Auto-Ident devices communicate seamlessly with SICK’s new IDpro platform

01 November 2012

Sick has launched IDpro, a standardised software platform that enables all Sick auto-ident devices to communicate with each other, share data and parameters.

The new platform achieves seamless connectivity between Sick’s laser barcode scanners, 2D/3D vision cameras and RFID interrogators. The benefits are faster communication and virtual elimination of errors in data transfer between devices, enabling factory automation and logistics control networks to operate more efficiently. 

By using the same, powerful SICK IDpro platform for its CLV600 laser scanner devices, its LECTOR620 2D/3D camera and its  RFID interrogator RHF620, SICK can help its customers ensure that all product identification equipment in a manufacturing or logistics environment works smoothly together without interruption. 

The IDpro software delivers full data interchange integration, single device configuration and cloning functionality over CAN networks, and avoids the software, gateway and converter problems that can plague less enabled data scanning portfolios.

Using the three IDpro connector devices with modular connection systems enables integration with standard industrial, Ethernet, Ethernet I  EtherCAT and Profinet networks. This improves return on investment, as no separate gateway and converter units are required.
