Barcode scanners offer focus options

DECEMBER 17, 2009--New CLV650 barcode scanners feature autofocus technology and CLV640 barcode scanners feature dynamic focus.

DECEMBER 17, 2009--New CLV650 barcode scanners feature autofocus technology and CLV640 barcode scanners feature dynamic focus. They are suitable for high-performance barcode reading applications in the material handling and logistics markets. The compact scanners use proprietary SMART (SICK's Modular Advanced Recognition Technology) code reconstruction algorithms and high-performance microprocessors, enabling them to read damaged and dirty bar codes. The CLV650's autofocus feature, distance measurement technology, and optics make it appropriate for use in applications where space is limited and large depth of field is required. The CLV640 is designed to be a cost-effective option for reading high-density codes and providing increased depth of field in applications requiring an external input to change the focus position.

PRESS RELEASE

SICK Launches CLV650 and CLV640 Bar Code Scanners

Minneapolis, Minn.

Powerful, flexible, easy-to-use solutions

SICK (www.sickusa.com), one of the world's leading manufacturers of sensors, safety systems, machine vision, and automatic identification products for factory and logistics automation, today announced the launch of its CLV650 bar code scanners with autofocus technology and the CLV640 bar code scanners with dynamic focus. These new bar code scanners augment SICK's CLV600 family of flexible and easy-to-use 1D bar code scanners.

With a simple setup process, exceptional reading performance and flexible data handling capabilities, these scanners are ideal for high-performance bar code reading applications in the material handling and logistics markets.

The CLV650 and CLV640 are compact bar code scanners that use proprietary SMART (SICK's Modular Advanced Recognition Technology) code reconstruction algorithms and high-performance microprocessors, enabling them to read damaged and dirty bar codes. The CLV650's autofocus feature, distance measurement technology, and expertly engineered optics give it a competitive advantage in applications where space is limited and large depth of field is required. In addition, the CLV640 is a cost-effective option for reading high density codes and for providing increased depth of field in applications requiring an external input to change the focus position.

These bar code scanners feature data handling capabilities to execute a wide variety of
user-configurable logic, output data filtering, and sorting functions. Plus, SICK's easy-to-use SOPAS software helps reduce programming and processing requirements of the host system. An embedded web page can also be configured to provide statistical performance and diagnostic data to remote locations over the Internet using standard browser software.
