Scanning barcode labels has always been a time consuming task for indoor truck and forklift operators needing to drive up beside a pallet to scan the barcode label or get off their vehicle and walk to the label. Now with the Sky-Trax optical barcode reader this task can be eliminated saving many man-hours, read errors and reducing the risk of accidents in the workplace. The Sky-Trax optical barcode reader can be fitted to the front of any forklift or indoor truck to automatically read the label of palletized or bulk materials.
The camera contains a high resolution imaging sensor, high speed processor, memory and lighting with a selection of lenses and optical filters available to operate in any workplace environment. The rugged high quality casing of the barcode reader is sealed against dust and water and comes with an in-built heater for operation within freezers and coolers.
Connecting the Sky-Trax optical camera to any compatible vehicle mounted computer will transfer the labels information which can read two-dimensional Datamatrix barcodes and other symbologies. This information can then either be stored on the mobile computer or wirelessly transmitted to the warehouse management system (WMS) for real-time visibility of stock movements and workplace productivity.
A high intensity infrared LED lighting system allows for label reading in both low lit and sun-exposed environments with extreme temperatures ranges and condensation. This barcode reader can in many cases provide a cost effective alternative to more expensive RFID solutions automate and streamline the data capture process in handling bulk goods.
The award winning indoor vehicle positioning solution can be added to this barcode reader functionality combining both product information and product location at any time within a warehouse including freezer rooms and docks.
