Voodoo Robotics Pick-to-Light devices have batteries that are quick and easy to change. Batteries are accessible from the front of the device, without removal. The devices re-synchronize with the database upon startup, so manufacturers never lose Pick-to-Light device data.
The battery voltage of each device is continuously monitored by the system. The device itself always displays the current battery voltage or a low-battery warning. On the SKU-Keeper server, manufacturers can easily get a list of Pick-to-Light devices and their locations that have battery levels below a cut-off value that is specified.
The Pick-to-Light devices have been designed to maximize battery efficiency. The devices spend most of the time “sleeping.” With typical use, the two AA batteries could last years, depending on how frequently the device is activated.
Voodoo Robotics, the leaders in IIoT Pick-to-Light Solutions, will be exhibiting at MODEX 2018 April 9-12, 2018 in Atlanta, GA at booth B4375.
About Voodoo Robotics
Voodoo Robotics, (https://voodoorobotics.com
) the leading innovator in picking warehouse automation, provides cost-effective technology for warehouse inventory management and order fulfillment solutions. With engineering and robotic expertise, the Texas-based pioneer brings the next wave of state-of-the-art automation to material handling industries.
Voodoo offers a unique lease-based Pick-to-Light system designed to modernize warehouse operations by leveraging the latest IIoT (Industrial Internet-of-Things) technology. The picking hardware integrates effortlessly with existing WMS (Warehouse Management Systems), or ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems allowing distribution centers, warehouses, and 3PLs (third-party logistics) to scale operations, only paying for the lights needed each month. This revolutionary approach to leasing Pick-to-Light devices on a month-to-month, pay-as-you-go basis avoids long-term commitments and costly up-front fees.
A companion product, SKU-Keeper Inventory Management, is designed for warehouses that do not have an existing WMS or ERP system. Emphasizing simplicity and ease-of-use, the cloud software is also leased on a low-cost, low-risk month-to-month basis.
The company also provides smart, ROI (return-on-investment) driven Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS) with an innovative 3D user interface, compatible with Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Safari. The robotic systems are designed, simulated and run, all using a Warehouse Descriptive Language (WDL), a concept invented by the company.
All of Voodoo Robotics products are patented or patent-pending. Currently, the company is attracting best-practice, lean manufacturing focused, systems integrators throughout North America.
