Inline powered roller conveyors are usually used for more heavy-duty applications than gravity fed conveyors.
Motorized conveyors have control zones that are used to control the speed and direction of the conveyor. The control zones are usually located at the beginning and end of the conveyor. The control zone at the beginning of the conveyor is used to start and stop the conveyor. The control zone at the end of the conveyor is used to reverse the direction of the conveyor.
