SICK Releases Image-Based Reader for Industrial Automation

SICK declared the release of the Lector620, image-based reader, which can be used for one-dimensional and two-dimensional codes. The product is suitable for tracing and tracking applications.

SICK produces automatic detection systems, machine vision equipment, safety devices, and sensors for automation in the logistics and industrial sectors.


The image-based reader, Lector620, features a smart setup with astute functions. The Lector620 also offers the teach-in with an auto-focus feature. Users can adjust settings automatically to achieve the best possible read, even when the scanner is placed away from the code. Users can set up the scanner without using a PC, so it eventually reduces setup time. It operates in a flexible way with many on-board interfaces, such as, CAN, RS232, USB, and Ethernet TCP/IP.

The Lector620 series removes reading challenges, enhances decoding performance and provides real-time image decoding and quick detection capabilities. Users can know whether the code has been read as it offers a visual indication. Integrated illumination can detect both low and high contrast codes. The product comes enclosed in a small, metal housing and has the capability to withstand harsh environments with a rating of IP 65 or IP 67

The Lector620 series is useful for manufacture control and to maintain traceability of components. It can be used in the pharmaceutical and food and beverage industries, consumer goods, packaging, and automotive industry. Detection of single parts, PCBs, and counterfeit comprise the other applications of the Lector620.
