Visual monitoring on stacker cranes and conveyor lines with the new LCAM 308 IP camera

The efficient flow of goods and high system availability are key criteria for the operation of logistics centers. Here, the traceability of events also plays a crucial role in enabling faults to be rectified quickly and efficiently.

Using the new industry-standard LCAM 308 IP camera, visual checks can be performed on an stacker crane in the event of a fault. The camera operates autonomously and records the last 60 seconds prior to a fault in a ring memory. If necessary, a live stream can also be started. Moreover, a snapshot mode is also available to capture a single image, e.g. for recording the content of a carton.

Advantages for you

  • Monitoring of hidden areas
  • Storage in the ring memory of the camera after the trigger
  • Up to 60 seconds prior to the trigger are recorded
  • Transfer and display via standard browsers and standard streaming tools: no extra software required
  • High image quality and storage of the live stream in the camera
  • Floods of data are avoided – only the situation in the relevant time period before and after an event is analyzed
  • Robust for industrial use: Metal housing with degree of protection IP 65
  • Easy integration via 24V voltage supply and M12 connections
  • Universal mounting options via dovetail, threaded holes and an extensive selection of mounting accessories

Applications

Visual checks on a stacker crane in the event of a fault

Requirement:

At a logistics center, a stacker crane is used to store and retrieve pallets in the high-bay warehouse. System availability is to be maximized. In the event of a fault at the stacker crane, the cause is to be determined quickly, efficiently and by means of remote diagnosis.

Solution:

Using the new industry-standard LCAM 308 IP camera, visual checks can be performed on an stacker crane in the event of a fault. The camera operates autonomously and records the last 60 seconds prior to a fault in a ring memory. If necessary, a live stream can also be started.

Documentation of carton contents using snapshot mode

Requirement:

At the logistics center of an e-commerce trader, the carton content is to be documented at the end of the order picking process. In the case of complaints, it can then be checked whether the merchandise in the carton was complete when it left the logistics center.

Solution:

With the new LCAM 308 IP camera, the snapshot mode is used to capture a single image to document the content of a carton.
