This Pick-to-Light displays PTF-6N-1 is a module with numerical display. Compared to the four-digit PTF-4N-1, two additional numeric characters are available here. For the display of high quantities, we ourselves recommend the use of this compartment display in a Pick-to-Light system. Of course, it is possible to use the first or last characters for the information of container units.

This compartment display variant is used in process sequences in which the display of six-digit numeric characters is required. These include large withdrawal quantities, abbreviated article numbers or, if necessary, storage location designations. After the order is activated in the system, the compartment displays light up with the corresponding withdrawal quantities and, if necessary, employee information.

The withdrawal itself is confirmed with the acknowledgement button. The +/- keys can be used to perform shortage correction and inventory. Various individual functions can be triggered via the function key. The displayed information and the sequence on the compartment display are controlled by the LUCA-Server and can be individually designed.
