Phoenix Contact names KA+O Storage Inventory System 2016 Nanoline Contest winner

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. – A team from Walker Career Center in Indianapolis, Indiana, has won a trip to Orlando, Fla., in Phoenix Contact’s Nanoline Contest. The company announced the winner on Saturday, February 20, to kick off its National Engineers Week celebration.                                            

The students developed a “Kitchen Assistant and Organizer: KA+O” (Pronounced “Kay-Toh”). The purpose of this device is to serve as an accessible and automated food storage and inventory system for areas with limited space. The Nanoline PLC industrial controller is used to manage the inventory, as well as to control the device’s movable parts along with an iPad app that will collect inventory data from the Nano across the Internet.
