Image-based code readers

Perfect sight - in any light

Your Benefits

  • Intelligent decoding algorithms for high throughput, even with highly reflective or contaminated codes
  • Variable illumination concept and optical accessories ensure reliable reading even in changing light conditions and on reflective surfaces
  • Automated setup wizard makes commissioning faster and more cost-effective
  • Short downtime when devices are replaced thanks to parameter backup on MicroSD card
  • Programming is quick and easy since read results can be transmitted to the control system in the desired format
  • Stable reading performance even at –35 °C thanks to
    cold storage device variants


Perfect sight - in any light

The Lector62x is a compact image-based code reader for the reliable detection of 1D, 2D, and stacked codes as well as plain text. Its high-performance DPM decoder can read even lasered or dot-peened codes perfectly – even in the case of low contrast levels, contamination, or poor code quality. Thanks to the powerful illumination concept with bi-color LEDs, the Lector62x is particularly immune to ambient light. This ensures reliable code reading even in changing light conditions. The compact housing with swivel connector makes it the ideal code reader for production lines where space is tight.

Nothing passes by it unnoticed

High-performance decoder Identifies all kinds of different codes, even in environments with low contrast, reflective surfaces, or contamination
Highly resistant to ambient light Stable reading in all installation positions – even in changing light conditions

The Lector62x delivers reliable decoding, even under challenging conditions, and ensures high throughput rates in your application.

Puts any code into perspective

Always the right color

Two red and two blue LEDs ensure ideal illumination that is geared to the needs of the application

Always well-filtered The polarizing filter ensures reliable reading on even highly reflective surfaces
Always the ideal illumination Reliable identification of codes on curved and shiny surfaces, thanks to the dome attachment

The powerful illumination concept of the Lector62x can be adapted to suit the individual conditions at the site. Different illumination colors enable the reading field to be illuminated uniformly – ensuring optimum performance in any application. The correct lighting accessories allow reliable code reading even under difficult ambient conditions.

Always useful

Exceptionally easy Setup wizard with auto focus, aiming laser, and green feedback LED makes commissioning and handling easy
No worries about space The compact design, featuring a swivel connector, ensures easy integration even if installation space is tight
Stored The microSD card for storing images and backup copies of parameters ensures convenient analysis and short machine downtimes during replacement work
Innovative data handling Thanks to comprehensive sorting, filtering, and output formatting, the read results are transferred to the controller in the desired format, cutting down on the amount of programming work required

With setup aids provided, plus a flexible design, intelligent cloning concept, and innovative data handling, very little work is required during commissioning or when replacing the device.


The sensor manufacturer SICK offers a broad portfolio of identification and vision solutions which are developed and produced in-house. Whichever solution you choose today, you can be sure of a flexible future with the 4Dpro concept. All 4Dpro sensors are compatible and interchangeable with one another. Standardized connectivity, a standardized user interface, and a standardized accessory concept – we call this unique combination 4Dpro.
Standardized connectivity All 4Dpro sensors feature the same modular connectivity. This provides the basis for a flexible fieldbus link combined with high process reliability. What’s more, you benefit twice over: the purchase order process is less complicated and integration is quicker and easier.
Standardized user interface All 4Dpro sensors use SICK’s universal device configuration software. This means that you can quickly familiarize yourself with all technologies. Data is sent to the control in the required format and the inputs and outputs of the 4Dpro sensors can be analyzed quickly by an event monitor.

Investment security, easy commissioning, low level of training required, fast and flexible exchange, even when switching between different identification technologies.

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.
