Build2Light Controllers.

Lightning Pick Ethernet Junction Box

Pick-by-light controllers.

Build2Light™ systems rely on a control terminal to control light-directed picking devices and other hardware. The controller and junction box are used for the connection between the control terminal and other devices.

The Build2Light Advantage.

The Ethernet controller is based on the TCP/IP protocol. Therefore, there are no restrictions on the types of terminals or choice of operating system (OS) used. Also, Build2Light’s controller and combined controller/junction box (power supply) options enable true system scalability and easy, cost-effective expansion capabilites.

Easy Installation and Modification.

Both Ethernet controllers easily mount to a variety of rack, shelving, support beams or other media. Connection to an AC85V – 264V power supply and Ethernet supply are the only requirements. While these products are part of the JW Series model family, they also support AW SeriesSW Series or any combination of the three product series.
