Optical monitoring for reliable storage and retrieval.
Three cameras above the access opening record every storage and retrieval operation. Just before the operation and immediately after it a high-resolution photograph is taken of the storage situation on the relevant container.
Intelligent image analysis detects the storage location from which an item was removed or to which it was returned. This procedure is compared with the HänelSoft® storage management. If the user has taken goods from the wrong storage location or returned them incorrectly, this error is shown immediately on the display.
Only when the storage or retrieval operation has been corrected can the procedure be continued. This provides an excellent control function for avoiding errors, especially in cases where near-identical articles are stored!
If the operator has taken an item from the wrong storage location, for example, this error is displayed immediately.
The item removed by mistake is shown by a flashing display. The operator is then prompted to return the incorrectly taken item to its original storage location.
After confirmation, the operator is shown the right storage location on the display. When the correct item has been retrieved, the procedure is continued.
