The Pick by Light system consists of the following components:
Control computer with an interface to the higher-level system (host, WMS, etc.)
Line controller (the quantity depends on the system size)
One pick face per storage location
A pick face consists of the display and control unit. This provides the employee with information about the quantity. The employee can acknowledge the completed picking procedure via the illuminated acknowledgment button. Two quantity correction buttons enable the employee to correct the removal quantity during the packing process in accordance with the actual quantity available.
The Pick by Light system can be easily integrated into existing or planned picking processes and strategies. The system is especially designed for use in shelving and carton live storage systems and pallet racking.
