The VICAM 3S line-scan camera generates high-resolution images of parcels, large envelopes or polybags as they pass through. The integrated evaluation unit reliably detects barcodes, 2D codes and optionally even plain text (OCR). Even corrupted or poor-quality codes can be read. The captured data is transmitted and archived in real-time to connected Enterprise Resource Planning Systems. There, the data can be precisely evaluated and used for process optimization, for example, to improve internal commodity flows.

Highest resolution on the market

VICAM 3S is the intelligent main component in VIPAC IN-MOTION systems to capture shipments automatically. The line-scan camera comes as an 8K or 16K variant. The 16K variant offers the highest resolution on the market and reads at the highest line scan frequency of over 50 kHz. The higher resolution enables the reading of smaller codes, better OCR performance and, by using different focal lengths, a wider field of view. With this, even wider sorters of up to 1.60 meters and even larger objects are now covered – at conveyor speeds of up to 4.5 m/s.
