DPI1 – Picking Controller
Connectivity to other environments is possible with the DPI1 interface. This powerful controller allows the communication of the DPDs and the management software of the picking via ethernet.
Communications. The DPI1 has an Ethernet port with a LAN8720 100Base-T chip and two network status indicators. It provides two channels that support 250 DPDs/channel with a maximum of 500 DPDs in total. The interface is easy to install, can be inserted into a DIN-5 rail and connected to standard DPDs via standard network cables.
IP Configuration. It is possible to manually reset TCP/IP addresses using the built-in keyboard.
Backup configuration. The module has a slot for inserting a SIM card. This card is used to make a backup of the configuration data of the installation.
Screen. The screen allows you to do Ethernet and diagnostic configuration operations.
Web Server. It is used for configuration, maintenance and diagnostic tasks. Using a browser, you can do the following tasks:
- Configuration: Reassign the network ID, configure nodes language, configure IP parameters of the interface …
- Global test: Display the map of the connected nodes, check errors and test the entire installation.
- Individual test: This utility allows you to view a particular DPD and check if all its functions, buttons and output peripherals are working properly.
Digital outputs. The DPI1 has three configurable digital outputs to show the active piciking, pending picking and installation alarms.
