The true measure of performance for any warehouse automation system lies in the conveyor control system used to integrate that system’s disparate components into a cohesive, seamlessly operating intralogistics system.  A combination of control devices and software, conveyor control systems (also known as material handling control systems) provide a critical level of control and feedback that directly affects a system’s ultimate ability to optimize productivity.

Consisting of widespread electrical devices wired to control panels that are networked together and directed by deterministic, software driven processors, Conveyor control systems have been a central focus of the team at Invata since 1987.  As a result, we have extensive experience in the design, development, integration, and implementation of material handling equipment control systems for a wide variety of customers in a wide array of industries.

We are experts in the nuances of conveyor control systems, including panel and field component design, software controls, electrical engineering, and panel fabrication.  Our experience ranges from material handling controls for new, purpose-built, turnkey operations to retrofits and modernizations that extend the life of existing systems and equipment.

The key to an Invata conveyor control system is the efficiency with which it manages the data exchange between computers and machines.  By optimizing data exchange, we ensure that critical information is always available for the real time decisions and resource allocations that drive a true warehouse control system.

There are three main areas of expertise that we draw from in building a complete controls solution for each Invata client.  They are:

Invata’s FastTrak Warehouse Software includes numerous layers of controls designed to meld disparate component machinery, while maximizing the efficiency of data exchange. As the centerpiece of every Invata material handling control system, our FastTrak Software Controls provide the architecture that enables seamless equipment integration and operation.  Read more…

FastTrak Software controls

As experts in developing the most robust and supportable control systems in the industry, Invata electrical engineers are responsible for a variety of crucial system controls including the design of all motor control panels, selection of field devices, programming of PLCs, compliance with safety standards, and the implementation of Invata’s FastTrak real time interface protocols.
