SICK Inc.Request Info
The CLV503 and CLV505 miniature bar-code scanners from Sick Inc. are barely larger than a USB plug and easily can be installed where space is limited. The CLV500 series also is easy to configure via its online tool and configuration bar codes. The scanners offer good decoding performance, with a large depth of field that allows for flexibility in code size and target placement. The ultracompact series instruments are suitable for use in applications in the OEM and machine builder marketplaces, such as packaging systems, circuit board processing and robotic inspection. Because of its high scanning frequency of 1000 Hz, the CLV505 is suitable for conveyor speeds of up to 5 m/s, depending upon the application. One of the smallest 1-D bar-code scanners available, it fits in extremely small spaces and also is available in a raster version. The CLV503, with a scanning frequency of 100 Hz, is suitable for use in slow-moving applications.

bar-code scanner
An optical scanning device designed to read information printed in the form of bars of different size by detection and processing of the varying reflectivity of light in the bar code.
depth of field
The distance, on either side of the object plane focused on, through which satisfactory image definition can be obtained. For the special case of an imaging system with lens axis perpindicular to the image plane, focused at a range of 25 ft, and with definition acceptable for objects from 20 to 40 ft; the depth of field extends from 5 feet in front of, to 15 feet behind, the object plane focused on.
1. A device used to trace out an object and build up an image. One of the most common of these types is video scanning. The scanning takes place inside the television tube as electrons, guided by electron optics, sweep linearly across a tube face coated on the inside with a phosphorescent material. A scanner can convert a paper drawing or photograph into pixels on a display screen. Scanners are also used to relay information in optical data processing. 2. A device that automatically measures or...
