Pick-to-Light Applications


A Put to Light system uses light modules to direct operators to the correct location to put items into (As opposed to a Pick-to-Light system, where lights direct operators to locations to pick items from)

The system uses the same hardware as Pick-to-Light.


Put to Light is a sorting method to break down batch picked products into smaller individual orders. The solution is perfect for ecommerce order fulfilment and distribution.

Light modules are often used on picking carts, put-walls and other sorting solutions. The operator will scan a barcode on individual items and the lights will indicate where the item needs to be placed.

Put to Light devices have a multicoloured confirmation button. This allows for several operators in the same area.


  • Quick and accurate order sorting
  • Intuitive to use, meaning short employee training times
