ANSI MH24.2-Power-Operated Vertical Carousels & Lift Modules
This standard serves to eliminate or minimize the hazards which can arise during installation, start up, operation, maintenance, testing, and dismantling of power-operated vertical carousels and vertical lift modules. Vertical carousels are circulating storage equipment modules with load carriers that can be provided with one or more access openings. Vertical lift modules handle goods such as storage containers placed on load carriers using a built-in lift unit that carry goods from an access opening to storage locations in a racking tower, or from a storage location to an access opening.
