Pick Radar The access to the storage compartments is monitored by a rotating laser (Class 1). The system ensures the quality of picking or sorting and helps with automatic confirmations of withdrawals. In the event of an access error, the LUCA-Server triggered and logged an alarm.
The Pick-Radar Principle
Pick-Radar alone is not actually a picking system. This is about access control. A laser head from the (no Pick Radarradar wave) rotates 50 times per second and measures the distance and angle to the objects. The measurement data is directly transferred to the LUCA-Server or LUCA device gateway. The working area is defined by a configuration during commissioning. Individual function surfaces are configured on the work surface. In the process on the LUCA-Server(picking or sorting), the corresponding function areas are activated. If access is made to one of the active functional areas, the process is notified and a reaction triggered.
The following functional areas are defined and freely configured (colors from the graphic):
- Access (GREEN)
- Prohibited (RED)
- Acknowledgement (BLUE)
- Work surface (frame)
The maximum size of the working area is approx. 20 metres.
Use of monitoring
The Pick-Radar® is mostly used as a monitoring system in combination with other picking systems such as Pick-by-Point®, Pick-by-Light or Pick-by-Voice. With automotive (always 1 piece) the automatic acknowledgement of the withdrawal is triggered directly with the access. In the event of incorrect access to the storage compartments, an alarm or light signal is generated. No employee data is recorded or logged.
