WinWare's Battery-Powered Accu-Drawer RFID Modular Drawer System manages indirect material at point-of-use
WinWare Inc. introduces the Battery-Powered Accu-Drawer RFID Modular Drawer System used to manage tooling, spare parts or any indirect material at point-of-use in tightly controlled and FOD critical environments.
With fully charged batteries, the Battery-Powered Accu-Drawer will provide over 24 hours of continuous operation, and the CribMaster software allows for disconnected network functionality. The network appliance housed in the Accu-Drawer provides greater benefits by drawing less power than the traditional PC, and there are no moving parts where the transactional data is stored. This mobile, secured point-of-use dispensing device can be placed in proximity of the work area, which maximizes productivity and yields operational efficiencies.
Just as in the original Accu-Drawer, the Wireless Battery-Powered Accu-Drawer consists of a heavy duty modular drawer cabinet internally equipped with four RFID Antennae. When a user walks up to the Accu-Drawer, he or she must identify themselves prior to the drawer being released. They can do this by using the touch screen monitor located on the top of the cabinet or with a bar-code or proximity badge scan. Once the drawer is released, the user opens the door to find inventory sitting in a defined location. Either the inventory is tagged or the bin location is monitored by the RFID switch. The user removes the inventory and shuts the drawer. The inventory is automatically adjusted and is properly accounted. On the touch screen, an “Items Out” icon appears, indicating that one or more items are missing from the cabinet and there is potential FOD in the area. If items are missing, anyone can simply touch the “Items Out” icon on the touch screen, and the information is provided as to what is missing, who took it, when and where it is being used.
The CribMaster software that drives the Battery-Powered Accu-Drawer provides all the functionality needed to manage any type of indirect material.
