I need help with conveyor speed in Omni Excel 7. It fluctuate, and never have a steady speed. I swapped the speed control card,calibrated, encoder, and I still have the same problem. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Does it ramp up and dowm or do you get a jerk in the conveyor every so often? Jerk in the chain is a sticky link in the chain. Lube may work but if really bad needs replacement.

The electronics degrade over time and you get troubles like you're having and you need to install a "noise reduction kit". Basically it's a new interface card set and some cables. You might call Speedline and ask tech. support if this is something you should try if you can't find any problems.

Thank you for responding. I called Speedline tech support he think there is a short some where in the motor. I changed the motor out and still have the same problem. The chain is normal, and using automatic lubricating. I will check more into this, and will post if anything come up.

Found the problem, faulty encoder or conveyor speed sensor.
