For security, the LCD touchscreens offer a way for each carriage on a mobile system to be programmed by a specific lock code, and can also be combined with PIN code or swipe card identification and audit tracking functions. In addition to increased security, the technology can also streamline the use of a mobile system for a wide audience with its modern, intuitive, and easy to use features.

The LCD touchscreens come standard on powered mobile storage systems, and are also available on motorized pallet racking and other high density warehouse storage systems. The touchscreens are 4.3" and display imaged with great clarity and rich color, along with providing many additional benefits and features.
