Smart solutions for Intralogistics 4.0

Storage and conveyors combined with sorting and picking tasks are the essential parts of intralogistics. Modern logistic architectures require maximum throughput and optimum operation, with the highest efficiency and flexilitity. Decentralisation, innovative sensor technologies, smart controllers, and enhanced DC technologies for modern shuttle systems are some of the key technologies that are critical to the success of the installations.

Beyond this, big data management and artificial intelligence are pushing the industry to the next level of industrialisation. Weidmüller is not only offering a full portfolio of products and solutions for electrical connectivity and communication, but also comprehensive industry knowledge - to ensure the success of our customers storage and conveyor systems and to enter the stage of Intralogistics 4.0, providing totally new business models to you. As our customer you can get best-fit solutions to your innovative processes and highly dynamic markets.

As an experienced partner for Intralogistics, our customers can be sure of:

Electrical connectivity

Electrical connectivity

For years we have been well-known for all types of electrical connectivity. Sensor and communication cables, distribution modules, all kinds of connectors and terminal blocs; tailor-made according to your requirements and supported by unique 3D-engineering software interacting with your systems.

Decentralisation - based on FieldPower®

Decentralisation - based on FieldPower®

This system platform provides unique technical features for flexible field installations directly at the conveyors. DC Power Management, remote I/O, sensor data aquisition, condition monitoring, and motor starters are some of the exciting applications Weidmüller provides to its customers.

Electronics, automation, and digitalisation

Electronics, automation, and digitalisation

Whatever your cabinets need, we provide high-tech electronic and communication modules with the highest reliability. Besides remote I/O and controller technologies: with our IoT-gateways you will discover "beyond automation" and combine the task "from the sensor to the cloud" with analytics competences to support your new business models

Weidmüller is the first vendor providing condition monitoring data out of our DC power supplies. By this, our customers are very close to the performance of the DC system and provide optimum reliability. If you want to provide these data to a cloud our recommendation is to use one of our IoT gateway!

Facing market challenges with innovation and passion

Storage

Storage

Storage

Independent of what you want to store, the storage has to be compact with otimised capacity per storage area and high efficiency in all aspects. With our electronics and automation solutions we are strong supporters of these requirements, regardless of floor cabinet installations or moving on high bay retrieval machines. And when it comes to shuttle systems, our DC-Management systems excel as compact DC loading stations.

Conveying

Conveying

Conveying

Flexibility, modularity, and decentralisation of electrical installations to wide-spread conveyor equipment is a must. Field wiring products and decentralised function modules with high protection grade IP65 can solve all applications along the conveyor lines - with no doubt, for fast assembly and commissioning and even for cold storage areas at -30 °C.

Product highlights for Intralogistics

Pick-to-light

Pick-to-light

Handling, sorting and picking done easily

As a human-machine-interface the Digital-Pick-Devices, DPD, will withstand all rough handling procedures and environments. It is made to be used without compromises. Specialised systems require products and solutions which fit into the use case. Our pick-to-light system is a good example of what a best-fit solution should look like. We will support you with our engineering and consulting expertise from the first ideas to prototypes and final series solutions for global use.The plug-and-play system solution provide the highest flexibilty as well to fit into your MES system requirements.

Sensor technologies

Sensor technologies

Sensors are one of the core elements of intralogistics for precise status information and traceability of the goods flow.

Today, sensor technology is one of the most innovative sectors. We are connecting IO-Link technology with our innovative u-remote or IP65 master modules and provide a base for condition monitoring followed by analytic approaches for predictive maintenance to ensure a high performing application along the life cycle. Did you know, that we are the first to provide condition monitoring data out of our DC power supplies? With this, you are well informend of the DC system performance and provided with optimum reliability. If you want to provide this data to a cloud, we recommend using one of our IoT gateways.
