The Solid-State output interfaces to a system controller, which is pre-programmed for a specific sequemce of tasks. Mounted in or near each bin in an assembler's work station, the sensor job light signals the assembler
Which bins contain items to be picked in a given operation; and
In what order they should be picked
As the assembler takes a part in sequence, the sensor senses that the part was removed and it sends an output signal to the controller. The controller then verifies if the correct part was taken and may respond by turning that job light OFF, activating the job light of the next bin in the sequence.
If multiple parts are to be removed from one bin, the job light may remain ON until the appropriate number of signals is returned to the controller. If an incorrect part is selected, the control system may be wired to signal an alarm for the assembler and/or a supervisor, or it may be programmed to interpret the action as a call for parts.
