional enhancements

We are pleased to offer an enhancement like this to the facilities that have Pevco™ systems

Swisslog, a leading provider of pneumatic tube systems for hospitals, introduces a replacement station motor plate for Pevco™ pneumatic tube system stations.

"We are pleased to offer an enhancement like this to the facilities that have Pevco™ systems," says John Kennedy, Swisslog's Pneumatic Tube System Product Manager. "We designed the unit to be a more serviceable assembly making routine maintenance tasks simpler and allow for a quicker return to service."

Design improvements include faster mechanism positioning, an improved full bin sensor, highly reliable non-contact optical switches, molded dispatcher and slide plate seals for positive carrier lift-off and soft carrier landing. The unit is easily removed for routine maintenance.

One of the major benefits of the motor plate is that it provides the ability to add RFID technology to Pevco™ mechanical components. RFID is used in pneumatic tube systems for carrier tracking, carrier inventory management and segmenting carriers by function to reduce the potential for cross-contamination.

Swisslog's replacement station motor plate assembly is designed for 6-inch Pevco™ single line send/receive stations. Versions are available for stations running Pevco™ control panels and those that have been upgraded to run on Swisslog's TransLogic IQ control panels.
