Diverse options

The greatest flexibility for every need

The Vertical Buffer Module series features a broad range of optional extras, providing the greatest flexibility in the warehouse. Components can largely be integrated before or after installation thanks to the modular design. This means that the system can be precisely configured to meet the most diverse needs. 

Access openings

Various access openings and picking stations

Various access openings and picking stations are available for the Vertical Buffer Module. Up to four of them can be fitted on the end face, front, or rear of a unit. The different types of access opening can be combined with one another in one unit.

LED pointer

LED pointer

The LED pointer is used for the reliable identification of retrieval and storage positions at picking stations. It is a fixed high-power LED light source and generates a spot of light that is projected directly into the retrieval/storage compartment of a bin/tray using a controllable mirror. Every single compartment position can be individually selected with no preset calibration. The item to be removed is specifically highlighted by the spot of light and can thus be easily identified by the operator.

Position indicator

Position indicator

The indicator located on the display of the control panel helps the operator to identify the storage location in the bin/tray. A long and time-consuming search for the requested item is no longer necessary. The position indicator quickly and reliably guides the operator to the right place.

LED lighting

LED lighting

The externally located LED lighting integrated in a canopy above the access opening simplifies the task of the picker, especially in problematic light conditions. The lighting can be switched on and off via the user display.

Optical status signals

Optical status signals

The optical status signals assist the operator while picking orders and storing away goods. A long and time-consuming search is no longer necessary. The optical picking signals quickly and reliably guide the operator to the right place.

Fixed bar code scanner

A fixed bar code scanner is optionally available for the units. This automatically scans the bin bar code so that the bin can be booked into the unit software and stored away.

Fixed RFID scanner

Fixed RFID scanner

A fixed RFID scanner is also available instead of the fixed bar code scanner. It can perform the same functions as the fixed bar code scanner.

ESD version

ESD version

ESD protection is available to protect the stored goods from electrostatic discharge. The ESD version requires the Vertical Buffer Module to be equipped with ESD-compatible bins/trays.

Fire protection

Fire protection

Cover plates with hot-melt film and openings for sprinklers are available to meet the customers’ fire protection requirements. It is possible to install gas nozzle pipes or sprinkler pipes for gas or water extinguishing systems in the area of the field reinforcements.

Mixed storage

Mixed storage

A mix of bins and trays of various widths (e.g., 600 x 400 mm, 640 x 440 mm, or 625 x 425 mm) can be stored in one unit. The trays have useable inner dimensions of at least 610 x 410 mm and are between 40 and 75 mm high. They serve as carriers for storing bins, cardboard boxes, or small parts.

Automatic height detection

Automatic height detection

Each access opening is fitted with an excess height control system as standard. Goods measuring up to four different heights can be stored and managed.

Clearance control

Clearance control

This option serves to protect sensitive and valuable items and reduce the risk of crash situations. Vertical light barriers monitor any impermissible excess bin height in the aisle area. In the event of an error, either the machinery does not start moving or its movement is interrupted and an error message is reported.

Confirmation button

Confirmation button

An externally located confirmation button is optionally available for the picking station. The operator can use this to confirm storage or retrieval. The confirmation button is integrated in the access opening / picking station.

RFID scanner for user login

RFID scanner for user login

An optional RFID scanner is integrated in the console of the operator panel for user login by chip.

Extra socket and interfaces

Extra socket and interfaces

An externally located socket and various interfaces (2x USB, 1x Ethernet) are optionally available for the picking station.
