Leuze electronic has launched a hand-held Scanner for all operating ranges. With new mobile code readers, the company offers solutions tailored to cover all desired reading ranges. The IT 145x mobile 1D code reader, for example, is an economical but powerful industrial standard device in the lower range of up to 360 mm (figure). These so-called area imager scanners ideally complement the Leuze electronic midrange devices and are used above all in order picking. Whenever especially long operating ranges are important and flexible 1D/2D mixed operation can occur, e.g., in warehouses or in pallet handling, the IT1280 and IT198x industrial full-range scanners are the first choice. Their automatic focusing ensures that a single device can optimally cover both the close as well as the distant range – enormous read ranges of up to 16 m are possible. Available as interfaces are RS 232, PS2, USB and Bluetooth. The fieldbus and Ethernet connection can easily be implemented with the MA 200i modular connection unit.
