Interfaces to transport systems

general information to transport system controls
For the realization of transport systems lifts are often used to transport the goods over several floors away. A trouble-free work of such transport systems needs an interface between the external transport system control and the lift control. This interface supplies information about the lift to the external transport control and forwards its instructions to the lift control.

 

TransCar interface
The TransCar module works as interface between the FST control unit and the automatic driverless transport system TransCar from swisslog AG. It realize automatic transports for up to 14 floors, for each floor only one door-side is selectable for the automatic mode. The lift can be used for the transportation of passengers, because there are no disturbing installations in the car. The TransCar system requests the automatic mode by itself, if it needs the lift for the current transport.

 

FTS interface
The FTS module works as interface between the FST control unit and the automatic driverless transport system FTS from DS Automotion GmbH. It realize automatic transports for up to 15 floors, while in automatic mode open all doors with entrance from outside. The normal mode (manual mode) can be activated by FTS system or over key-switches in the landing panels, the automatic mode will requested automatically by the FTS system, if it needs the lift for the current transport. The lift can be used for the transportation of passengers, because there are no disturbing installations in the car.

 

AWT interface
The AWT module works as interface between the FST control unit and the automatic transport system AWT from Morath GmbH. Because there are electrical and mechanical drives in the car for the movement of the transport wagons, normal use the lift by passengers is not possible and not allowed. In normal case the transport works completely automatically, but it is possible to operate the lift over a special service panel (get/send control).

 

SuperFROG-Interface
The SuperFROG module works as interface between the FST control unit and the automatic transport system SuperFROG from Frog AGV Systems B.V. The automatic mode will requested automatically by the SuperFROG system, if it needs the lift for the current transport, and takes the control over the lift in this time. The normal call control via COP and LOP is disabled while automatic mode is running. This interface module realize automatic transports for up to 21 floors, while in automatic mode open all doors with entrance from outside. The lift can be used for the transportation of passengers, because there are no disturbing installations in the car.
