Stations are the locations where carriers enter and exit the network. These stations range from simple, open end tubes up to complex, full-automatic stations with preload and integrated pneumatic brake.
Stations exist in all kind of varieties. They range from simple open-end tubing up to complex, preloadable full-automatic stations with built-in pneumatic braking.
Some stations were specially designed for specific applications, such as the automatic vertical station. This has been developped to be integrated into the small available space from a toll booth; yet it offers full automatic opening and closing, loading, departure and pneumatic brake on arrival.
The user interface contains buttons, indicators, keyboard and displays. These devices can either be integrated or in a separate unit next to the station.
Audio-visual arrival indicators remotely signal the container arrivals.
