Realistic and flexible mapping of various storage scenarios
Using a configurator with an intuitive graphical interface, scenarios with Hänel systems, rack/shelf storage, pallet bays and other warehouse areas can be mapped very quickly. The precise structuring of the storage areas in the Hänel system is achieved with the shelf editor, which is used to define the storage container units, types of divider elements, reserved storage capacities, as well as the shelf templates.


All key parameters are clearly displayed in tables
Table columns can be configured according to user preferences. Each data field can be filtered according to defined criteria. The fields can be displayed or hidden as needed. The settings are determined by the user.



HänelSoft®-N 3-D storage visualization offers maximum storage transparency
The three-dimensional graphical storage overview shows the current situation on every storage level – this supports a visual search for storage locations. Optimal use of storage capacity can be controlled by defining container types in different sizes.
