With the modern Pick-by-Tablet method, robust and mobile tablets are used. Both the connection to the local WiFi network and the use of other Bluetooth devices is possible without any problems. Scanners, RFID readers and small printers can be integrated. The tablets are usually mounted on order picking trolleys or forklifts and controlled from the LUCA-Server controlled. They also successfully replace the old forklift terminals.
How robust does Pick-by-Tablet need to be?
Tablet in use with the picking systems. We use various hardware models for our Pick-by-Tablet solutions. Exactly which devices are best suited depends heavily on the application. Not every application needs the expensive and robust version. Sometimes the tablets are simply fixed to the picking trolley or forklift and are not exposed to mechanical stresses. If the devices have to be carried, they need to be very robust. In this case, every impact must be well absorbed. We adapt the hardware optimally to the application.
Our software is reduced to a minimum on the tablet. The process logic is mapped on the LUCA-Server . In this case, the tablet only displays information and passes on user input. On the other hand, the complex process sequences and database access only take place via the LUCA-Server. The tablet software also supports the connection of various input devices such as scanners, label printers, etc.
