The omnibus patent application covers software and design of VirTeca’s Distributed Controls, which drastically cut integration time.
Oct. 25, 2022 - VirTeca, an Atlanta-based material handling solutions provider, takes a dramatic step forward in the industry by announcing the patent-pending application of their VirSatile Distributed Controls.
The omnibus patent application covers the software and design of VirTeca’s Distributed Controls - a modular and scalable controls and software solution that makes implementation and expansion of warehouse, logistics and material handling systems as easy as “plug and play”.
Operating as a series of compact, segmented control panels connected to and managing corresponding equipment, VirSatile Distributed Controls architecture and software make integrating cohesive systems simple and fast. This is because they’re designed and configured to know their individual jobs and to seamlessly communicate with one another.
“Traditionally, you’d have a centralized controller/computer operating the entire system. Any changes or expansion requires new field wiring, modifications in the panel, and then software changes and testing. The change is measured in material expense, resources invested, project risk and lost production time,” said VirTeca President, Gene Sanders. “With our solution, you can have as many or as few controlled elements in a system as you’d like, simple configuration, and the ability to easily make changes in the future. This flexibility applies not only to the primary controls functionality but also to the safety circuit. The system becomes truly scalable and modular.”
While the VirSatile Distributed Controls are applicable on their own in a wide range of applications, systems and industries, their tremendous value rises even more substantially when combined with VirTeca’s products, which are all designed to be equally as scalable.
VirTeca is committed to delivering the next generation of material handling solutions through the creative application of technology and product development. They offer a range of dynamic products including advanced controls, revolutionary software, multi-directional rapid sorting equipment, safe and adjustable conveyors, self-informed package organization tools, automated gates, panels and more. They also offer comprehensive integration services and detailed system documentation that includes meticulous schematics, clearly labeled visuals and standardized step-by-step instructions for assembly, installation, operation and maintenance.
