Cargo transfer logic circuitry

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #4045681.

A cargo loading and unloading shutoff system is used to control transfer of loads between a cargo aircraft and a loading dock. Control logic means compares commands entered on a control console and the existing conditions in the aircraft and on the dock during a loading or unloading operation. On loading, the logic means shuts off the dock conveyor drive immediately when all loads are transferred to selected aircraft positions and then shuts off the aircraft conveyor drive a predetermined period later. On unloading, the logic means shuts off both the aircraft and dock conveyor drives simultaneously when all loads are transferred to selected dock positions. The logic means also prevents energization of the aircraft and dock conveyor drives when the number of load positions selected in the aircraft is different from the number of load positions selected on the dock.
