The LMS (Lafayette Magnetic Sortation)
(Lafayette Magnetic Sortation)
The LMS (Lafayette Magnetic Sortation), by LEI uses electromagnetic technology in the form of multiple magnets. Inside the LMS switch, magnetic fields are used to draw the pins and/or bearings of shoes towards the diverting path. As the only divert switch to use multi-magnetic technology, the LMS has no moving components and is capable of eliminating issues such as noise level and wear and tear. With speed capabilities up to 725fpm, this model is designed specifically for highspeed sortation. The LMS switch can be used in a new system or with minor adjustments can be a drop-in unit to your current Hytrol sortation system.
