Raymond Launches Next-Generation Real-Time Location System

25 Jun 2021 | BY SUPPLYCHAINBRAIN

Raymond, a provider of material handling products and intelligent intralogistics solutions, has introduced the next-generation iWAREHOUSE RTLS, a real-time location system. This operator assist technology is the newest addition to Raymond’s end-to-endless intralogistics solutions. iW.RTLS reinforces facility rules and supports proper lift truck operation by slowing a Raymond lift truck down or bringing it to a controlled stop within a facility’s defined zones. iW.RTLS is a patented technology that uses ultrawideband to determine positions of tags on lift trucks and pedestrian badges and is accurate to within approximately 3 feet, based on the tag’s relative position to the anchors in fixed locations around the warehouse.

Using geofencing and zoning capabilities, iW.RTLS helps keep lift trucks, operators and pedestrians in the right place at the right time. Zones can be created around pedestrian areas or busy intersections and will notify lift truck operators that they are in predetermined zones with objects of concern. Zones can also be created around facility environments, such as creating keep-in / keep-out zones to notify operators of height-restricted areas, freezer areas, very narrow aisles and indoor and outdoor areas.

Working in conjunction with the iWAREHOUSE telematics solution, this technology equips facility managers with increased visibility across an entire operation. Benefits include the ability to identify high-traffic areas of congestion for enhanced route optimization, summarized zone violations to reinforce operator training, visualization of impacts, locations of locked out equipment, location of frequent idle time and the ability to reduce unproductive hours by increasing operating efficiency and accuracy.

“Raymond’s culture of innovation and continuous improvement encourages team members to solve inefficiencies and challenges in material handling processes,” said Erica Moyer, Product Manager, RTLS, ObjectSense and Pick2Pallet, The Raymond Corporation. “We listened to our customers talk about their operational challenges and designed iW.RTLS to offer an easier, more effective way to manage an operation’s fleet and personnel throughout a facility.”
