The trend toward smaller batch sizes in manufacturing and production processes drove the development of this compact code reader that packs a punch in performance level, according to its maker. It enables manufacturers to maintain short throughput times, in spite of individualized products, and remain competitive in production.

The small and compact image-based code reader measures 30mm x 40mm x 50mm and supplements SICK’s Lector series of code readers for detecting 1D, 2D, and stacked codes. It can be used primarily for the intralogistics, automotive, consumer goods, and electronics and solar markets.

The Lector61x traces components, especially in the sensitive and miniaturized electronics and solar industry for identification of electronic components, devices, and printed circuit boards. In addition, for the consumer goods industry, it can be effective for date code inspection, serialization, and package content monitoring, according to SICK.
