Pick-to-Light Solutions Kit

April 2021 Sensors & Transducers

Turck Banner’s Pick-to-Light Solutions Kit is an integrated solution that consists of an enclosure, a DXM controller, an HMI, plus direct connections for PTL110 devices and power. The integrated device and power decrease installation costs, improve picking sequences and ensure flexible pick functionality. The combination of pick-to-light devices and the Pick-to-Light Solutions Kit help manufacturers reduce the risk of error during an assembly process, boosting product quality and reducing labour costs.

Fast, scalable solution to maximise productivity

The Pick-to-Light Solutions Kit is powered by Pick-IQ, a purpose-built serial bus protocol that maintains high speeds even in networks with high device count. Direct connection between the box and Pick-IQ devices provides the ideal solution for production lines and stations that require many pick points while maintaining a rapid pace to achieve productivity targets.

Pick-IQ devices optimise application performance with options including an optical sensor, touch button and display. Combined with additional accessories and sensor devices, the Pick-to-Light Solutions Kit visually guides operators to pick the correct parts, in the right quantities and in the proper sequence. This reduces errors and defects and increases productivity by eliminating common sources of wasted time, like checking and rechecking assembly instructions.

The kit is an easy-to-add solution in industries that require highly visible indications, such as automobile assembly. In addition to having all the components necessary for time-saving installation, it improves safety, productivity and quality in a wide variety of applications including: Pick-to-light assembly, order fulfilment, pick-to-light stocking, kitting, sequencing.
