This is the basis of the LUCA systems with a mature basic concept and professional software development. Our software is installed on a customer server platform and maintained via VPN.


The Professional IT-Concept for LUCA-Solutions

Stable, Flexible, Innovative and Cost-Effective


What's the matter with you?

For many years, LUCA has used many different technologies to build its picking systems. In order to standardize the development and make it future-proof, a common platform for all these technologies had to be created. The modular structure of the LUCA server with very fast interprocess communication and various monitoring and protocol mechanisms guarantee the capabilities.

The goal

The large number of different technologies supported by LUCA requires a stable basic concept. In order to achieve this, we have set ourselves several goals for the LUCA-Server is set. The most important was the standardization of the interface between the various technologies (e.g. Pick-by-Light, Pick-by-Voice, Pick-by-Frame®, Pick-by-Point®, etc.). The interfaces to the individual plant components and systems are connected via special coupling modules to the LUCA-Server connected. From there, the data flow is regulated and can be monitored via online monitoring. Our systems are used in a productive environment. For this reason, very high availability must be guaranteed. The core and individual communication channels and processes can be centrally monitored via the control station functions. The modular design guarantees flexibility for extensions. In order to guarantee reliable operation, various mechanisms for hotline support are integrated.
