FasThink: P2Light for touchless picking
P2Light wireless is an innovative material picking system that uses light buttons to steer operators to locations in the material picking process. P2Light touchless is a unique smart evolution which, thanks to two-way RF communication, simplifies system integration without wiring costs. It is particularly suited to application in logistics, e-commerce and the automotive and manufacturing sectors where fast and precise material picking is essential for maximum production process efficiency.
P2Light touchless is an incredible next step towards the future of logistics thanks to a system that guarantees top performance in warehouse picking and the assembly of production kits. The new touchless version means material extraction and picking validation occur simultaneously, with no need for an operator to press buttons, avoiding contact with a keyboard or handheld devices. Rapid, intuitive and sustainable, no hard copies are required and this is another step towards dematerialisation, accelerating the transition to fully sustainable digital solutions.
The device has touchless photocell detection, a Master antenna with a range of 70 metres and wireless management of up to 400 light buttons. E-ink graphic display, high-performance LEDs and additional functions such as battery monitoring (which can thus last up to five years) make P2Light a low-consumption device that can operate for a long time. Zero errors in the kit preparation phase and downtimes ensuing from manual errors make P2Light touchless an ideal system, also guaranteeing maximum flexibility for any variations in the positioning of light buttons with no structural changes.
