LUT8 and LUT9 offer cost-effective solution for demanding luminescent mark detection applications

Sick, manufacturer of industrial sensors, safety systems, machine vision, and automatic identification products, announced its LUT8 and LUT9 luminescent sensors. These sensors react to luminescent pigments, which are activated by an ultraviolet (UV) light source in the sensor. The LUT8 and LUT9 sensors provide longer sensing ranges and more selection models than previous versions. LUT9 also offers selectable dual light ports, IO-Link for remote monitoring and 2-point teach-in. Appropriate applications include high accuracy luminescent mark detection in packaging, food and beverage, automotive, lumber, pharmaceutical, print, postal and general manufacturing.

Sick CLV600 Bar Code Scanner
Separately, Sick announced its CLV650 bar code scanners with autofocus technology, and CLV640 bar code scanners with dynamic focus. These augment Sick's CLV600 family of flexible 1D bar code scanners for applications in the material handling and logistics.
