Banner Wireless Call-for-Parts Kit Boosts Process Speeds, Reduces Communication Inefficiencies

DCS Banner Wireless Call for Parts Kit Boosts Process Speeds 1 400

 July 28, 2022

 

Advanced Motion & Controls Ltd. recently began offering products by Banner Engineering, including its new wireless Call-for-Parts kit. This productivity solution reduces communication inefficiencies and boosts process speeds with wireless buttons and operator interfaces. A self-contained solution, the Call-for-Parts kit can function independent of supervisory systems like a PLC or HMU.

Among the advantages that customers get from this Banner option are higher productivity, reduced wait times, simpler communication, and better data-driven decisions.

Up to 35 workstations

The Call-for-Parts kit allows up to 35 workstations to call out to 12 forklifts or mobile responders with wireless K70 buttons, a DXM700 wireless controller, and wireless Direct Select operator interfaces. By creating a call system with wireless indicators, workstations maintain a steady workflow and resolve major issues immediately. Among the relevant applications: calling for delivery of raw materials, service, maintenance, or pickup of finished goods, and warehouse truck loading and unloading.

Users can also lower transportation times with battery-powered wireless displays that direct mobile responders where to go when they are needed most. This solution from Advanced Motion & Controls also reduces wait times for materials and finished goods to be removed by allowing operators with wireless call buttons at their stations for simple requesting. Efficiency metrics help accelerate problem resolution while providing further insights into production processes.

The kit also simplifies communication between operators and mobile responders by delivering a clear display of locations that need assistance. High-visibility LED indicators distinguish whether a station is calling or waiting, while service calls are stored in a dynamic queue, directing mobile responders to the callers that have been waiting longer.

The Banner wireless Call-for-Parts kit allows supervisors to streamline operations with data-driven decisions. The product tracks the total time and number of requests, as well as the total time to acknowledge them, enabling analysis of average delivery and acknowledgement times for each station. Alerts help supervisors to schedule extra mobile responders if required, and they can get the needed information to react quickly to workstation requests and drive efficiency improvements based on previously unavailable data.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
