Pick by light (CAPTRON)

Fatigue-free and efficient order picking

The entire picking process is made ergonomic and particularly safe by the pick-by-light buttons with large round pick display. The buttons, which can be used to display quantities and acknowledge processes via the integrated touch button, guide employees intuitively and significantly more productively through the picking process.  

All functions of the pick display and LED ring can be conveniently adapted to the requirements of production and warehouse. The buttons communicate the inventory volume fully automatically via a controller called the SENSORhub. The intelligent self-diagnosis function secures the system against failures and thus eliminates the need for regular maintenance.



Modern logistics processes are complex: When individual lot sizes are picked for the next step in a distribution or fullfilment center, the inflow and outflow of large quantities of goods must be documented reliably, quickly and easily.

  • Fast ROI: Lower error rate, shorter throughput times and thus improved delivery capability
  • Reliable hardware: Shock and vibration resistant, water- and dust-proof (IK08 and IP69K complies with Nema 6P)
  • Display and touch button combined: Large display for showing different quantities and individual text messages with integrated touch button
  • Activated via touch: High ease of use, no pressure required
  • Durable service life: More than 100 million switching cycles (transistor output)
  • High degree of individualization: Display (colors, symbols) and functionality adaptable according to customer needs
  • Many features: Multi-pick functions for up to 7 employees at the same time, multi-storage assignments through 4 clearly segmented LEDs, simple and safe through capacitive technology
  • Certifications: UL certified according to IEC-62368-1:2014
