Warehouse Distribution System
To solve the challenge of SQL throughput, Enterprise Automation in conjunction with Think and Do developers, developed a custom Extended Function Block (EFB) to handle the SQL transactions. By incorporating the EFB directly into Think and Do, the goal of a single software solution was maintained. To achieve the required update rates of the bar code readers, Sick bar code scanners were combined with an array of Digi PortServers connected via Ethernet to Think and Do. And finally, to meet the challenge of polling the I/O fast enough, Enterprise Automation configured Automation Direct Terminator I/O communicating over high-speed Ethernet, residing in 25 distributed I/O panels.
