Pick-to-Light System Components

Everything You Need to Boost Order Fulfillment Accuracy and Productivity

Pick-to-Light System

  • PICK-TO-LIGHT DEVICE

    Controlled through a simple URL, the pick lights display two lines of custom text – for example, a pickers name, the SKU, and quantity to pick.  They can even play a custom tune for each order picker.

  • Turbo

    Install one or more SKU-Turbo’s on the ceiling, the wall or the side of your racks to extend radio range and decrease pick-to-light response times. Like SKU-Stations, these devices connect pick-to-light devices to the Internet.

  • Mobile Turbo

    Mobile Turbos are similar to the regular Turbo, but run on a rechargeable battery pack and connect to the internet through WiFi only.  They are an alternative for very large warehouses that have relatively few Cloud Display Devices.  Mobile Turbos are a great option for picking carts.
  • SKU-Station (Kiosk)

    Free up your picker’s hands with a dedicated SKU-Station for interaction with the SKU-Keeper website and/or your ERP or WMS cloud software. Like Turbo’s, these kiosks connect pick-to-light devices to the Internet, but they also allow interaction with the SKU-Keeper control system.

  • Optional SKU-Keeper Software

    Find inventory in a flash, check on orders, pick/restock items or run sophisticated custom reports with the SKU-Keeper inventory management software. Pick-to-light system users can use as little or as much of the cloud software as they need to support their order fulfillment operation.

Pick-to-Light Devices

Our Pick-to-Light System is more than a picking solution.  A simple URL call causes the devices to light up with two lines of custom text.  

Our Pick-to-Light devices can be installed almost anywhere and easily integrate with your current ERP or WMS (or our SKU-Keeper inventory management software). The devices use Turbos or SKU-Stations to connect to the Internet.

They are ideal for picking carts, flow-through racks, put walls, will-call areas and more

Turbo

Turbos connect Pick-to-Light devices to the cloud.

PTL devices cannot connect to the cloud by themselves – they need the help of a Turbo or SKU-Station. The Turbo is the simplest way for the devices to connect to the cloud.

In large warehouses or ones that span multiple rooms, you might need additional Turbos. In busy systems, where multiple requests overlap, adding extra Turbos will decrease response times, making the system faster.

  • WIFI/Ethernet Connection

    A WiFi or Ethernet connection can be used to connect the Turbo to the Internet, facilitating communication between the cloud and the Pick-to-Light devices.

  • 75-Foot Range

    Turbos can communicate with Pick-to-Light devices within about 75 feet.

  • Speed

    More Turbos will increase the speed, causing devices to light-up faster.

  • Extended Range

    Use multiple Turbos to extend the range of devices in your warehouse. Turbos are designed for overlapping coverage areas.

Mobile Turbo

Cloud Display Devices cannot connect to the cloud by themselves – they need the help of a Turbo, Mobile Turbo or SKU-Station. The Mobile Turbo is similar to the regular Turbo but runs on a rechargeable battery pack.  It connects to the Internet through WiFi only (no Ethernet).
Deploying Turbos in all parts of the warehouse can be an expensive undertaking.  Mobile Turbos are an alternative for very large warehouses that have relatively few Cloud Display Devices.
  • WIFI/Ethernet Connection

    A WiFi connection is used to connect the Mobile Turbo to the Internet, facilitating communication between the cloud and the Cloud Display Devices.

  • 25-Foot Range

    25-Foot Range–Mobile Turbos can communicate with any Cloud Display Devices within about 25 feet.

  • Speed
    Mobile Turbos work with each other and with regular Turbos to increase communication speed with devices.
  • Mobile
    Mobile Turbos can be worn on a belt or mounted to a cart, mule or forklift.
  • Mounting
    Mounting options include screws, velcro, double-sided tape, or a carabiner.
  • Batteries
    A Mobile Turbo battery pack lasts approximately 24 hours before needing to be recharged.
Mobile Turbos are a great option for picking carts.

SKU-Station

The SKU-Station is a kiosk for your warehouse or manufacturing floor. SKU-Stations facilitate communication with the Pick-to-Light devices and allow employees to interact with your ERP or WMS (web-only) or the SKU-Keeper inventory management system.

SKU-Stations can be customized with a touch screen and can be self-standing or rack mounted.

  • WIFI/Ethernet Connection

    A WiFi or Ethernet connection can be use to connect the SKU-Station to the Internet.

  • 75-Foot Range

    SKU-Keepers can communicate with Pick-to-Light devices within about 75 feet.

  • Controlled System

    Prevent access to non WMS/ERP web pages.

The SKU-Station consists of a monitor and keyboard with integrated CPU.

Cost: $200 One-Time Activation and $200 Monthly Lease Fee

Our optional SKU-Keeper software was designed to leverage the Pick-to-Light devices and is extremely flexible.

Software Integration

Our Pick-to-Light system uses the ultimate standard – a simple web URL.

The Pick-to-Light devices easily integrate with your existing ERP or WMS. A simple URL request, sent to our server on the Amazon Cloud, causes the associated Pick-to-Light device to light up with two lines of custom text.

For example, the device can display the picker’s name, SKU and quantity to pick, or it could indicate into which bin the picked inventory should be placed.

Here are some ideas:

  • Light up the device with the picker’s name, quantity, and SKU to pick.
  • Indicate the bin or tote where a picked item should be placed.
  • Display special handling or packing instructions.
  • Indicate who has been assigned to this pick-cart or forklift.
  • Indicate what area of the warehouse a picker with a cart should begin picking.
  • Indicate that all items for an order have been sorted, and the order is ready for packaging.

It’s so easy that you can even use Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets to generate URL’s and light up the devices!
