Material Handling: Shipping and Receiving

Shippin Receiving Hero

Shipping and Receiving Automation

Banner Engineering supports shipping and receiving operations by providing products and solutions for vehicle detection, dock door identification and control, area and equipment illumination, as well as visual, audible and wireless communication

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.

M-Gage Wireless Vehicle Detection
M-Gage Wireless Vehicle Detection

Banner Engineering’s Wireless M-Gage node can easily be inserted into the core in the parking slot of a tractor trailer or dock area. The M-Gage is programmed to look for changes in magnetic state, for example in a trailer truck lane. The units are self-contained, meaning they are protected from environmental conditions. Many other solutions may not have the same protection from environmental factors.

Vehicle Presence and Absence at Loading Docks
Vehicle Presence and Absence at Loading Docks

Banner’s R-Gage QT50R senses vehicles as they approach a loading dock, sending a signal to workers inside the facility of a truck’s arrival/departure. Monitoring the arrival of trucks at loading docks is simple with the R-Gage radar sensor coupled with Banner’s quality lighting and indication solutions. The radar sensor reliably detects trucks pulling up to the loading/unloading dock from 15 meters away.

The M-GAGE S18M is a magnetoresistive sensor that responds to the shift in the surrounding magnetic field when a truck approaches. The M-GAGE is set up to trigger a signal that activates a light inside the warehouse, indicating the truck's presence. This sensors is encapsulated with rugged epoxy to resist moisture damage and was designed to be installed both above ground or directly into concrete and asphalt pavements.

Wireless Forklift Signaling
Wireless Forklift Signaling

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.

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.
