Whether you use the Hänel storage systems as stand-alone solutions with integrated inventory management or want to integrate the control units into a higher-level ERP system – the top controller MP12N from Hänel has everything already built in. There are four different operating modes available, so you can choose the right one for your storage management.
Integrated in the Hänel control system MP12N are four operating modes:
This has the complete storage management package integrated, so no additional PC is required. The Ethernet interface makes hook-up to your IT environment easy. A web server is also available so that the storage data can be displayed on the intranet.
Storage management is performed in the higherlevel host system. An integrated web browser displays any required web page on the control unit via the HTML interface. The web applications are operated via touchscreen on the control units.
The control system for quick and easy connection of our storage devices to the customer‘s ERP system. This version offers a fi le interface for storage and retrieval orders (pick lists) or individual data records. Data conversion is handled in the control system. The exchange of data is automatic and time-controlled. Route-optimized processing of orders is possible across multiple Hänel storage systems.
In this mode also, storage management is performed in the higher-level host system, and the lifts are controlled via the user interface of the external storage management software. For storage and retrieval, a drive command is sent to the lift controller by the storage management software. Communication takes place via TCP/IP.
