iDimension is packed with innovative technology, and without any moving parts to service, it is an easy-to-maintain dimensioning solution. Unlike other dimensioning models that require exact parcel placement, iDimension can quickly capture dimensions from parcels placed anywhere in its zone of interest work area. An added high-resolution camera captures an image of the parcel to identify bar codes and OCR data. Its free API allows users to interface with the system to retrieve dimensions, weight, a low-resolution image and more valuable data using a simple HTTP request and XML parsing method. iDimension is easily installed over existing conveyors and workstations, streamlining operations and optimizing efficiency and quality.
