You have to be able to rely on your barcode scanners to function no matter what. A missed or failed read can create big problems – and with the extreme conditions that come up often in automation environments, the likelihood of that happening increases. So the scanner you choose has to be able to perform, no matter what.
The new CLV600 Series from SICK fits the bill. SICK is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of sensors, safety systems, machine vision, encoders, and automatic identification solutions for factory and logistics automation. That means you know you can trust a SICK product to answer the call when it’s needed.
The CLV600 is specifically designed to perform in high-demand situations. Its IP 69K housing is completely waterproof, meaning that it can be used in wash-down environments with water temperatures all the way up to 80° C. Its stainless-steel housing and plastic front window protect the scanner from harsh chemicals and cleaning agents. And the IP 69K cables protect against moisture and shock.
Many common industrial interfaces are built into the scanner – including CANopen, Ethernet TCP/IP, and PROFINET – so all in all, the CLV600 is prepared for practically anything your production environment can throw at it.
