PTL: Pick-to-Light Devices

Banner Engineering, a provider of technology for industrial automation, has released the PTL110 Series of pick-to-light devices that feature optical sensor and touchbutton capabilities that can be used individually or together to confirm standard pick actions plus secondary functions.  

 

The optional alphanumeric display can be used to indicate part count or provide other instructions. An LED indicator features 14 colors and various animation options to clearly differentiate multiple conditions.

 

PTL110 pick-to-light devices feature fast response times thanks to PICK-IQ™ technology, a purpose-built, Modbus-compatible serial bus protocol that uses a Common ID to reduce latency from polling multiple devices. The fast response speed at scale makes these devices ideal for use on production lines and fulfillment stations that require many pick points while maintaining a rapid pace.

 

Each PTL110 device features two M12 connectors for quick and secure installation of multiple devices with no additional cables required. The devices can be fastened to tubes, extrusion, and rail with a variety of brackets or standard cable ties. Devices can be quickly moved and replaced with no tools, rewiring or reprogramming required. 

 

These devices solve a wide variety of applications including pick-to-light assembly, order fulfillment, put-to-light stocking and replenishment, kitting and sequencing. In addition, PTL110 devices can be paired with a wireless controller for mobile and IIoT applications. Watch a video of the PTL110 here.
