Elko installs industrial wireless network that revolutionizes the day-to-day work of employees in the warehouse

Three times faster performance thanks to wireless networks

March 29, 2010

"It is faster." It is easier. "And now the work is more motivating than before," said one of the workers who pick up goods from the shelves in the warehouse of the manufacturer of electronic Elko. The task of transferring goods from the shelf to the forklift has been simplified for staff which classifies goods in Elko. Now they have to do a follow up of the goods to be collected, or where and when they do it. The workers are given these directions through a PDA which bring with them.

Elko has acquired this wireless technology provider Goodtech Products, Prosoft Technology's representative at Norway.

A computer calculates the most efficient sequence for the way in which workers have to pick up the goods on the shelves. On the goods to select messages are sent continuously to the PDA that carry workers.

Stacks of paper containing the lists of goods to pick up have been replaced by messages simple and updated from a computer. The warehouse workers now collected three times more freight throughout the day than before the introduction of this system. And it is an industrial wireless network - transmission of information of the computer system to the PDA-that makes all this possible.

A powerful network produces signals

Elko store contains large amount of steel and cement. Corners and beams. And long distances. Signals of a traditional wireless network, such as those typically found in Norwegian homes, do not have sufficient scope here. And if the signals fail to function, providers do not receive their goods and Elko loses money. The company depends on wireless signals that cover installations through a reliable wireless network, regardless of the conditions of work.

Elko has opted to acquire this wireless technology provider Goodtech Products, Prosoft Technology's representative at Norway. Around of 20 powerful boxes hanging beams in the ceiling in the production plant and a warehouse. They transmit wireless signals in the presence of any obstacle. They are industrial routers that can tolerate heavy use and are very durable. Elko recently had to replace one of these boxes, but this was due to that a fork-lift truck of 4 tons he collided with it.
