Automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) are the heart of automated high-bay warehouses. Increasing throughput volumes and travel speeds place particularly high demands on the energy supply. VAHLE has the right solution.

Reliable energy supply for material management

Automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) are the linchpin of automatic storage and retrieval in high-bay warehouses. They can be single or multi-lane and move in three directions along their longitudinal, transverse or vertical axis. They operate either aisle-bound or serve the entire warehouse via a switch system.

Since automated high-bay warehouses generally operate around the clock, the stacker cranes must be available at all times. Unexpected failures or downtimes have a particularly severe effect at this point.

Increasing throughput volumes, faster travel speeds and the handling of ever heavier loads require a powerful power supply as well as reliable systems for control and positioning. In order to make optimum use of warehouse space, there is regularly only limited space available for power and data transmission.

As the market leader in the AS/RS segment, VAHLE offers an extremely wide range of products. With our compact and low-maintenance solutions, you are always on the safe side.

Your Vision - Our Solution

VAHLE Challenges


  • Increasing throughput volumes require maximum performance
  • Higher travel speeds require greater energy outputs
  • Increasing article variety reduces the available installation space
  • 24/7 availability does not allow long downtimes
  • Use under extreme ambient conditions, e.g. in deep-freeze warehouses down to -30 °C
