After selecting the product, the software controls the Pick-2-Light sensors in the correct sequence and monitors the correct sequence of the assembly or picking. You can create and manage any number of assembly instructions or picking orders (parts lists, sequences, work instructions). With our Pick-2-Light software, our CAN Bus P2L sensors and a CAN Bus-USB adapter you get a complete intelligent assembly control system.
