Pick to Light - Stand Alone


The system  is simple and user-friendly and have been developed for Pick-to-light and Tool Control. It has a simple 'teach-in' function to get started quickly and it can be controlled using a barcode scanner or a link to external equipment. Programming does not require any major prior knowledge and assistance can be built up using Binar's standard components for production support systems.

"It could happen that the wrong component is fitted, which results in flow disruptions and requires resources for it to be rectified."

The LP204 pick-to-light system is based on an extremely simple and user-friendly concept. You begin by identifying a product variant by scanning the barcode ('pick code') that accompanies the product. The system then activates pick-to-light sensors for the items that are to be picked. When the operator picks an item, the LP115 picking sensor issues automatic acknowledgement. The system can also control a second assembly step, such as a torque wrench. When all the steps in the work process have been completed correctly, the system issues a 'ready' signal, which means that it is ready to receive the next unit.


While working, the operator receives support from the LP204 process interface, where the display and LED indicators provide ongoing status information and instructions.


The system can handle up to 64 different pick codes and can indicate up to 32 different variants.




"It could happen that the wrong component is fitted, which results in flow disruptions and requires resources for it to be rectified. It was the operators who suggested pick-to-light to assure the quality.


"Binar's LP 204 system is a superb solution that we can program and maintain ourselves. We are extremely satisfied."

LP204 - System overview

The main LP204 unit is mounted on a pillar in the operator's working area. The system is controlled using a barcode scanner. The picking sensors are fitted in front of each item that is to be picked and they are connected to an LP315 I/O box. The cabling has a connection that makes installation extremely easy. No external software or PCs are required to get the system up and running. The manual contains barcodes for configuration.


The operator scans recipe codes and the lamp sensors are activated. When the items are picked, the sensors are acknowledged and the main unit LP204 has a green lamp that indicates OK. The system can be locked into, for example, a takt system, fittings and peripheral equipment in order to prevent incorrect use. It is possible to pass on a 'ready' signal to external systems. The system also handles 'ready' signals from tighteners and torque wrenches. The working cycle can be divided into nine sequence stages, combined with picking and tool monitoring.

The system is extremely simple to set up and commission. It is also very easy to change, expand, remove, transfer or reuse in new areas where it needs to be quality-assured.




LP204 - System codes

The LP204 system is extremely easy to work with – it is completely independent and requires no special software or hardware configuration. A sheet with a small number of system barcodes is all that is required to make all the settings.
