There are a number of factors to contemplate when considering upgrading to an electric mobile / movable shelving system.

The first factor is activity:

It’s no secret that the fastest and most convenient way to file and retrieve records is with a stationary open shelf cabinet system. However, if space constraints won’t allow that, then mobilizing your cabinets is the solution. Unfortunately, by mobilizing, you typically sacrifice accessibility for space. A mechanically operated system is an option for low to moderately active systems.

However, a mechanically operated system does require a certain amount of physical effort which is time consuming. Whereas, if you motorize a system or use a movable shelving system, a simple push of a button quickly and effortlessly opens an aisle anywhere in the system.

Photoelectric Safety Sweep for Movable Shelving
The EZ-Roller 8 movable shelving system system also has a photoelectric safety sweep which consists of two components that work together; they are the emitter and the receiver. The emitter is located at one end of the long side of the carriage while the receiver is located at the opposite end of the same carriage. In addition to protecting individuals, the photoelectric safety sweep also protects items that may have been inadvertently left in the aisle. Once the beam of light has been interrupted, the Emergency Stop Loop light is triggered and must be cleared before the system will operate.

Motion Sensors for Movable Shelving
Motion sensors are perfect for sensing a person moving in and out of the aisle. Once the motion sensor has detected a person entering the aisle, the unit is electronically halted.


Motor Current Monitoring System (MCMS)
Another safety feature is the Motor Current Monitoring System or MCMS. The MCMS Logic within the controller monitors any change in current being drawn by the motor. Detection of the change will trigger an immediate stop command to cease carriage movement. Basically, a moving carriage will be stopped when it encounters an obstruction that offers twenty-five pounds of resistance. When you exert the pressure, the carriage will stop and the Emergency Stop will begin flashing.

Additionally, when the weight of items stored on the mobile carriage is either increased or decreased, the change will automatically be detected by the controller and the carriage running and stopping speeds will be instantaneously adjusted to meet the new weight load.


Functionality with Ease of Use

The second factor of a movable shelving system is functionality and ease of use:

Located on the end of each carriage is our easy to understand “Soft Touch” control pad. The control pad is laid out with two oversized “Soft Touch” membranes which open the system. We call it “Soft Touch” because the membrane is activated by the electricity generated by the human body, as opposed to activating the control by some kind of mechanical switch which can wear out over time. A new aisle is created by simply touching either side of the desired new aisle location. The oversized touch areas also allow for “hands-full” operation which reduces access time when you have your hands full of file folders.

Control the Aisle Width
The aisle distance in a Jeter EZ-Roller 8 movable shelving system is controlled by a sensor located within each carriage. These distance sensors utilize advanced photo optic technology to regulate carriage stopping by allowing each carriage to know where it is in relation to the other carriages in the system. This allows all of the carriages to follow each other in a consistently timed manner, even if the carriage loads vary. The distance sensors also control the soft stop action of the carriage. When the sensor detects that it is within 4” of its preprogrammed destination, it signals the control box to slow the motor down before stopping. This soft stopping greatly reduces the wear and tear on motors and extends the useful life of the system.

Safe and Reliable by using a Movable Shelving System

The third factor to contemplate when considering upgrading to an electric mobile / movable shelving system is safety:

The system employs a passive safety system. Every time an aisle opens the system becomes activated and prevents the aisle from opening until the lights are cleared. The red LEDs on the Stop Panels are illuminated on both sides of the opened aisle. Simply touch the illuminated
Panels on both sides of the currently opened aisle and you are ready to open another aisle.
