SICK UK, the leading international sensor and sensing systems manufacturer, has launched the CLV65X barcode scanner to bring fast, automatic identification to a wide-range of industrial applications.
The CLV65X SMART scanner has an exceptionally quick read rate, up to 6 m/sec, and boasts improved decoding and stable reading rates on low contrast, partly destroyed or partially hidden barcodes. This high reliability makes it ideal for use in a number of industries, including automotive, materials handling, logistics, electronics, pharmaceutical, packaging and food and beverage, as well as in forklift applications.
Using Time of Flight Technology (TOFT) the intuitive 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.
The CLV65X is the smallest scanner with integrated Ethernet. In addition, it features a customised output data formation, reducing the programming required in 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.
The innovative design of the CLV65X ensures dependable diagnostics via email, with no additional Ethernet gateway required, reducing down-time and enabling significant savings in terms of both time and cost
Tim Stokes, Barcode Product Manager, SICK (UK), commented: "The CLV650 really is an exceptionally innovative scanner, not only is it powerful, fast and flexible but it’s also incredibly easy to use.
"The number of applications, and industries, that can benefit from this unique solution really are limitless."
