MP 0 N

Single lift controller for the Hänel Rotomat®

The MP 0 N is designed as a single-lift controller for the Hänel Rotomat® with one access point. It offers three different operating modes:

MP 0 N-StandAlone
MP 0 N-HOST
MP 0 N-BARCODE

The high-resolution TFT display can handle virtually any language. A lift run graphic shows the movements of the lift.

The user-friendly menu structure for information and system services makes it easy to work efficiently. An RS 232 interface for connecting peripheral systems (PC, barcode reader, etc.) is also integrated. The Hänel EcoLoad® can be integrated into the MP 0 N as an option. It ensures even load distribution in the Hänel Rotomat®.

This helps to save energy and avoid dangerous load imbalances. The load status is depicted graphically on the display. Storage locations are pinpointed by compartment LEDs, and sub-level indicators are also possible if required. The ‘Operation by remote control‘ module in conjunction with the requisite safety equipment can be used to control the Rotomat® directly from a PC or barcode reader.

MP 100 D

The central controller

The MP100D – high-performance central control system for up to 99 storage units

Hänel developed the central control system MP100D so that a large number of storage units can be managed effortlessly with the integrated storage management packages from Hänel. It manages the data of up to 99 storage units.

The client control system MP12N can be used as the control panel for each lift – this means each lift is operated independently of the others.

All the stored articles are managed centrally via the MP100D. It has space for 100,000 part numbers in up to 400,000 storage locations and 4,000 pick lists, job lists or parts lists with up to 100,000 items. Powerful order-picking functions make work in the warehouse easier.

Processing of the pick and put lists, for example, can be either route-optimized, time-optimized or sequential. Route lists can be configured to ensure that users walk the shortest distances through the warehouse.

To boost order picking speed, the shelf/tray pre-positioning option can be used, which simultaneously positions multiple lifts in an order picking group. The standard Ethernet interface enables data to be exchanged with higher-level host systems. To ensure problem-free connectivity, the MP100D contains an FTP client and data conversion software. The inte-grated web server provides access to the storage data in the customer‘s corporate network.

The integrated Hänel storage management packages can be adapted to individual customer needs with numerous add-on modules.

The pluses

  • Management of data of up to 99 storage units (depending on the version).
  • Route lists can be stored to ensure short walking distances.
  • Integrated web server for data retrieval via the intranet/internet.
  • Data conversion software.
  • FTP client for rapid connection.
  • Ethernet interface for exchanging data with higher-level systems (HOST, ERP systems, etc.).
  • All storage lifts can be operated independently and simultaneously.

The integrated storage management packages of the MP controllers from Hänel

Intelligent inventory control with the storage management packages from Hänel

Contained in the compact controllers MP 14 N, MP 12 N-StandAlone and the central control system MP 100 D is a Hänel inventory control package. This means all the inventory control functions are already integrated.
The storage data are saved on compact flash cards that guarantee high data security and insensitivity to dust, dirt and vibration.
All inventory bookings are imme-diately written to the memory card by a secure procedure. Even if the control system is switched off unexpectedly, your data are still safe.
The MP 100 D also offers the option of using a second memory card as an automatic backup medium.

No additional PC is required!

Three storage management packages are available:

  • Hänel article management
  • Hänel tool management
  • file management

All three packages boast easy-to-handle user interfaces and maximum storage management functionality.

Ein System mit Zukunft

Energy-efficient systems are the key to lowering energy consumption in your warehouse

The effective energy consumption of automated material and file handling systems has a major impact on operating costs, amortization and, critically, on environmental protection.

For this reason we have always placed great emphasis on continually optimizing the energy efficiency of our storage systems. This brings our customers many benefits, both from an economic and an ecological perspective!

The efficient design principle:

Hänel Lean-Lift®
The Hänel Lean-Lift® stores all items in height-optimized positions, which ensures extremely compact storage in a minimum of space. This optimal use of storage area inevitably results in energy savings.

Hänel Rotomat®
The vertical carousel principle of the Hänel Rotomat® is energy-efficient in its very design. Using the Hänel EcoLoad® system makes sure the weight distribution inside the Rotomats® is balanced out. As a result of this, very little energy is required for a rotation or travel movement. And of course the unit always picks the shortest route automatically.

Design optimization
Careful selection of high-quality components and technologies brings more energy savings.

Energy-efficient drive systems
Motors controlled by frequency converter use considerably less energy than drives powered directly from the mains and running at full load.

Optimizing the energy balance with intelligent concepts
The goal of continually optimizing the energy efficiency of the Hänel storage systems is a challenge we embrace every day.

Under the heading Hänel EcoConcept we constantly develop components that contribute to improving energy efficiency.
