Pick-to-Light Module: PTF-12A-1
256 mm x 50 mm
As the predecessor model to the PTF-12M-1 variant, this display module is mainly used in running Pick-to-Light systems as an info display for displaying a storage location, batch or article number and, if necessary, zero crossing control or quantity display.
The twelve-digit display itself is also suitable for displaying further employee information or operator guidance. This variant is used in process sequences in which an alphanumeric display is required. These include, for example, product properties, batch/article numbers and sequence steps. After order activation via a scanner, HOST system or conveyor system, the compartment displays light up with the corresponding removal quantities and, if necessary, employee information.
