Smart bins in the small parts warehouse: The universal sensor for small parts storage bins and shelves is now available!
Corona-related absences, plant closures, home offices and supply shortages have led to an information gap in materials management globally. Stock levels need to be cut in order to save costs, availability must be ensured, the responsible employees are in home office and/or on short-time work. The risk of production standstill, poor delivery capability and delayed maintenance work due to missing materials in the warehouse increases, as the physically available stock corresponds less and less with the theoretical data in the inventory management system.
Retrofitting an intelligent warehouse without lead time
The universal sensor “Industrial small” fits containers from 12×17 to 30×40 cm, as well as goods stored loose in the manufacturer’s carton (e.g. yard goods, individual packages, etc.).
The sensor units continuously measure the content weight of the container, but are wireless and fully mobile. With a dead weight of just a few grams, the sensor unit can optionally be attached to the container – so that you do not miss any material removals in intralogistics and at the assembly station.
The sensor units have a unique ID and are not permanently connected to the storage location. This means that every warehouse and every material group can be retrofitted and the technology can still be positioned flexibly.
One size fits all
You have complete freedom and flexibility, no matter which containers you already use – even if you change container format or manufacturer in the future. With a maximum load capacity of 40 kg, even demanding product groups can be handled. The only maintenance part is the battery, which you can replace yourself after several years. The energy range can be checked continuously in the cloud software. Exciting added values result from the temperature and motion detection integrated in the sensor units.
The integrated intelligence and radio technology is controlled via the TeDaLoS Cloud, a multilingual European online software. There is no need for local IT or network integration of the hardware. The cloud software is GDPR-compliant and displays to you, and if desired also to your customers or external parties, the physically available quantities and historical stock changes in your units of measurement and your article and cost centre designations. The integrated report and alarm function ensures that you are informed earlier and more accurately about demand for reordering. Standard programming interfaces allow you to transfer business-critical data into your IT system (ERP, WMS, etc.).
No IT know-how
Within a few minutes you put the hardware into operation yourself – without training. You assign your material, cost centre and reorder threshold online from your workplace, from your home office or mobile on your smartphone.
