Small + omnidirectional = ideal: a compact scanner for 1D and 2D codes
Waldkirch, April 2007 – With the ICR803 – the latest product in the ICR series based on camera technology – SICK is presenting an omnidirectional code reader in a particularly compact housing. The device is predestined for applications in which objects must be identified in any alignment but there is only limited mounting space for the reading device.

Whether a bar code, a 2D code, OCR plain writing or pure image capture – the ICR803 can detect and evaluate the most varied of labels omnidirectionally, i.e. in any orientation. LED illumination, the latest imaging technology and a choice of USB or RS-232 interface – everything that the device needs for reading is already integrated in the housing of just 49 x 40 x 25 mm³. No external decoder, illumination or interface adapter is required. The ICR803 is extremely reliable in operation, because the code reader – designed for stationary use – contains no moving parts that can fail, become misaligned or age. This makes the ICR803 the ideal identification solution for, among others, analysers and small automatic systems, or handling and robot systems.
