Energy-efficient systems are the key to lowering energy consumption in your warehouse
The effective energy consumption of automated material and file handling systems has a major impact on operating costs, amortization and not least on environmental protection.
For this reason we have always placed great emphasis on continually optimizing the energy efficiency of our storage systems. This brings our customers many benefits, both from an economic and an ecological perspective!
Optimizing the energy balance with intelligent concepts
The goal of continually optimizing the energy balance of the Hänel storage systems is a challenge we embrace every day. Under the heading Hänel EcoConcept we constantly develop components that contribute to improving energy efficiency.
The built-in frequency converter converts the kinetic energy of the descending extractor into electrical energy and feeds it back into the electrical supply system. This enables up to 40% of the required energy to be recovered depending on the rate of travel.
Continuous monitoring of the load situation in the Rotomat® and adherence to the storage recommendations ensures that an even load distribution is achieved. This means only minimal energy is needed to start the storage carousel rotating.
All systems that consume energy even when in standby mode are closed down by the control system in 4 EcoMode® levels (energy-saving levels). This reduces the energy intake of the Hänel storage systems to a minimum when they are not being used.
The Hänel Lean-Lift® stores all items in height-optimized positions, which ensures extremely compact storage in a minimum of space. This optimal use of storage area inevitably results in energy savings.
The vertical carousel principle of the Hänel Rotomat® is energy-efficient in its very design. Using the Hänel EcoLoad® system makes sure the weight distribution inside the Rotomats® is balanced out.
As a result of this, very little energy is required for a rotation or travel movement. And of course the unit always picks the shortest route automatically.
Careful selection of high-quality components and technologies brings more energy savings.
Energy-efficient drive systems
Motors controlled by frequency converter use considerably less energy than drives powered directly from the mains and running at full load.
