In this article you will learn how to control Bossard SmartLabels via ELAM.
In order for Smart Labels to be controlled via ELAM Solutions, the Smart Labels must be set up for you in ARIMS. A Smart Work Assistant is not required for communication with the SmartLabels. Communication runs via central APIs hosted in the cloud.
In order for the SmartLabels to be controlled later via ELAM Solutions, each SmartLabel must be created as a tool in the administration. Each SmartLabel has a unique label ID. You must specify the label ID manually when setting up the tool in ELAM Administration.
How to create SmartLabels in the administration:
Go to the Tools Overview page in the Administration and create a new tool.
Each SmartLabel that is created as a tool must be assigned to a component so that it can be activated. Because only one component can be selected in the flowchart during the SmartLabel step, the SmartLabel LED is activated via the assigned component.
How to assign SmartLabels to parts:
A SmartLabel is activated via ELAM using a manually set timer (seconds). The LED lights up immediately when the step is activated in the flowchart and stops lighting automatically when the timer has expired.
How to configure a SmartLabel step in the flowchart:
Note: In the Assistant, the operator will see also the Component ID / Name and withdrawal quantity.
Explanation of the SmartLabel specific fields:
If you want to test whether the SmartLabel LED is activated, you have to start the flowchart via the variant in the Assistant. Read also this article how to assign flowcharts to variants.
How to activate the SmartLabel LED:
Click on the Assistant in the menu
3. Go to the SmartLabel step
The SmartLabel LED lights up immediately when the step is activated. The LED will automatically stop lighting when the time is up.
