A combined system for warehouse pick and place

Something we have not talked about much here in our series of newsletters is the option to combine our EVS144 code readers with for example the Ideal 125 for fully automated and controlled pick-and-place operations in your warehouse or transfer location.

When your forklift passes an embedded positional floor tag for pick-up, the RFID reader sends positional data to EVS144, which can choose to send on the position to the onboard computer right away or to hold on to the information until a barcode is scanned and at that time send on both positional and item codes as one packet to the onboard computer, and onward to your WMS server for further placement instructions. The floor tag on the placement position can then be read on approach for confirmation of successful delivery.
