Modules with Special Versions
Pick-by-Light modules with special versions expand the possibilities for efficient control and optimization of picking processes.
PTF TOF Module for E-Kanban Systems
TOF eKanben module for electronic replenishment eKanban combines level detection with a put-to-light system.
The TOF module solution enables precise monitoring of material replenishment with only one sensor per flow rack channel instead for each bin storage position as in many other systems.
The container fill level is continuously monitored contact-free by a powerful distance measuring sensor. As soon as only a specified minimum number of bins is left on the shelf, the sensor reports this to the refill controller of the higherlevel
The combination with a put-to-light module with a bright eye-catching lamp supports a fast and safe replenishment process. With a few exceptions, the module can be combined with all PTF shelf displays.

For the greatest possible flexibility in application, the sensor can be offered in addition to the general
■ E-Kanban variant (Fig. 1)
also in the following variants:
■ FLEX version with mechanically adjustable sensor module (Fig. 2)
■ Version integrated directly into the shelf display (Fig. 3)
■ Wired version, (e.g. for racks where the separate attachment of sensor and shelf display is necessary.)
✓ automatic demand notification in real time ✓ Support of refilling processes of e.g. assembly and production stations
The TOF application is also conceivable for other uses, such as measuring pallet stocks.
To adapt the module to your requirements, you can test it in productive use. Please contact us – our sales team will be happy to advise you.
PTF-Sentinel Intervention Monitoring
PTF-Sentinel intervention monitoring
(to the article)
PTF-Sentinel is a newly developed intervention sensor for safe removal monitoring during order picking, e.g. in parts provision.
State-of-the-art ToF laser sensors detect with 50 measurements per second whether an authorised or incorrect intervention (e.g. a removal or deposit) is taking place in a container. In this way, employees can be immediately alerted acoustically or visually in the event of incorrect handling.
Sensitivity and detection range of the Sentinel sensor technology are individually configurable and enable reliable intervention measurement from front, top and side. In addition, it is ensured that movements outside the defined intervention area are not detected.
PTF-Sentinel can be integrated into almost all pick-by-light modules. This means that, in addition to the intervention monitoring function, the user also has the proven compartment display features such as the divided, multi-coloured eye-catching lamp, numerical display indication and other functions at his disposal.
H 8 x W 34 x D 16 mm
■ Error detection ■ Automatic, contactless picking confirmation
■ Count-down mode for intervention detection in case of individual or quantity acknowledgement
LED Pointer for compartment illumination
NEW „Point-to-Pick“ Feature
The «point-to-pick» feature provides a new pick by light display option for additional compartment illumination.
An LED spot light additionally illuminates the shelf or removal compartment.
3 possible spot effects:
The spot can either turn on simultaneously with the eye-catching lamp, or flash for visual reinforcement or alternate with the eye-catching lamp.

The pointer module can be mounted below (DOWN version) or above the shelf display (UP version) and thus complements the eye-catching lamp by even clearer identification of the removal compartment.

With few exceptions the LED pointer option is available for almost all PTF shelf displays.

Module dimension: H 14 x W 48 x D 12 mm
Ideal e.g. in put to light systems such as sorting shelves or picking carts.
√ safer and √ faster picking or depositioning by preventing picking errors
