Loading/Unloading from same bay

Continuous Loading Plus: Pallet Runner Cart (PRC) continuously loads pallets into the lane as long as there is a pallet to load. This function will continue until the lane is full, operation is stopped by operator or the additional pallet is not in the load position after 20 seconds of the PRC arriving.

Unloading Plus

Continuous Unloading Plus: Unloading plus enables the operator to select a single command once and have pallets move to the front position continuously until the lane is empty or the operator stops the command. If the “Home” position is occupied when the PRC arrives with the next pallet the PRC will wait behind the first pallet until it is removed; at which time it will deposit the next pallet and continue unloading. This all happens without operator intervention, other than the initial selection of the command.
