For storage, Put to Light system is used and for retrieval, pick by light system is used. They consist of a light or lamp mounted at the face of every storage location. No matter what kind of racks/shelves you have installed in your warehouse, the PTL system seamlessly fits with any storage arrangement.

There is a control unit and a display unit in this system. The control unit is managed by a software with integrated network. The software manages all the SKUs and lights up the respective rack compartments to be picked. The LED display shows how many items need to be picked up.
