New wireless devices from nextLAP for "Smart Shelf"

New wireless call buttons and roller rail sensor for the flexible optimization of stocks and flows of materials in production and intralogistics

Munich, 6th February 2019 – nextLAP GmbH (www.nextlap.de) has expanded its portfolio of IIoT-based solutions for the simple digital control and automation of production and intralogistics processes. The new items include two wireless devices ‒ a call button and a roller rail sensor. Both are compatible with nextLAP’s "Smart Shelf" solution, which connects IoT devices with nextLAP’s IP/1 platform that acts as a data hub. The "Smart Shelf" is used for optimizing material flows, ergonomics and inventories.

Thanks to nextLAP’s modular rack system, all kinds of order-picking processes can be easily digitized and automated. The "Smart Shelf" comprises IoT buttons with an LED screen, controller, and a screen or tablet. Shelves and storage areas are equipped with IIoT components and connected to the IP/1 platform, where all data are brought together and analyzed in real time.

The new call button and roller rail sensor complement nextLAP's wireless IIoT hardware portfolio. The wireless devices give the solutions the highest level of flexibility.

Wireless call button
The wireless call button enables material to be retrieved in real time ‒ directly and error-free ‒ at the press of a button, for instance for delivery to large load carriers (LLC). In addition, the call button sends selected information to the operator using a graphics-capable, high-contrast, yet energy-saving e-paper display. This applies, for instance, to order status, part numbers, or barcodes for material linking by scanner, allowing valuable information to be accessed and viewed easily and quickly.

Wireless roller rail sensor
The wireless roller rail sensor reliably registers the allocation status of roller conveyor positions – optionally from one or two container positions. If a container position is empty, a wireless message is sent that is directly translated to a material request. The flow rail concept allows a very flexible and simple connection to existing rail systems in flow racks.

Plug and play installation and easy connection to "Smart Shelf"
Both devices are plug and play components and 100% wireless. They are battery operated and maintenance free for 2 to 12 years. They communicate via the LoRa™ wireless network. This interference-resistant and energy-efficient technology allows ranges of up to 1000 m and ensures very high scalability up to several hundred devices that can be quickly and easily configured and connected to the nextLAP "Smart Shelf" app.
