Pick-to-Light Module: PTF-L-6
70 mm x 50 mm
The Pick-to-Light indicator has a narrow design and does not have a display, but is equipped with a mechanical acknowledgement button and is used in the standard version in the Pick-to-Light system for applications where no quantity display is required. With this compartment display, only the removal compartment is signalled (e.g. single piece in Automotiv).
In the standard version of the L-6, the removal is acknowledged by means of an acknowledgement button. This compartment display can also be used for the C-articles in combination with a central display. In this case, all C-compartments of a shelf block are equipped with this display. Additional employee information can be displayed on an info display. The compartment displays on the shelf can be switched on either sequentially or simultaneously.
In addition, the F key offers the possibility of storing functions (e.g. colour change) in the Pick-to-Light system. The L-6 without sensor can also be used as a target display for sorting processes (pick-to-light), whereby the delivery to the compartment can be acknowledged or monitored either by scanner, acknowledgement button or Pick-Radar .
