Human Machine Interface

CHAMP:

CHAMP is a PC based, feature rich conveyor control system developed by Tech King Operations. CHAMP's features provide you with an array of benefits including proven standard software components, and off the shelf, user friendly hardware allowing for maximum cost savings and quick installation. CHAMP combines real time control of material handling equipment with many WareHouse Control System (WCS) data handling and interface features. This streamline approach removes the complexity of the control system architecture and eliminates interface points of failure between multiple controllers.

The base components of CHAMP include:

  • Picking, receiving and transportation conveyors
  • Pick and pass system
  • High speed sortation
  • Multiple high speed merge configurations
  • Motion control servo product spacing
  • WMS/Host interface
  • Human Machine Interface (HMI)

The CHAMP PC-Based Controller configuration provides real time equipment control functions by interfacing directly with the system I/O. Additionally, CHAMP provides access to powerful operator and maintenance information through its user friendly interface and graphical overview screens.

CHAMPS user interface screens provide an excellent HMI to the CHAMP controller allowing one to view the following menus:

  • System status
  • Alarms
  • Statistical information
  • Maintenance access to I/O, timers
  • Counters and devices
  • System timing and calibration
  • Carton product data and status

CHAMP

CHAMP is configured with Windows2000 server to allow multiple users full access to screen information. CHAMP can also be configured to interface with a WCS such as Tech King Operations' Smart Moves or directly to the Host/WMS computer to accept sortation assignment downloads and report diverted carton information. Database functions are handled internally by integrating them into the conveyor controller thus data exchange delays are greatly reduced and the potential for failure of another computer or controller is eliminated. CHAMP's installed base has proven it to be a reliable equipment controller with robust interface and a variety of data handling features.
