The CLV series made by SICK scan barcodes on pallets, containers, luggage, etc. via a laser beam, with exceptional reliability. A swivelling mirror gives this compact device a large range. The corner section can be rotated 180° to reposition the cable sockets, saving space. The arched front of the housing corresponds to the direction in which the mirror swivels, and echoes the design of the rotating corner in the various models of the device family. The die-cast aluminium parts are of very high-quality manufacture. Scanner settings are stored on a smartcard that can quickly be removed and inserted into a replacement device.
