DeviceSpace uses both configuration and business rule frameworks to map and control any high-speed sorter, zone divert sorter, merge, pre-sort, buffer, or any other specialized mechanized equipment, creating a standardized way to monitor and control a conveyor system.
DeviceSpace allows for the mapping of all devices in the warehouse (PLCs, PC-based controllers, Print & Apply, Weigh-in-Motion, Stampers, Scanners, etc.). It controls the functionality of each device individually, allowing for a comprehensive, built in emulation functionality of any warehouse layout. Since the physical attributes of the devices are the same site to site, only the configuration of the mapping of the devices in the facility changes, allowing for easy and quick configuration reuse.
We support all PC, PLC, and Proprietary interfaces types by using our device drivers to translate mechanical commands regardless of the controller type. Customers with mixed environments/sites can leverage their mechanical assets by simply changing the driver and configuration, similar to the way an operating system supports multiple printers.
With DeviceSpace, Dematic Reddwerks extends its philosophy of unifying the distribution center by treating the controls layer like the enterprise layer: Every device, person, order, unit, and ancillary equipment that exists in a distribution center must be considered jointly to optimize holistically.
