SICK introduces the new Lector61x. The small image-based code reader measures just 30 x40 x50 mm and supplements the Lector series for detecting 1D, 2D and stacked codes. Thanks to the compact housing with conducted plug unit, it can be optimally installed into production lines with limited space. The Lector61x is characterized by excellent read properties for very small codes, poor code quality and short reading distances.
The Lector61x can even read codes which are not visible to the human eye. Using a clever decoder algorithm, its high-performance DPM decoder can read even lasered or dot-peened codes perfectly – even in the case of low contrast levels, contamination, or poor code quality. The flexible lighting concept with eight LEDs and two colors can be controlled and enables reliable code identification, regardless of the surface or code color. The new infinitely-adjustable focus setting with distance LED and LED aiming device enables quick and easy commissioning.
