SICK has released the IT 5800 hand-held scanner with a reading speed of up to 270 scans a second, and a range of up to 2.1m.
The scanner is suited to sorting and tracking packages in incoming and outgoing goods areas. It is also useful in quality assurance, during inventories, or at commercial checkout workplaces.
Its range combined with a high level of reading reliability make it suitable for use with stacked pallets in a warehouse, bar codes on cartons in multi-storey shelving, or identification from moving stackers. It survives drops without impaired performance.
