The ‘Low Profile floor ramp’ is fully assembled at FE Technologies. It includes integrated power and data cabling allowing for a streamlined installation process at your facility.

People Counting Options

In Gate People Counters

The stacking cart is a battery powered cart that uses a motor to convert from the vertically angled receiving mode to a shelving trolley mode. The receiving mode of the stacking cart is specially designed to work with high speed sorters without having items sorted to the cart toppling over. The topple free design of the stacking cart makes the Bookmatic stacking cart librarian friendly requiring minimal attention to getting a cart onto the library floor for the reshelving of items.

The stacking cart automatically recharges when attached to the sorter.

Ceiling People Counters

The box stacker allows libraries to simplify the physical loading and unloading of totes on a sorter. This simplification results in less manual handling required to be able to both load and unload totes. Dollies supplied with the box stacker also make the movement of totes easy.

The box stacker enhances the manual handling efficiencies of totes in a library environment and is especially useful on busy central sorters.

Unified Reporting

The FE Technologies Bookmatic electric bin comes in two different sizes that fits the two differnt sized sorting tables of 500mm and 650mm. (The sorting tables can be mixed and matched as required by the library.) The electric bins are battery operated and are recharged while the automatic electric bin is attached to the sorter in receive mode. The bin has two modes – “receive” – where the optical eye automatically lowers the base of the bin as it is filled and -“empty” where the optical eye raises the base of the bin so that the top book is just below the lip of the bin. These automatic functions both protect items by minimizing the length of the fall when it is filling and reduces the effort library staff have to exert emptying the bin as items are always at the top.

The FE Technologies Bookmatic staff induction units are used by library staff to inject books into the sorter. They are high speed devices and come in two forms. The standard is a fixed height staff induction unit and the height adjustable version features a height adjustable induction. The height adjustable unit can be set at the most ergonomic height for different staff members.

Both induction units come with a screen.
