The controller for fast connectivity to your inventory management system
The quick and easy way to connect our storage units to your inventory management system
The control keypad with touchscreen operation offers optimal ergonomics for processing jobs. The pick and put orders are generated in the storage management system and passed on to the warehouse in data form. The orders are then processed at the storage lift(s) in route-optimized sequence. The controller buffers up to 5,000 list items. With the pre-positioning option, all the lifts in an order picking group are positioned simultaneously. Each confirmed pick or put operation is reported back to the storage management system as an inventory booking. Data communication between the storage systems is based on FTP or CIFS protocol.
The integrated web server offers the option of displaying the buffer contents directly on the controller or via an external PC browser according to various criteria.
The lift controller is simultaneously a full-scale operating terminal for the storage management system.
Easy-to-read color TFT touch display with integrated web browser for showing the storage management user interface.
Direct access to the storage management database from each storage lift.
No additional PC hardware required to operate the lifts in the warehouse.
Processing data records
The data records contain the storage and retrieval information such as job number, part number, storage location and quantity. Pro- cessing is sequential or priority-controlled.
The configuration software is used to enter the setup data (once only) for the MP12N-HostData: – the parameters for integration into the network infrastructure – adaptation of the interface to the customer-specific data format – definition of the time intervals for each data import or export.
