Products - Sort Control

The PC-based Direct ConneX System Commander runs on a Windows Server platform and receives conveyor status from its integrated PLC control system. In addition, it receives container routing destinations from the host (WMS/ERP or Locator), which allows the System Commander to route the containers on the conveyors to the appropriate destinations. As containers are scanned and weighed, the System Commander updates the information and communicates the results back to the host.
