FLX-128 Plus Loading Control

FLX-128 Plus Loading Control
Central Loading Control

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 R-PROTM Resin Protection 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
  • Minimize wiring with modular components
  • Color touchscreen
  • Remote access via web pages
  • R-PRO™, ILP, and MVP, AS ready
