SICK’s ICR620 “Lector” image-based reader for 1D and 2D codes is designed for track and traceability applications. It 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, reducing setup time. Multiple on-board interfaces, such as Ethernet TCP/IP, CAN, USB, and RS232 ensure flexible use.
It also comes in a compact, metal housing with an enclosure rating of either IP 65 or IP 67 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 ICR620 series offers real-time decoding of all images, improving decoding performance and enabling fast detection and elimination of reading problems.
