AGV with RFID Traffic Control

Description

The Creform Super NSI AGV features a 2,000-lb load capacity, 50-course programming via HMI touchscreen and built-in RFID for traffic control.

Like all Creform AGVs, the Super NSI follows a magnetic tape guidepath.  However, a unique feature of this model allows it to reverse its direction and/or rotate in place in space restricted locations. This unit can travel limited distances off its magnetic tape guidepath and spins either right or left by course programming allowing it to back into space restricted locations and pick up empty carts. The maximum turning rotation is 240 degrees.

Creform’s proprietary traffic management system integrates the supplier’s existing Creform AGVs with the new Super NSI models providing user-friendly traffic control.  During the loading process, special operator control stations at each loop stop allow associates to release an AGV with carts and move to the next station.  In addition, each unit has an additional front pedestal control panel mounted at a comfortable height with frequently used buttons for convenient user interface.

The Super NSI AGVs have a category 2 safety rating with obstacle sensor, non-contact laser bumper, e-stop, audible warning and flashing light.  

The units are powered by (2) 12V high capacity TPPL batteries.  When an AGV moves into an integrated opportunity charging station along the guidepath, it lowers its charging probes to make contact with the conductor plate embedded in the floor, and a verification sensor confirms and the unit is charging.  This feature maintains the battery charge level without human intervention.
