'Pick by Voice' in freezer applications: New headsets also support Voice-controlled picking at frosty temperatures

Easy to use, less bureaucracy, lower training costs and productivity gains of up to 25 per cent: The arguments for using the 'Pick by Voice' technology for Voice-directed picking are powerful. Not without reason, most logistics companies and businesses have turned their backs to the pure paper-based procedure. Due to the 'Pick by Voice' system, employees exchange very simple data using voice commands via the headset with the electronic inventory- and order management. For the Voice-controlled picking system to work in in the frozen food logistics and storage, where they have freezing temperatures down to minus 30 degrees Celsius, Imtradex has upgraded the LogiTalk headset series accordingly. The specialists for hear and talk-systems now offer two new headset models specifically designed for use at high sub-zero temperature.

"Pick by Voice also plays a major role in the frozen food logistics. With our two new headsets - the LogiTalk XSpro and the LogiTalk XSN-pro - we now give companies from this area the right communication solution for voice-guided, paperless picking," said Mathias Iser, Technical Director at Imtradex Hör-/Sprechsysteme GmbH (www.imtradex.com). The two new models fit neatly into the LogiTalk series with their functions and capabilities. For the frozen application, they have a shorter gooseneck microphone made of a special plastic.

This combination gives together with the still existing NC-pattern of the microphone, the best sound quality with no icing - even in very loud cold storage facilities. The speaker protects the user, thanks to Acoustic Shock Protection, against high noise levels, and at the same time the supplied ear cushions, available in various sizes, protect against the cold.

Imtradex has given great importance in the comfort of the new Pick by Voice-appropriate monaural headsets. "Especially ergonomically designed, light in weight yet extremely stable - they do not interfere with the user in performing his duties, but support him optimal to do his work. He always has his hands free and is permanent in contact with the proper electronic storage system" Mathias Iser emphasise the other advantages of the two LogiTalk models for low temperature applications. In addition the LogiTalk XSN-pro, wear very well with cloth caps or helmets, due to the neckband wearing style.

    Very interesting article. Picking at low temperatures presents a variety of challenges and voice provides a nice solution. Voice picking has given many of our customers the productivity boost their operations needed. The hands-free nature of voice really does change the game for a lot of folks.
