The Encompass Scale Controller is an innovative case-by-case picking system that helps avoid costly picking errors. The Bluetooth Adaptor communicates with the voice-pick system and weighs the pallet with each pick. As the picker places product on the pallet, the controller generates a weight variance signal if the sensorially perceived weight is inconsistent with the weight entered into the system for that product. This signal will alert the picker through their wearable device (iPod) and will not allow them to move on until the mis-pick is corrected.
How Does it Work?
Picked products are placed onto a forklift or walkie rider fitted with iForks made by RAVAS which are hardwired to a 9-pin Scale Bluetooth Adapter. This piece of Encompass-produced hardware collects and converts weight information from the smart scales and wirelessly transmits it to the Encompass app on a device. During the picking process, a picker will be directed by headset to pick a certain number of cases of product. The weights of products are pre-programmed into Encompass, making truckload planning easy and accurate.
