Two thirds the size of most 2D code readers, the LECTOR 620 code reader from Sick comes in a compact metal housing that is sealed to IP65 or optionally to IP67. It has a 43 x 67 mm² field of view with a field depth of 50 mm at a 100 mm reading distance. The series offers real-time decoding of all images captured with a frequency of 60 Hz. This improves decoding performance and thus timely detection and elimination of reading problems. Featuring an integrated LED display, the code reader offers an intuitive operation with a laser-based alignment assistance and parameterization at a push of a button. It is also possible to set up various operating levels on the operator interface in parallel with requirements. All of the relevant data interfaces including Ethernet TCP/IP, FTP, Ethernet IP, Profinet, CAN, RS 232/422/485, USB, and digital I/Os are available.

With the April issue, we celebrate the 40th anniversary of IEN Europe. For that occasion we present numerous interesting articles and interviews on technologies that have been groundbreaking over the past decades. An interview with Nexans is on the Evolution of Cables . A technical article by the EMVA on Machine Vision emphasizes the milestones that have been important for the automation industry. A very recent and up-to-date topic, Industry 4.0, is discussed in an Interview with Wibu Systems, a company dedicated to the protection of know-how. IEN Europe April also features a retrospective on Low-voltage Switchgear by Eaton. To celebrate IEN’s 40th anniversary properly, we have a Reader Offer for you, where you can win a high-tech visual IR thermometer. So please celebrate with us and enjoy!
