The BAUR Versand Increases Staff Efficiency
- Automation & Control - Supervisory Control & Data Acquisition (SCADA)
- Warehouse & Inventory Management
- Warehouse Automation
For the operation of the warehouse, including goods receipt, high rack warehouse, sorting equipment and conveyor belts, BAUR uses multiple conveyor systems and 14 stacker cranes (RBG). These are monitored and controlled by more than 60 programmable logic controllers around the clock. The messages run in the central WinCC visualization system together in the control room. Baur wanted to avoid unnecessary travel and thus increase the efficiency of staff deployment and save time.
EXTEND7000 was integrated into the existing control concept and is coupled directly to the Siemens S7-300 / 400 controllers via TCP / IP. The control programs have not been changed for this purpose, nor had CPUs are restarted. The accruing here messages are forwarded directly to the BlackBerry devices of technicians. The technical staff can anytime, anywhere receive alarms.
