Data entry
Picking list files can be downloaded to the LAN server or PC from WMS/MIS host. These
files will be read and merged into pick-to-light picking list database.
Control and communication
Pick-to-light software will monitor picking flow and offer real-time information on the
Light up
Different models of picking tags light up to indicate what order, which location and how
many pieces to be picked.
Pick and confirm
The picker picks the quantity as tag shows or modifies the quantity directly from tag, then
push the button to confirm this action.
2 Complete
Completion indicator will light up and buzz after all jobs in a zone are done. Push the
button to confirm this action and move this order to the next available zone.

TCP/IP controller
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.
- 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

ATOPs tool MONITOR.exe to know and re-configure each AT500s 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. AT500s TCP port is 4660.

Federal Communication Commission Interference Statement
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device,
pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable
protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates,
uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the
instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does
cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning
the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one of the
following measures:
- Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
- Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
- Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that
to which the receiver is connected.
- Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
FCC Caution: Any changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for
compliance could void the user's authority to operate this equipment.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two
conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept
any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
ABLEPick pick-to-light user manual
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-RFs communication protocol is fully compatible with
Atops 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-RFs 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 tags 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 tags 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
User use the RF tag by finger ring type to push the confirmation button, when RF
reader catch and recognize the tags UID code, it will auto-retrieve its corresponding
buttons data from buffer to show on the 7-digit LED display, meantime, its corresponding
buttons 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
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
With the RF design, AT707-A-4K-RF allows system software to track each pick back to
a specific picker, by this way, each pickers 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
Large illuminated confirmation button.
AT707-A-4K-RFs confirmation button has 6 colors LED design, which are RED, GREEN,
AMBER, BLUE, PURPLE and INDIGO individually. The default color is RED. LEDs
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.

Step1: The 7-segment will show 8 from 1st digit to last digit sequentially(from right to
Step2: 6 illuminated buttons include 2 arrows and 4 small buttons will flash once.

Step3: The confirmation buttons LED light will change color: RED, GREEN , BLUE
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.
