Vitronic launches parcel scanner

Vitronic has launched the VICAM-snap to aid manual processing of packages, by automatically reading barcodes and 2D codes as well as using a camera and white LED illumination to process a photograph.

The system in mounted above workstations and transfers the photographs to an decoding unit which interprets the codes on the object. It then archives the acquired data or passes it to warehouse inventory computers or dispatch departments.

The parcel scanner has a reading field measuring 30 x 30 x 38cm and Vitronic reckons it operates at high speed and achieves read rates close to 100 per cent.
