SICK reveals compact code scanner series

26 April 2011

SICK has launched the Lector 620 code scanner range for reliable 1D, stacked and 2D code identification, traceability and anti-counterfeiting in a compact housing, two-thirds smaller than most 2D code readers

Tim Stokes, barcode product manager, SICK (UK), said: “The Lector 620 sets a new standard in barcode and direct part marking (DPM) scanner design. The innovative solution, which has been developed in response to customer demand, combines industry-leading technology, into a compact, easy-to-use design.”

SICK has developed four versions of the new scanner to meet all market demands. The ‘Eco’ is the foundation model, while the ‘Standard’ device is deployed for rapid implementation of universal applications. The ‘High Speed’ model was developed for activity such as packaging and document handling and the ‘DPM’ is used for directly applied markings.

The Lector is easy-to-use with parameterisation achieved at the push of a button, while the laser-based alignment assistance reduces training and installation time. The LED illumination also ensures quick analysis of the read-rate performance.

Using intelligent decoding algorithms, the new Lector series offers real-time, reliable decoding of all images captured with a frequency of 60Hz, improving read-rates and through-put, as well as timely detection and elimination of read problems.

The Lector 620 combines a compact size with a significant field of view, covering 43 x 67mm², a depth of field of 50mm and a 100mm reading distance.

There is a diverse range of IT integration opportunities including, Serial, Ethernet, PROFINET, PROFIBUS and CAN. Commissioning can be carried out without PC via auto setup.
