Barcode scanner offers fast, automatic identification at speeds of up to 6m/s
21 April 2010
SICK UK has introduced the CLV65X barcode scanner to bring fast, automatic identification to a wide-range of industrial applications. The device is capable of reading at speeds of up to 6m/s and boasts improved decoding and stable reading rates on low contrast, partly destroyed or partially hidden barcodes.
Using time-of-flight technology, the scanner measures the time the laser takes to reach a label and then adapts its focus accordingly, ensuring high performance over long ranges, without the requirement for light switches to change focus positions.
The CLV65X can be adapted according to user requirements; it offers a flexible output format with a number of connection and fieldbus options to enable both network and PLC connections. It is believed to be the smallest scanner with integrated Ethernet, and features a customised output data formation, reducing the programming burden on the PLC. The freely adaptable and conditional host data string means the scanner doesn’t need the PLC to manipulate data. This enables the generation of multiple data strings for CAN-to-Ethernet RS232, ensuring it can communicate with several different hosts.
Easy to mount, with dual position cable entry and an intelligent auto setup, the scanner is exceptionally easy-to-install and set-up. With the ability to run customer specific scripts for unique applications, this plug and play solution is also easy to programme, and features a micro SD slot for seamless configuration and program change.
