For more than 10 years Hänel has been developing effective energy-saving technologies for automated storage systems and intralogistics
Even when it comes to automated storage and material handling, business enterprises are placing increased emphasis on the importance of sustainability and environmental protection to save precious natural resources.
In 2008 Hänel developed and launched the Hänel EcoConcept with various features for reducing energy consumption in Hänel storage systems.
These systems have been further enhanced over the past 10 years and are in operation at customer sites around the world.
The effective energy consumption of automated material and file handling systems has a major impact on operating costs, amortization, and not least on environmental protection.
For this reason we have always placed great emphasis on continually optimizing the energy efficiency of our storage systems.
Energy-efficient systems are the key to sustainability in your warehouse
The built-in frequency converter converts the kinetic energy of the descending extractor into electrical energy and feeds it back into the electrical supply system. This recovers up to 40 % of the energy required by the storage system, depending on the rate of extractor travel.
Continuous monitoring of the load situation in the Rotomat® and adherence to the storage recommendations ensures that balanced load distribution is achieved. As a result, only minimal energy is needed to set the storage system in motion.
With this standby technology, all systems that consume energy, even when at standstill, are shut down by the control system in four (energy-saving) EcoMode® levels. This minimizes the energy intake of Hänel storage systems when they are idle for extended periods of time.
Our specialists will continue to work on the Hänel EcoConcept and develop further energy-efficient solutions for Hänel storage systems – for the sake of the environment!
