RelayPort

With Robots anchoring your warehouse team, order fulfillment becomes a synchronized sprint to the finish when demands are high.

A Strategy for Speed

RelayPort provides a speedy and versatile way to handle heavy workloads. The workstation consists of a picking location (called a "Touch") and a series of roller conveyors and cross wagons (called "Tabs") that carry bins to and from the operator. Designed for quick movement, Robots can reach put positions from any direction. With a max of 6 Tabs, you can start small and add Tabs later, as needed, for more capacity.

Performance

Record Setting

Designed to use human and robot power to the maximum, RelayPort is our fastest workstation, ever. Multiple Robots deliver to central cells, creating a rapid flow of Bins to the operator. Minimum exchange time for this port is less than 3 seconds. With all 6 tab modules in place, the port can handle up to 650 Bins per hour.

Usability

Safe & Accessible

An access area between RelayPort and Grid is accessible from two sides, giving service personnel the ability to reach the port's interior from different angles. Easy-to-use "bin stopper knobs" resembling arcade joysticks provide a simple and safe way to remove service covers, resolve issues, and quickly restart operations.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will the RelayPort work with both Red Line and Black Line modules?

Yes. The throughput of the RelayPort is reduced when paired with R5, but the RelayPort can be added to systems using other Red Line modules, such as the 220- or 330-mm Bins and R5.

Are the maintenance access panels on the tab modules of the RelayPort locked with a mechanical key, locked with an electrical interlock device like the grid door, or not locked at all?

No, it’s locked with a mechanical device. However, if you open the access panels the port will stop. But you can open it without any key or lock.

Is it possible to install port frames for the RelayPort to prepare for future extensions?

It is not possible because the RelayPort frame is the actual tab module, which contains a lot of electronics not possible to mount later on-site. It must arrive from Poland preassembled.

In general, installing a RelayPort is a relatively simple process. Therefore, advanced adjustment to the grid does not save much time.

What throughput can we expect from the Relay Port?

The RelayPort is built to handle up to 650 bins per hour per port when paired with the Black Line Robot, B1. The modularity of the port allows you to add from 2 to 6 tab modules to buffer more bins inside the port.

Do we have a hazard report on the new modules? Are they compliant to all the safety regulations locally?

We machine and safety test for B1 and the RelayPort.
