The ICR849-2L FlexLens image based code reader available from SICK , is a four megapixel code reader offers the utmost flexibility in practical use for the pharmaceutical, logistics and automotive industries.
The ICR849-2L FlexLens image based code reader delivers convincing performance due to superb reading characteristics. This is achieved thanks to the integrated four megapixel CMOS imager, which allows, for example, a resolution of 0.35mm in a field of view measuring 300mm x 300mm. In this way, one can reliably detect a code the size of a pinhead on an area greater than A4 format. In addition, C-mount interchangeable lenses permit flexible adaption of the code reader to the respective reading situation. Apart from that, the image processing sets new standards. With its dynamic parameter switching the integrated decoder ensures, with only one setting, reliable decoding of low-contrast or directly marked codes in any orientation.
In terms of both mechanics and control technology, the ICR849-2L FlexLens image based code reader meets all the requirements of the industry compatible integration. The metal housing with IP65 enclosure rating is very easy to mount, configuration of the device is simple to save time and money in live image and auto setup, and the M12 Ethernet connection technology offers fast image and data transmission for many user industries.
Additionally, these four megapixel image based code readers are equipped with a serial interface. Via CAN, one is able to connect several devices to form one network – practical when requiring multi-sided reading. By way of external connection modules, fieldbus environments such as PROFINET, PROFIBUS, and DeviceNet are also open to the ICR849-2L FlexLens.
Due to its performance characteristics, the FlexLens image based code reader is the ideal solution for various tasks in logistics automation, particularly goods identification in automated medicine storage systems where the device supports both uninterrupted re-traceability and effective protection from product piracy with respect to medicines.
