The Pick-by-Scan method of using a scanner or handheld to process picking orders is very popular. The order information is shown on the display. The removal is acknowledged via the built-in scanner and sent to the LUCA-Server sent. Various hardware products are available on the market.
Communication between the scanners and the LUCA-Server is realized via WiFi. Cheaper, wired solutions are also used for fixed workstations. The scanned data is sent to the central LUCA-Server and processed.
The hardware is connected to the LUCA system via stable and standardized interfaces. Communication between the LUCA-Server and the higher-level WMS and HOST systems is customized as required.
The scanners or handhelds with built-in displays are usually very large and not ergonomic. The old "Motorola bones" are still in use in many warehouses today.
Today, we mainly use other smart solutions in modern order picking systems, such as Pick-by-Watch, Voice Picking, etc. The old Pick-by-Scan systems can be brought up to date through retrofit projects.
