Direct actuation of the Hänel storage systems by drive commands

The control system for local and mobile use

In this mode, storage management is performed in the higher-level host system. 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. The control point for the lift can be a fixed PC workstation or a mobile terminal.

The pluses

  • Customers can also use their existing storage management software for the Hänel machines.
  • The units are then operated via the familiar user interface of the storage management software.
  • The interface between storage management software and lift is reduced to a few commands using a TCP/ IP connection.
