Automated production lines have very high requirements for electrical control design. In order to improve the quality of electronic control design and reduce the design time and cost, this article recommends a standard for electronic control design and applies it to the production line. Introduced the overview and rules of the belt conveyor electrical control system, the basic functions and precautions of the belt conveyor, with general guidance, and can provide hints for the implementation of the operation. Study the main applications from the selection of equipment of the belt conveyor control system to the selection of the master port and the slave port, and introduce the connection methods of various applications, and select the best communication method. By using the furnace lining batching packaging production line as an example, the total number of selected input and output modules is 33. All the electrical control modular design methods proposed in this article are applied, so that the time for electrical control design can be greatly shortened, and the electrical control design is like a "Building blocks" are general and very simple.
