Pickit processor 3.0-a

The Pickit processor 3.0-a is a light and compact unit that fits in a 1U rack mount. Its 12V DC-in power supply is a separate adapter, so it can be optionally mounted on an Autonomous Ground Vehicle (AGV).


Processor ports

The front side of the processor has:

  • 1x power switch. Press once to turn on, press once again to turn off.

  • 1x audio jack for a remote power switch.

  • 2x LED indicators (power and HDD).


The back side of the processor has:

  • 3x RJ-45 ports labeled “Your_PC”, “Robot”, and “LAN”. This article gives the description on how to configure the network settings of your Pickit system.

  • 4x USB ports that can be used to connect Pickit cameras.

  • 1x lock type DC power jack port.


Power input and installation

Apart from the provided power supply, the processor is also compatible with the following options:

  • DIN-Rail power supplies such as this one, for convenient mounting in control panels or electrical cabinets.

  • Direct 12V DC input, so it can be mounted on an Autonomous Ground Vehicle (AGV).

The processor comes with two sets of brackets offering the possibility to installing it on a wall (below left) or mount it in a rack (1U high, below right). The necessary screws are also included.


The power supply connects to the “DC IN” port on the back side of the processor.



In case of a power failure while the processor is on, it will restart automatically when power is restored. Pickit will start with robot mode enabled, that is, ready to receive robot commands.
