Intelligrated debuts multicolor pick-to-light

By DC Velocity Staff

At the NA 2010 Show in Cleveland, Intelligrated Inc. introduced new multicolor pick-to-light hardware. Called Multicolored Real Time Solutions Trak3, the system uses multicolor indicator lights to enable four order fillers to work in the same pick zone. The lights can also be used to help workers fill multiple orders simultaneously or direct operators to perform value-added services.

Trak 3's energy-efficient LED displays are easy-to-read and simple to install and require minimal training. Intelligrated also updated the system's workload status screens to make it easier for supervisors to assess the status of wok in a zone view worker performance.

In addition, the automated material handling solutions company also announced an upgraded version of its Real Time Solutions Order Fulfillment software. As part of the upgrade, Intelligrated released mobile applications for the iPhone and other browser-based smart phones. The new applications provide DC supervisors with quick access to productivity and labor monitoring screens from their mobile phones.

Finally, the company also unveiled its new Radio-Frequency (RF) Assist application that allows operators to handle hot orders or exceptions using RF or voice-directed hardware without interfering with pick-to-light operations.
