The automated system’s architecture is based on intelligent subsystems, each having its own PLC and functions. Should a part fail, the unaffected components operate independently to assume control and operation of the system without any data loss, giving a high level of redundancy. Commands and communication are uninterrupted.
The speed of operation depends on the weight of the vehicle, which is measured during the entry process. Faster transportation can be achieved using this method than with constant-speed systems.
In addition, all automation and electrical components are sourced from Siemens thereby avoiding compatibility problems.
No hydraulic or pneumatic parts are used.
