With their IDM series, Sick have introduced two new, ergonomic hand-held bar code scanners in user-friendly designs. While the IDM120 has been designed for contact and close-range detection, the IDM140 is suitable for longer reading distances of up to 350 mm.
Both bar code readers offer simple parameterisation for their particular application – either via configuration codes or using soft-ware.
The IDM120 offers a scanning rate of 200 scans per second. Various code sizes and code qualities can be reliably detected, considerably reducing the manual effort required for typing numbers in lo-cations such as a shop counter or office workplace. The trigger buttons on both sides of the IDM120 make it equally suitable for left- and right-handers.
The IDM140 hand-held scanner also offers low aiming effort and high target reliability. This has been made possible by the device’s linear imaging image-capture module that generates a bright and clearly detectable scanning line on the bar code.
The IDM140 has a large depth-of-focus range and can be used for reading distances of up to 350 mm. Rugged and user-friendly design, simple align-ment, and rapid read feedback achieved through a high-speed scanning rate of 500 scans/second ensure flexible and speedy work with the IDM140. With PS/2, USB and RS-232, a variety of inter-faces common in office automation, production or storage and logistics are available, depending on the area of use.
