Press release date: January 21, 2013
Minneapolis, Minn., – SICK ( www.sickusa.com ), one of the world’s leading manufacturers of sensors, safety systems, encoders, machine vision, and automatic identification products for factory and logistics automation, today announced the launch of the new IDM160 Hand-held Scanner for warehouse and distribution centers.
The IDM 1xx family of general purpose and industrial, corded and cordless, hand-held scanners, now includes the new IDM160 in addition to the IDM120, 140 and WLAN 1D. The IDM120, 140, 160 and WLAN hand-held scanners are engineered specifically for SICK. All IDM hand-helds reliably read all popular 1D and PDF 417 bar codes.
IDM160 Hand-held Scanners
The IDM 160 is an industrial corded 1D hand-held scanner line. It has 3 “good read” indicators: a beeper, a green LED, and vibration. It can read codes down to 3 mil resolution and up to 800 mm distance (for 20 mil codes). A laser aimer makes it easy for the operator to locate the code. Its rugged housing allows up to 50 drops from 2 m and has an ingress protection of IP 65, making it ideal for heavy-duty warehouse and industrial environments.
IDM160-BT Hand-held Scanners
The IDM 160-2BT is an industrial, cordless, 1D hand-held scanner line. Bluetooth communication between the scanner and wall-mount cradle allows a maximum range of 30 m, allowing the user to move around freely without cable interference. The cradle can communicate with a maximum of 7 scanners - ideal for production lines where space is limited. It also has batch scanning capabilities, whereby it can store up to 20,000 EAN codes when outside of Bluetooth radio range. A beeper, a green LED, and vibration provide feedback when a code is read. It can withstand 50 drops from a 2 m height, and has an IP 65 rating, making it ideal for heavy-duty warehouse and industrial environments.
