Add speed and accuracy to low-volume picking processes.
RF Picking offers a cost-effective alternative for applications within an order fulfillment operation with a large number of products and volume that does not justify installation of pick-to-light. LP RF operates on a wide range of scanning terminals, and can be added to a variety of existing, field-deployed terminals.
Pick-to-Light and RF Picking.
Integration with the overall Lightning Pick software suite allows the configuration of some areas for pick-to-light, and others for RF picking. All areas share a common host interface, so that higher-level systems — such as warehouse management systems (WMS), enterprise resource planning (ERP) and other business hosts — view the pick area as a single, unified process. Orders flow freely between the different picking areas.
The Lightning Pick server communicates with LP RF terminals through the facility’s 802.11 network. The terminal displays the intended pick location and other product specific information, such as the product code or item number.
Easy RF Process Configuration.
The system can be configured to require scanning of the product identification code, or product location number, to confirm the pick.
