It is a new optional device that allows re-using the energy generated by the descent movement of the lift, otherwise dispersed in heat form.
A special inverter inserted between the machine switch and the electrical board, performs a double function of energy stabiliser and generator.
Along with stabilizing the power supply voltage of the machine, Modula Greenfurther respects the environment, providing an energy savings of up to 40% and a short-term return on investment.
Tray extension and partitions
Partitions are useful for containing or dividing material in outlined trays. The extensions for the tray’s edges are used to contain bulky materials.
Partitions and dividers can be used to obtain maximum flexibility in re-configuring the trays when requirements change. The trays are able to be configured to have slotted perimeter walls, with slotting on 20 mm (0.79”) increments to utilize the partitions and dividers.
The number of slot locations varies depending on the dimensions of the tray, whereas the amount of partitions and dividers used varies depending on your individual requirements.
Among the available accessories of the automatic storage and retrieval system: it prints customised labels with wanted information relating to the stored material.
During picking or replenishment operations using the Modula, the operator can enter the desired information through the co-pilot operator console, and immediately print the information out in label form.
Ideal instrument for carrying out further checks on the item being picked, or vice-versa, inside automated shelving Modula. It can be used as confirmation of a put-down/picking order and for user login on the machine.
Through the use of barcode readers Modula is able to identify all operators and supply customized access to trace all picking operations.
Without the limitations of cable type devices, the wireless barcode reader offers a safer more effective environment with great mobility, while providing reliable data collection outside the range of the station.
Piece count scale
Useful for tracing materials: provides, at every moment, the exact number of pieces present in automatic cabinet and the input and output flow of materials.
Able to identify the number of pieces depending on the unit weight of the individual piece, is ideal for storing large amounts of components with reduced dimensions and essential to the operator during picking and put-down for quickly selecting the necessary amount. The scales can be single platform with a capacity of 3/6/15/30 Kg or double platform, used for weighing items with different features.
Paneled structures for Outdoor Installations
These are structures that allow the Modula to be installed outdoors to further use vertical space. Included with this option is the self supporting structure and the exterior paneling.
Systems for advanced picking: LED bars, alphanumerical bars, Put to Light systems.
These are options that make the picking operations extremely quick and easy.
X-AXIS LED BARS
Thanks to the aid of the X-Axis LED Bar, the compartment of interest is identified during picking or replenishment operations.
Its function is to aid the operator in indentifying the item to be picked or placed, by visually indicating the correct position of the item across the X-Axis (width) of the tray.
ALPHANUMERICAL BARS Easily identify the position of an item on the tray and any additional information from a high resolution display.
The Display Bar has all the advantages of the X-Axis LED Bar with the additional benefit to display further information such as an item’s name, description, part number, etc.
PUT TO LIGHT
Thanks to luminous displays in correspondence of a put-down bay, it is possible to address the picking movement on numbered bays in order to organise the picking areas and group material intended for the same order, eventually coming from difference machines, on a single transit area, called Bay.
Sliding Co-Pilot Console
Helps the operator during the intensive picking operations because it can be moved from one side of the picking bay to the other, near the actual picking point, making picking/replenishment operations at the tray even easier.
The manual trolley allows operators to completely remove a tray from the unit. Tray can be moved around for off line inspections on parts or make the parts available in remote areas of the facility, directly from the tray, while operators can keep the Modula running for other pickings.
Motorised automatic door
The industrial vertical carousel Modula Lift, can be supplied with motorised automatic door, which is available in all configurations and machine models of the Modula Lift range.
Its use is mainly aesthetical as well as to protect the inside of the machine; it becomes compulsory for the internal double bay or for bay (external or internal) at a height machine configuration. The door unit is mechanically composed by a drive shaft, connected to the drive system through a drive belt, which acts on the rack placed at the sides of the door, activating the opening and closing movement.
There are also two micro switches that, if activated by the corresponding cams, inform the control unit that the automatic door is open or closed. The electromechanical part is made of an asynchronous engine controlled by a 0.55 KW inverter.
The Modula Lift has, among the other various optionals, a USB Badge Reader also, directly connected to the Co-pilot by means of USB port.
The used model is the MSR210U, which results being the ideal instrument if wanting to have a further control on the user login. In this way, the operator must swipe own company badge to be able to access the machine, thus preventing access to unauthorised operators, in case the classical Login method by entering a password, is not sufficient. The MSR210U Badge Reader is able to offer the user a cards reader solution that complete many applications. In fact, it is possible to read single, double or triple traces enabling the ISO, AAMVA and DMV cards reading. Thanks to its compact dimensions, it is possible to apply them directly on to the Co-pilot and connect them to its USB port, for further use ergonomics.
