Connect Fixed Assets
Integrate fixed assets into a cohesive system to unlock the potential of a fully enabled, automated warehouse. Prevent downtime, reduce waste and increase productivity.
More than just a building, your Material Handling facility is a network of interconnected assets with a variety of unique needs and challenges. Fortunately, many assets fall into similar equipment categories, making their integrations easier to manage. Some assets are mobile, moving around in an area of your facility, while others are relatively fixed in location. We look at fixed and mobile assets separately to break down their different needs, then we integrate these elements into a cohesive system, both within each zone and throughout the entire OT network.
Fixed Assets to Consider
Whether a short live roller system or miles of transport belts, conveyors move large volumes with minimal manual effort. The increasing scale of I/O density demands superior cordsets and flexible data aggregation.
High-volume train or linear-style sortation systems handle materials with speed and accuracy. EMI-inducing elements and complex cable management mean data transmission rates and noise immunity affect success.
Manual Work Centers
Even highly automated Material Handling systems use part-time manual work centers during peak times or when correcting errors. These manual work centers require stable connections to associated systems.
In-line scanners enable item tracking by quickly and accurately reading material information at induction and at major decision points to ensure each item travels to the right destination. This data traffic requires high availability and bandwidth.
Printing & Labeling
Packaging facilities must apply label to boxes and containers, whether manually or automatically, as they are filled. The industrial network must accommodate a large density of connected printers and labelers.
Modern facilities rely on cameras to monitor obstructed or hard-to-access areas, including mission-critical operations zones, and feed information back to a centralized control room.
