145 mm x 50 mm
The EP-2 compartment display is equipped with an "Electronic Paper Display". In addition to the option of displaying multi-line text or numbers, the main feature is the display of barcodes and QR codes. The quick updating of the displayed information is particularly advantageous. The use in a Pick-to-Light system is rare.
The EP-1 compartment display has a graphic, black and white EP display, which offers the option of displaying barcodes and QR codes. As standard, it has an oval eye-catching light divided horizontally into two halves, which can display seven possible colors per half (e.g. for simultaneous operation of two order pickers or as a directional function). The four available buttons, which are available in different variants or even button versions such as long-stroke buttons or buttons under the front foil, can be used for acknowledgement or other functions in the Pick to Light system.

The put-to-light method clearly defines the distribution of goods to the target compartments. A classic example of this is replenishment in a flow rack.
