Pick Radar ®


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

Das Pick-Radar® wird meistens als Überwachungssystem in Kombination mit anderen Kommissioniersystemen, wie Pick-by-Point®Pick-by-Light oder Pick-by-Voice genutzt. Bei Automotiv (immer 1 Stück) wird direkt mit dem Zugriff die automatische Quittierung der Entnahme ausgelöst. Bei falschen Zugriffen auf die Lagerfächer wird ein Alarm oder Lichtsignal erzeugt. Es werden keine Daten der Mitarbeiter erfasst oder protokolliert.
