Material Handling: Shipping and Receiving
We have an extensive catalog of sensors, LED lights and indicators, safety equipment, and wireless products that improve operational efficiency and accuracy and help protect personnel. From all-weather sensors that detect vehicle presence and position at the dock to high visibility LED indicators with audible that provide status indication on equipment or alert personnel to hazards, Banner Engineering supports shipping and receiving operations at every step.
Detecting trucks and signalling arrival, wireless communication
Banner’s ABR barcode readers ABR Series barcode readers with a 2MP (1600 x 1200 pixels) imager reliably read small or complex barcodes, even at large distances or field of views, helping maintain accountability and an efficient flow of packages throughout a distribution center. The ABR barcode reader is ready to scan right out of the box with SMART TEACH push button for teaching codes directly on the device.
Banner’s wireless solutions can have multiple gateways tied to respective nodes, allowing for elimination of all wires and providing flexible mounting options. The wireless structure of gateways and nodes are responsible for communicating the critical I/O throughout the facility. Even with multiple wireless products, the wireless communication system is efficient and has no cross talk interference and does not interfere with the IT department.
Banner provides sensing and industrial LED lighting solutions to help minimize carton and product damage inside a container. Banner’s QS18FF with background suppression has a fixed range of up to 100 mm with an 850 microsecond response time, allowing for easy detection of the packages/cargo and ensuring the extendable conveyor does not crush cartons. Banner’s WLB32 is a cost-effective, LED lighting solution available in AC and DC versions with a high lumen output that ensures proper illumination.
Banner’s Q45 wireless call sensor communicates to a wireless DX80, signaling that forklift drivers can remove the completed pallet for shipping. This helps keep the conveyor clear, keep it moving faster and leads to more productivity. Since forklift drivers are being called to action more quickly, it allows for more productivity.
Use shifts in magnetic fields to detect arrival and trigger alert
