Lector Identification System

High-speed image-based code reading and assignment for small object gaps

Your Benefits

  • Less manual post-processing thanks to high read rate
  • Allows a high throughput due to combination of high conveyor speed and small object gaps
  • Cost-effective solution due to small number of cameras in the system
  • Quick and easy commissioning
  • Small camera design and compact system footprint allow installation even when space is limited
  • Easy retrofitting into existing Lector65x systems
  • Fast image transfer for vision applications such as OCR and simultaneous image archiving for analysis and process optimization


High-speed image-based code reading and assignment for small object gaps

The Lector Identification System reads codes and assigns them to the associated object. Thanks to its high resolution, the small, powerful Lector85x 12-megapixel matrix camera offers reliable read results for any object size. It successfully reads codes regardless of the code quality thanks to intelligent, AI-based decoding algorithms. The high processing power also allows high conveyor belt speeds for greater throughput. Through real time object tracking and three-dimensional software assignment, the Lector Identification System reliably performs the code assignment task even with small object gaps. The system can be extended with further identification technologies or additional functions such as dimensioning and weighing.

Camera-based 1D and 2D code reading

Based on the Lector85x, the Lector Identification System provides reliable identification even when conveyor-belt speeds are high, gaps between objects are small, and codes are difficult to read. In addition, the system can unambiguously assign the identified code to the object.

Reliable code identification and unambiguous code-object assignment

The system reliably reads codes even when gaps between objects are as small as 50 mm — and conveyor-belt speeds reach up to 3.5 m/s. This significantly increases output.

The system’s 3D software assignment function precisely assigns codes to objects, ensuring each object arrives at its destination. This reduces manual rework and boosts plant productivity.

The system features AI-based decoding to provide quick, precise identification of the relevant code region. Using super-resolution, the system recognizes even small or blurred codes.

Powerful camera + AI-based segmentation + 3D software assignment = higher output along with reduced manual post-processing

Compact system design

You can flexibly adapt the Lector Identification System to the space at your disposal. Various camera options and a wide selection of accessories are available for creating a compact system. You can choose between prefabricated system options and a fully tailored solution to optimally adapt the system to your space requirements.

Flexible adaptation to any environment

Thanks to its large depth of field, the system can identify codes with a small number of cameras even when object sizes differ.

A limited number of cameras, the steep mounting angle, mirror modules and small reading distances enable the compact design of the system.

Quick and easy to integrate into any environment, the Lector Identification System is available in several versions as a prefabricated system, including options for reading from one side to six sides.

The Lector Identification System with compact system design fits everywhere and can be quickly installed without any additional expert knowledge.
