Introduction
We design and manufacture our devices with the feedback from the enterprises of the industry and their specific needs in mind. Our pokayoke systems elaborated this way are
robust and due to the sophisticated solutions applied in them, they provide a long maintenance-free lifecycle.
These devices are recommended for those firms where one of the following problems has
emerged and would like to develop a solution:





Frequently occurring errors in production processes;
Products must be called back due to installing parts of wrong type;
High scrap-costs caused by selecting wrong part;
Workers often forget to tighten the screws fixing the part;
Workers forget to install one or more parts and this mistake is noticed too late;
The pokayoke systems of KVL COMP aid the effective troubleshooting of these errors.

CHAPTER 1
OVERVIEW
This guide explains the installation, wiring and setup of the KVL-PTL04 Ethernet network
pickup controller and describes its operation. The installation, wiring and setup of the
product must be accomplished by experienced professionals.
The description of operation provides information for the workers working with the
pokayoke system.
1- 1 S H OR T IN T R OD UCT ION OF POK A Y OK E S Y S T EM S
The meaning of the Japanese words Poka-Yoke in free translation:
 Poka: random, unintentional error, mistake, fault
 Yoke: elimination, prevention
Meaning: mistake-free, error-free work, workstation, technology, process development, in
order to avoid human errors. The aim of pokayoke is the full-scale prevention of product
defects, waste avoidance, minimization of quality control costs, to provide error-free
working conditions and work.
To sum up, pokayoke is a system that assists manufacturing and assembling, that helps
and – simultaneously – controls the workers. Using pokayoke effectively improves waste
avoidance.
The KVL-PTL04 is part of the Ethernet network based pokayoke system developed by KVL
COMP.

POK A Y OK E S Y S T EM
The purpose of this system is to eliminate picking the wrong spare parts due to an employees fault.
It receives the manufactured components’ datas from the control computer (KVL Server).
Pick-up the necessary components showed by the red light of AS-I bus display/ acknowledge lamps above the shelves. Acknowledge of the component pick-up for component
storage bay happens with pull switch manually; for shelves happen manually or automatically. After acknowledgement the display’s lamp is going to change to green.

The light curtains are designed for 300mm, 400mm and 600mm storage boxes.
The lights on the front panel of the light curtain instruct the worker to pick a given part
[1]. If a spare part should be picked, the indicator light is green. After picking the spare
part (acknowledgement) the light turns red.
Acknowledgement is performed automatically. The picking of a spare part is detected by
distance measuring sensors, located behind the front panel of the light curtain [2]. The
measuring range can be changerd between 10 and 60 cm-s with a computer program via
USB connection (see PTL-Manager software description).
The distance between the sensors is 7-8 cm, providing reliable hand detection.
4-3-2 ACKNOWLEDGEMENT MODULE WITH AS-I CONTROLLER KVLPICK007
During assembling a red/green light indicates
which part should be installed.
The display is built with long-life, high-brightness
LEDs, providing clear visibility even from a distance.
Acknowledgement is performed by operating a
pull-switch. The 2 m long pull-string can be cut to
the appropriate length.
The module is mounted to the suspended structure located above the storage boxes.

 THE GREEN LIGHT IS ON, NO AUDIBLE SIGNALS
The device completed the production cycle and sends an IO signal.
 THE RED LIGHT IS ON
An error occurred during the cycle.
 THE YELLOW AND THE RED LIGHTS ARE ON
Communication error occurred.
 THE DEVICE GIVES AN AUDIBLE SIGNAL
In case of control error and wrong pick-up audible signal can be hearing.
4-5 DAILY CHECKS BEFORE WORK
Daily routine check of control cabinet:
Cabinet door is closed:
 Proper ventilation and protection of the inner parts are only provided with closed
cabinet door!
 Touching the inner parts can cause electric shock.
 Via the open door dust can penetrate the cabinet. The accumulating dust decreases cooling efficiency and leads to a higher probability of failure.
AS-I Bus devices:
 Check the correct mounting of devices.
Connectors:
 The shelves are periodically moved for cleaning. This makes necessary to disconnect some AS-I connectors. The affected connectors are marked with red and a
warning message.
If the shelves were moved during cleanup, check that the connectors marked
with red are properly reconnected!
If any device failed the above checks, immediately call maintenance service!

KVL-PTL04
WARNING In the following cases switch off the controlbox, disconnect
network cable and call a service technician immediately:
- The network cable or its connector is damaged or worn.
- Liquids penetrated the controlbox.
- The controlbox was exposed to rain or other forms of water.
- The controlbox fell or its case is damaged.
- The operation of the controlbox is unstable or the controlbox is malfunctioning.
 The controlbox emits unusual noise, smoke or unpleasant smell.
