The system combines the camera, illumination, decoder, and power supplies into a single unit integrated by a unique internal Ethernet network, reducing downtime. The embedded real-time Linux operating system eliminates external software and hard drive glitches, and an exclusive RangeFinder module provides package detection with no moving parts. Other features include automatic compensations for camera angle, package skew, and belt speed variation; reduced-wattage LED illumination; modular design and "plug-and-play" component replacement; filter-less cooling system; and built-in dimensioning capability.
