Cloud Display Device
What is a Cloud Display Device?
A simple call causes the associated Cloud Display Device to light up with multiple lines of custom text – in any language using Western text. Text size scales to fit the display. Assign different colors to different pickers or different priorities. Integration with your WMS/ERP is simple. In fact, the system even works with Excel or Google Sheets!
Cloud Display Devices can be used in all sorts of ways: pick-to-light, put-to-light, picking carts, order sortation, quarantine, kitting, will-call, and more!
Barcodes can be used both for item SKUs and for acknowledging individual picks–at the same time! Ask us how.
Batteries Can Last for Years
With typical use, two AAA alkaline batteries could last years. Devices spend most of the time “sleeping”, so battery life depends on how frequently you activate the device, the button brightness, the tune played, and whether or not the device flashes.
You can predict the battery life with this simple battery life estimator.
Note: It’s likely your numbers will differ from these estimates. The above calculations are just averages and make several assumptions that may not be true in your specific use case. For example, these numbers assume that batteries are used entirely and not replaced early as we recommend.
Monitor Uptime and Voltage
It is easy to monitor the uptime and current voltage of all devices. Battery voltage for each device is sampled at least once per day, and the data is readily available with a browser on your cell phone or desktop from anywhere in the world! You’ll know exactly which batteries need replacing (and their locations), long before they die.
(Of course, the voltage level is also visible on the device at all times in the display.)
Battery Changes are Easy
Battery changes are quick and easy. Two AAA batteries are accessible from the bottom of the device using a sliding door. Don’t worry, you’ll never lose Pick-to-Light device data because the devices re-synchronize with the database upon startup.
