The integrated Hanel controller can be switched to one of several modes including a comprehensive integrated Warehouse Management System, with all software embedded in the controller and all modes available at any time at no cost.

All modes have a simple method of software integration providing you with a broad range of options to integrate your own software platform into your new Hänel automated storage environment.
