Fixed mount barcode scanners

Intelligent scanning solution for logistics and automation

Your Benefits

  • Intelligent auto setup and multi-function pushbuttons save time during commissioning
  • Easily execute firmware updates using the microSD memory card: no need for a PC
  • Enhanced SMART technology reads damaged and partially obscured codes, increasing read rates
  • Increased scanner intelligence enables sophisticated configuration of logical operations, reducing the control system programming effort. Data is then delivered in the desired format
  • Real-time code identification even at very high conveyor speeds
  • Increased scanning reliability due to high-performance computing power and high scanning frequency


Intelligent scanning solution for logistics and automation

The CLV63x product family consists of compact, powerful fixed mount barcode scanners which were designed for a wide range of applications.

The CLV63x combines a high reading performance with the improved SMART code reconstruction system: A reading algorithm that can accurately detect barcodes even if they are damaged or partially covered.

Integrated function buttons and a built-in LED bar graph enable the device to be commissioned quickly, the reading diagnosis to be started easily, and a matchcode to be taught in without a PC. The parameterization of the scanner can be saved externally via a microSD memory card.

A variety of reading distances can be covered by long-, mid- and short-range variants. All variants such as line or grid scanners, side light emission and oscillating mirrors as well as Ethernet versions are available.

At a glance
  • Integrated function buttons, e. g., for starting auto setup or reading quality evaluation
  • Integrated LED bar graph
  • CAN, Ethernet TCP/IP, PROFINET, and EtherNet/IP on board. No additional Ethernet gateway required (for “Ethernet” connection type)
  • Enhanced SMART code reconstruction technology
  • Flexible sorting, filtering, and logical functions
  • Advanced, easy-to-use SOPAS configuration software
  • High scanning frequency of up to 1,200 Hz
  • Advanced remote diagnostics and network monitoring capabilities available over Ethernet

One fixed mount barcode scanner, many applications

The application possibilities for fixed mount barcode scanners are manifold. It’s good when the devices are designed to withstand a wide range of ambient conditions. The CLV63x is reliable even in sub-zero temperatures or in wet environments. With the oval light spot, it can reliably read even challenging codes such as DPM codes.
Withstands fluctuating ambient temperatures Depending on the device variant, the CLV63x is equipped with surface-mounted heating in order to work reliably even in deep-freeze environments down to –35 °C. Thanks to the intelligent controller, the fixed mount barcode scanner can take advantage of cheaper night electricity rates.
Reliable reading of tricky barcodes The oval light spot provides high reading performance where code reading is complex, such as with large distortions, low-contrast printing, fuzzy edges, or direct part marking (DPM) on rough or textured surfaces such as with inkjet printing.
Steadfast in harsh environments Cleaning processes at high temperatures, with high-pressure jets or aggressive cleaning products are part of everyday life in the food industry. The IP69K device variants of the CLV63x with Inox stainless-steel housing, integrated plastic viewing window and Ecolab-certified cables easily withstand these conditions.
Shatterproof HACCP plastic viewing window The HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) standard requires a hazard analysis and identification of critical control points in the food industry. As this also includes components made of glass, the CLV63x is available with a shatterproof plastic viewing window as an option.

SICK LifeTime Services

SICK’s services increase machine and plant productivity, enhance the safety of people all over the world, provide a solid foundation for a sustainable business operation, and protect investment goods. In addition to its usual consulting services, SICK provides direct on-site support during the conceptual design and commissioning phases as well as during operation.

The range of services not only covers aspects like maintenance and inspection, but also includes performance checks as well as upgrades and retrofits. Modular or customized service contracts extend the service life of plants and therefore increase their availability. If faults occur or limit values are exceeded, these are detected at all times by the corresponding sensors and systems.

Consulting and design Application-specific advice on the product, its integration and the application itself.
Commissioning and maintenance Application-optimized and sustainable ─ thanks to professional commissioning and maintenance by a trained SICK service technician.
Service contracts Extended warranty, SICK Remote Service, 24-hour helpdesk, maintenance, availability guarantees and other modular components can be individually combined on request.
