MP 14 N Controller

High-performance control system with 12-inch touch screen Hänel control technology in new dimensions.

The 12-inch high-resolution touch display supports maximum ease of use, allowing plenty of space to show vast amounts of information. This is ideal for the presentation of user interfaces for various ERP systems – directly at the storage system terminal – possible thanks to the integrated SOAP interface.

The fully integrated warehouse management system (WMS) has also been optimized for the large display and improved in terms of functionality and convenience. The MP 14 N uses the latest browser technology to display critical information.  Integrating the MP 14 N in existing networks is completed quickly, just as it is with the MP 12 N.

There is no need for a classic alphanumeric keyboard with the MP 14 N – texts are entered using the virtual keyboard displayed directly on the touch screen.  When used in conjunction with Hänel PictureControl, the camera feature integrated in the Lean-Lift’, the large display area of the MP 14 N is a great advantage.

Industore Hanelsoft Integrated software

Operating modes:


The Standalone mode includes the core functionality of an integrated WMS, including the management of items, locations and stock quantities.  This functionality can be expanded through supplementary modules and integration with an ERP for order processing.  In this mode, both the software and data reside within the Hänel controller, with no requirement for additional PC hardware.  When multiple Hänel machines are used, these can be connected to allow route-optimized processing of orders and a unified interface.


The Host-Data mode includes the core functionality for order processing and requires integration with an ERP/WMS.  In this mode, the ERP/WMS manages the items, locations and stock quantities, with the Hänel controller used to process orders transferred via an electronic interface.  When multiple Hänel machines are used, these can be connected to allow route-optimized processing of orders and a unified interface.


The Host-Web mode allows the ERP/WMS to control the Hänel machine directly.  In this mode, the ERP/WMS manages the items, locations and stock quantities, with the Hänel controller processing shelf movements transferred via an electronic interface.   When using this mode, information can also be displayed on the controller via the integrated web browser and a bespoke web application.
