Why use an Ultra High Capacitor bank rather than a battery? The Ultra High Capacitor bank can withstand many more cycle than a battery, it is lighter in weight overall, and it doesn’t degrade or have a memory like a battery. They are also quick to charge, making them perfect for regenerative braking.
What initiates the switching gates to be repositioned for an iBOT to continue horizontal or move vertically? The system is “self-gating” which means each iBOT initiates the gate switching locally. This is a simpler and a more reliable method.
Can I put multiple sized corrugated cartons on an iBOT tray? Yes, provided you stay within the weight and cube dimensional requirements.
Can I put an operator workstation anywhere around the perimeter of the Perfect Pick racking system? In general, yes.
Are the totes custom and what is the availability?They are currently custom because the iBOT has an extractor that pulls the tote in from the cantilever shelf.
What would expected down-time be if there is a failure relative to an obstruction? Worst case would be approximately 10 minutes for a technician to correct the issue.
How are cycle counts conducted within the Perfect Pick? They can be programmed in by many methods: highest velocity, highest value, just before a replenishment occurs, etc. They physically occur at the bump out (workstation).
Do replenishment and picking operations happen at the same end of the Perfect Pick? Also, do these functions happen in tandem? They can occur in parallel or replenishment can occur during a different shift.
