The new TOF module from KBS puts an end to complex sensor stress: it combines level detection and Put-to-Light system in a single module!
With just ONE sensor per flow rack channel, the TOF module reduces the number of sensors and eliminates cable routing, mounting and adjustment problems within the flow rack channel.
An optical measuring device in the TOF module measures the distance to the last bin in the flow rack channel. By means of simple to use software, the minimum level, refill order quantities, replenishment request intervals, etc. can be parameterised simply and electronic replenishment requests thus generated. The system can be used with all common small load carrier sizes and rack types.
Due to the optical measuring method, all the advantages of non-contact level detection and electronic replenishment requests are available, without having to mount a sensor for each bin storage position. Bothersome cable routing inside the channel is eliminated, as are battery problems, interference-prone radio links or error-prone mechanical influences of the shipping containers in the channel.
The sensor of the TOF module is adjustable and only needs to be aligned once during the installation.
The combination with a Put-to-Light module supports the replenishment process: as a Put-to-Light system with a bright eye-catching lamp, it is faster, more reliable and less susceptible to errors.
Integration in the « PickTerm Flexible » Pick-by-Light system from KBS also enables retrofitting in existing Pick-by-Light systems and guarantees the user the quality that comes from decades of experience in intralogistics.
With a few exceptions, the TOF module can be combined with all PTF shelf displays and is particularly suitable for non-contact level detection with eKanban electronic replenishment request in combination with a Put-to-Light system for refill control.
The advantages at a glance:
■ Only one sensor per flow rack channel for exact level monitoring.
■ Maximum flexibility thanks to adjustable sensor.
This enables an individual angular alignment, depending on the requirements.
■ No annoying factors such as cable routing, battery or radio problems.
■ Integrated level detection and Put-to-Light refill support in one module.
■ Simple to mount.
■ Combinable with almost all PTF compartment displays.
■ Customer-specific adaptations possible.
■ The simplest way to your eKanban system.
In addition to the TOF module shown, also a version integrated directly into the compartment display is available. The sensor beam is then adjusted via the mounting angle of the compartment display.
