Pick-to-Light Module: PTF-3N-2
110 mm x 50 mm
In addition to the standard functions, this PTF-3N-4 compartment display has a display with a three-digit numerical quantity display. The vertical design is itself particularly suitable for vertical installations when removing goods from large load carriers or pallet storage locations. It can be combined with other components in a Pick-to-Light system and used depending on the process sequence (quantity indication required) and the physical conditions in the system.
The maximum number of units that can be displayed is 999. Of course, there is the possibility to indicate container quantities by prefixing characters, such as U (as in outer packaging).

The term is often used incorrectly and thus often confused with Pick-to-Light . The pick-to-light method is a Multi-Order-Picking method that focuses on distributing articles that have just been picked to different orders. The method is classically used with a picking trolley (Pick-by-Cart).
The Put-to-Light method clearly defines a distribution of goods to the target compartments. A classic example is the replenishment in a flow rack.
