Modular and Distributed
ATR’s patented solution places the control where it’s needed. Each sort module manages its own operation, communicating with upstream and downstream modules, and also with supervisory control. This modular approach ensures high performance, and easy system reconfiguration.
The supervisory control system is designed to easily integrate with external systems for sort assignments, reporting, and updates. Its Graphical User Interface (GUI) makes it easy to add or remove sort modules at any time. The sorter will automatically re-configure itself in response to layout changes. The owner/operator can reconfigure the sorter — there is no need to call in outside assistance when the sorter utilization plan changes.
Graphical screens provide a wide range of diagostics. Operators and technicians can see the state of all sensors, check for error conditions, and activate all motors to test and troubleshoot operations. Event logs can show where jams are occurring, and identify incipient problem areas.
Integrates easily with your existing logistics system for sortation logic, reporting and monitoring. The sorter can work with your:
- Warehouse Management System (WMS)
- Warehouse Control System (WCS)
- Order Management System (OMS)
- Transportation Management System (TMS)
Stand-alone operation is also possible with the built-in sort plan editor.
