Modern high-speed high capacity bulk material handling control systems have grown from simple electrical interlocks between adjacent conveyors to sophisticated systems using the latest available equipment and techniques to optimize both system design and operation. This presentation is a review of the present state of the bulk material handling control field particularly as it applies to conveyor systems. Some examples of material flow and starting control are described, with a review of the equipment available to achieve these objectives.
