IPTI Inc. has added its Sense-Me hand sensor technology to its Pick-Max2 pick-to-light system. The Sense-Me option monitors the opening of the pick face and validates that the picker has actually entered the proper pick face for each pick, eliminating the need to press a confirmation button after each pick. In essence, it is almost as if the picker simply has to pick and not punch.
The standard Pick-Max2 system combines the pick status indicators with the task complete button for one-glance operation. This approach maximizes capability by 20 to 50 percent while maintaining real-time accountability.
Measuring only five inches wide, the Pick-Max2's face allows higher pick densities, thereby maximizing the investment in storage and floor space with no sacrifice in functionality. The indicator light has five colors, allowing such things as multiple pickers per zone and batch pick. The three-color display permits simple segregation of display pick information.
Each pick module is dynamically assigned a unique serial number, eliminating the need to set dip-switches on every module or manage factory preassigned addresses. The operation saves time and prevents errors caused by duplicated or incorrect numbering.
