Pio port overview

Ports are the workstations where the Robots will deliver and pick up bins from the workers. Pio uses the port model called Conveyor 5.1. 

The port uses a conveyor belt to move the bins to the operator. While one bin is being presented to the operator, the second bin is held in place above the port by a robot.

Bins are delivered in the port with the wide side first.

Port control panel

The control panel above the port has a power and a "retry" button, some LEDs to show the status of the port and an emergency stop button.

Weight control

If a bin in the port is too heavy, an alarm will sound and the bin will not be moved to the storage area. 

To stop the alarm and to move the bin to the storage area:

Remove items from the bin until the weight is less than the configured limit.
