  • Publication number: 20190239640
    Abstract: An automated system structure is disclosed which may be quickly and efficiently assembled using a number of storage modules. Storage modules may be comprised of a pair of shelf modules, each comprising a number of defined storage locations for storing totes, cartons, trays or other containers. The shelf modules may themselves be modular units comprising a number of horizontal storage levels affixed to a pair of vertical support assemblies at each end of the shelf modules. The pair of shelf modules may be accurately spaced from each other by mounting the shelf modules to tie beams at the bottom and tie plates at the top.

  • Patent number: 4377806
    Abstract: A parallel to serial converter is described for recording channel applications, wherein a coded symbol comprising a plural number of bits is to be rotated or converted to a serial stream. The converter includes a variable delay section which accepts the parallel code inputs on a plurality of lines and delays each input bit a predetermined number of counts, depending upon which line it is input on. The delay unit supplies a selector array of gates with bit signals, and the selector array reorders the bits into the desired serial stream. An output register is provided to reclock the serial stream prior to further channel processing.
