Image-based code reader for 1D, 2D codes

Sick Lector620 image-based code reader equips engineers to track, traceability applications in a range of industries.

06/06/2011


SicSick’s Lector620 image-based code readerk Lector620 image-based reader for 1D and 2D codes is designed for track and traceability applications. The Lector620 offers intelligent setup and intuitive operation, including teach-in with auto-focus. This allows customers to mount the scanner at any distance from the code and automatically optimize settings for the best possible read. There is also no need to use a PC to set up the scanner. Multiple on-board interfaces, such as Ethernet TCP/IP, CAN, USB, and RS-232 ensure flexible use.

It reportedly comes in a compact, metal housing with an enclosure rating of either IP65 or IP67 for harsh conditions, including dusty and humid environments. Integrated illumination (red, blue, green) provides a solution for high or low contrast codes and a visual indication that the code has been read. The Lector620 series offers real-time decoding of all images, improving decoding performance and enabling fast detection and elimination of reading problems, the company said.

Applications include individual production control and traceability of components in the automotive, packaging, food and beverage, consumer goods, and pharmaceutical industries. Additional applications are counterfeit detection and identification of single components and PCBs.
