Controller for vertical storage runs four different modes.
Offering color touchscreen user interface, the MP-12N line of microprocessor-based controllers can operate a line of automated vertical storage systems in four different modes. The standard mode provides integrated inventory management with multiple built-in capabilities. For use without integrated inventory management, the host-comm mode allows the ERP/WMS to control the storage unit to the bin level by exchanging CSV/flat-file data. The host-data mode--also without integrated inventory management--permits the ERP/WMS to control the equipment with structured programming lift run macros. Finally, the host-Web mode uses either the supplier's inventory management software package or customer-programmed custom interface. Hanel, 412-787-3444, www.hanel.us. Booth 1013.
