Stacker crane with regenerative supply unit

The stacker crane with regenerative supply unit application solution for maximum energy efficiency: specially developed for minimum energy consumption in pallet warehouses.

Minimize the energy consumption in your systems

Energy-efficient stacker crane with regenerative supply unit variant
Energy-saving solutions for maximum energy efficiency

The MOVI-PLC® multi-motion controller in the Configurable Control Unit (CCU) variant is integrated into the MOVIAXIS® multi-axis servo inverter. It coordinates the energy-optimized control of all the drives while complying with the maximum number of double cycles.

The innovative "Energy-efficient SRS" software module optimizes the travel cycles of the lifting and travel drives. In addition, the regenerative power supply module returns the released energy back to the system during braking and downward movements. This allows you to reduce your energy consumption by up to 50%.

Energy-efficient stacker crane software module

Parameterize instead of programming via perfectly matched software modules

The software module used is optimally adapted to the components used and the required functionality. Using the standardized application modules, you significantly reduce the time required for programming and startup. You can also extend the package by up to three auxiliary drives and parameterize them easily using the software module.

The innovative “Energy-efficient SRS” software module coordinates and optimizes the travel cycles of the lifting and travel drives, reducing energy consumption by up to 25%. To move the axes, use the software modules available in MOVI‑PLC®, such as the cam positioning and energy-saving modules. The system is controlled directly by MOVI‑PLC®. You can control additional axes using the PLC with setpoint selections in transparent mode. Our application solution for stacker cranes makes it possible for you to adjust the concept to fit your needs.
