MINNEAPOLIS, July 22, 2010 — The CLV503 and CLV505 miniature bar-code scanners from Sick Inc. are barely larger than a USB plug and can easily be installed where space is limited. The CLV500 series is also 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 marketplace, such as packaging systems, circuit board processing and robotic inspection. Due to 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.
Both models perform fast and reliable decoding, even on poorly printed or partly damaged codes. They have a push-button trigger and are available in an RS-232 version with flying leads and in a USB version. The flying lead model has discreet trigger input, and “good read” and “no read” outputs.
The push-button trigger, onboard LED and audible beep simplify setup and troubleshooting.
The scanners also offer fast and easy commissioning using an online tool, eliminating the need for new software.
