With the modern Pick-by-Tablet method, the robust and mobile tablets are used. Both the connection into the local WiFi network, as well as the use of additional Bluetooth devices is possible without any problems. Scanners, RFID readers and small printers can be integrated. The tablets are usually mounted on picking carts or forklifts and are controlled by 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 for this depends heavily on the application. Not every application needs the expensive and robust design. Sometimes the tablets are simply permanently mounted on the picking cart or forklift and are not exposed to mechanical stress. If the devices have to be carried, they should then be built very robustly. In that 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 handles the display of information and the transfer of user input. On the other hand, the complex process flows and database accesses only take place via the LUCA-Server. The tablet software also supports the connection of various input devices, such as scanners, label printers, etc. The tablet software can also be used for the process logic.
