The Paul Vahle GmbH & Co. KG is now launching the VCL (VAHLE COMPACT LINE) compact conductor system for the global market. The VCL is an all-in-one solution for supplying energy to shuttle systems, automatic small parts warehouses (SPW), storage & retrieval systems (AS/RS) and for compact transfer car applications in small and medium capacity ranges.
"The logistic industry calls for increasingly dynamic storage solutions. We supply the base with Innovative products for safe signal and power supply for this need, such as our new VAHLE COMPACT LINE - VCL for short", says Rüdiger Jour, Product Manager at the VAHLE Group. Due to its modular and compact design, the solution is specially designed for use in shuttle systems, automatic small parts warehouses and pallet AS/RS applications as well as transfer car applications in the small and medium performance range.
" It differs from other systems in particular by its modularity, scalability and easy installation," says Jour. The VCL can be individually configured according to the application, making it a multifunctional solution for the continuous energy supply of logistics applications which ensures maximum system availability. It is available with 2 to 6 poles and fulfills power requirements between 40 amps (galvanized steel conductor) and 100 amps (copper conductor) and voltages from 12 up to 500 volts. Furthermore, the VCL is compatible with the proven VAHLE Multi-Carrier (VMT). The combination of conductor system and multi-carrier creates a low-cost and compact solution for a wide range of warehouse applications with large suspension distances of up to 3.5 meters.
Further advantages: The quick and easy installation by clip technology and the reduced number of components keep the installation costs low. Particularly durable carbon brushes also avoid high maintenance and repair costs, which reduces the total cost of ownership (TCO). Thus, VAHLE offers a cost-effective and scalable solution for demanding applications such as multi-channel e-commerce. The ultra-compact design even allows uncomplicated installation inside a shuttle rail. As with all VAHLE products, safety is the top priority for the VCL: Protection against accidental contact according to IP2x (finger protection and protection against foreign objects) as well as an optional PE protective conductor to guarantee trouble-free and accident-free operation.
