Wildeck says its AutoSenz technology is now standard on its mechanical and hydraulic VRCs (vertical reciprocating conveyors). VRC lifts are suited for transferring valuable inventory, parts, and heavy bulky materials between levels in distribution centers, warehouses, and manufacturing and assembly plants.
The new modular safety sensor – the AutoSenz M-Series – is now an integral part of the VRC's control system, providing standard auto-ranging overload/VRC jam protection that will minimize damage to material and equipment should items become jammed during lifting. Existing mechanical and hydraulic VRCs can also be upgraded with an AutoSenz M-Series Retrofit Module.
AutoSenz VRC safety systems automatically sense motor load current and determine the critical overload set point each time the VRC motor starts. Since VRC motor loads change depending on the weight of the material placed on the lift, the auto-ranging capability of Wildeck's design makes it safer than fixed set point motor overload systems.
Wildeck has also enhanced its original AutoSenz design for mechanical VRCs to incorporate a VRC service and maintenance reminder. The new feature can be programmed to appear on the display at specific service time intervals set by the factory, the end user, or VRC service technician.
