Build2Light Common Devices.

Lightning Pick pick-to-light message display pick parts instruction

Modular, universal components customize your system.

A high percentage of all Build2Light™ systems frequently utilize three primary products:

  • Alphanumeric displays
  • Barcode reader interfaces
  • Sensor interface module

All three devices are wholly interoperable through Lightning Pick’s proven pick-to-light devices hardware system architecture platform.

Lightning Pick JW Series Alphanumeric Message Display

Alphanumeric Message Display.

The JW2414 10-character alphanumeric message display provides advanced communication with operators by displaying job numbers, process steps, iteration status, basic instructions and more. Like all devices in the JW Series, it’s a duct-based product that only mounts to flat surfaces.

Pick-to-Light for manufacturing bar-code reader

Barcode Reader Interface.

All Build2Light systems use basic radio-frequency (RF) scanners to read barcode labeled bills of materials (BOMs) or recipes contained in the database in order to launch the associated light-directed process. RF equipment is integrated with the JW2821 barcode reader interface. Part of the JW Series family, the reader utilizes a duct-based mounting system.

Pick-to-light system receiver unit

Sensor Interface Module.

The AW2902 is a single-point digital input/output (I/O) interface that supports light curtain or light matrix sensor units. Part of the AW Series of light devices, this sensor interface can be mounted to both flat and curved media surfaces.
