 ABLEPick pick-to-light user manual 3   ABLEPick Hardware TCP/IP controller  AT500 TCP/IP controller is a data transmission medium between picking control PC and all the picking devices. Which is Ethernet architecture product, following up the standard TCP/IP communication protocol to communicate with the host PC. Each controller has 4 output channels to connect to the picking devices, each channel can connect to maximum 30 devices. So one TCP/IP controller can connect to maximum 120 pcs of picking devices.           Specifications:   - To host computer communication interface :                      IEEE 802.3 Base band (Ethernet)                     RJ-45 Phone-jack connector x 1                     Transmission speed:  10 / 100 Mbps                     Communication protocol : TCP/IP   - Input Voltage and current: AC 115/230 V,  50/60 Hz   - Power supply :  Maximum 320 Watt   - Temperature  :   0 °C to 50 °C operating,  -20 °C to 70 °C storage   - Humidity: 90%  non-condense   - Dimension: Aluminum case 250(L)*130(W)*100(H)mm Pin assignment: RS485 D-type 9 pin female connector pin  Defin. 1  - 2  GND 3  DATA1- 4  RTS- 5  - 6  - 7  - 8  DATA+ 9  RTS+

You can use ATOP’s tool “MONITOR.exe” to know and re-configure each AT500’s IP address.   Connection to TCP/IP controller (AT500) Since AT500 has no DHCP function, so its host control PC/NB need to assign one IP address which have to be within the same domain as the AT500. Then you can create one TCP connection to connect it. AT500’s TCP port is 4660.

 ABLEPick pick-to-light user manual 6     AT707-A-4K-RF is an advanced  picking device which can be able to implement less or no zone boundary within order fulfillment operation for pick-by-light or put-by-light flow, called zoneless picking light. AT707-A-4K-RF’s communication protocol is fully compatible with Atop’s other cableless pick-to-light products.  AT707-A-4K-RF has 4 illuminated buttons with different LED color (RED, GREEN, BLUE and YELLOW), each button could represent an picking order for pick-by-light operation flow or a sorting product item for put-by-light operation flow. In other words, with this design, AT707-A-4K-RF allows multiple orders for pick-by-light or multiple items for put-by-lights be able to working concurrently within the same area.  Each button has 3 data buffers. 2 data with the arrows status is used for picking indication,  the third one is an extra prompt buffer. Once this prompt buffer has been stored message, then this message will auto-show up for 2 seconds next to the previous picking data is confirmed back.  Moreover, AT707-A-4K-RF’s another intelligent feature is the integrated design with RF reader, all the data withdrawal from buffer and confirmation will be implemented by the RF technology to control the accuracy, especially when implementing the multiple orders or multiple items are working concurrently within the same area.      User can appoint one RF tag’s UID code (unique ID) to each button of AT707-A-4K-RF, Then each button could have its corresponding picking data to have linkage with its specific RF tag’s UID during picking operation. In other words, all the pre-sending picking data need to recognize by its corresponding UID tag, then it can be able to trigger to work.
 ABLEPick pick-to-light user manual 7  User use the RF tag by  “finger ring type” to push the confirmation button, when RF reader catch and recognize the tag’s UID code, it will auto-retrieve its corresponding  button’s data from buffer to show on the 7-digit LED display, meantime, its corresponding button’s light could change to different status to distinguish with the other standby buttons and confirmation button also has the same LED color as the small button tell user which color is working on.
 ABLEPick pick-to-light user manual 8   User needs to use the same RF tag to push the confirmation button again to confirm this picking (double hits). Then the small button will be off to mean its picking is completed. And the message on the prompt buffer will be shown up for 2 sec (such as “End”…etc).automatically.   With the RF design, AT707-A-4K-RF allows system software to track each pick back to a specific picker, by this way, each picker’s productivity could be countable accurately. And its Multi-color LED identification increases operating flexibility and productivity by allowing concurrent operating in one area.    AT707-A-4K-RF also uses different beep sound to distinguish different RF reading in different states, such as error reading, no reading, or first data withdrawal and second data confirmation.      Large illuminated confirmation button.   AT707-A-4K-RF’s confirmation button has 6 colors LED design, which are RED, GREEN, AMBER, BLUE, PURPLE and INDIGO individually. The default color is RED. LED’s color can be configured by software, which can be stored in the EEPROM.      Two up/down count buttons   The left side of  AT707-A-4K-RF has two small illuminated buttons, up-count(function key) with WHITE LED, and down-count (shortage) buttons with WHITE LED, too. Push shortage (down-count) button can acknowledge the shortage situation or by adjusting up-count/down-count button to present partial picking process. Both different behaviors could be configured by software.     AT707-A-4K-RF’s power on procedure   Step1: The 7-segment will show “8“ from 1st digit to last digit sequentially(from right to left).   Step2: 6 illuminated buttons include 2 arrows and 4 small buttons will flash once.
 ABLEPick pick-to-light user manual 9 Step3: The confirmation button’s LED light will change color: RED, GREEN , BLUE sequently.  Step4: Show the F/W version of the tag. For example: “U1.0”.  Step5: Show the address ID of the tag. For example: “[001]” (this is a decimal number).  Step6: Show the tag mode configuration of the tag. The default tag mode configuration value is 115. in decimal.      Address configuration via the buttons directly.
