Cubiscan 210-DS

A new generation, high-speed above-the-belt in-motion dimensioning system for measuring irregular-shaped items.

Parcel Types: Irregular, cuboidal and boxed items

Applications: Shipping, logistics and space management


Product Description

The Cubiscan 210-DS is a new generation, above-the-belt in-motion dimensioning system for measuring irregular-shaped items. It can quickly be installed above existing flat (powered) conveyor belt, thus eliminating the need to breach a conveyor to drop in a cubing system. The 210-DS uses modular components allowing service to be simple, quick and inexpensive. It is capable of measuring on wider conveyors, at higher-speeds, and with more accuracy for more demanding dimensioning applications. It is also type-approved for legal-for-trade applications in the U.S., Canada and the European Union. Several versions (including custom configurations) are available for economical, high-precision and non-cuboidal applications.


The Cubiscan 210-DS is a high-speed, high-accuracy in-line dimensioning system. It is a dual sensor system for dimensioning non-cuboidal or cuboidal items in a more demanding cubing application. It is capable of accurately measuring box or real volume and is well suited for high-speed distribution and sortation applications.

The Cubiscan 210-DS sensors use Class 2 laser technology to measure object length, width and height. The sensors have self-contained controllers for measurement operation and communication output. The system is capable of interfacing to optional scale, bar code scanning and label printing devices, and can communicate with mainframe or PC hosts using Cubiscan’s powerful yet flexible Qbit™ user and data interface software.

No conveying equipment, or in-line scale?

In cases where a facility has no conveying equipment, or if you’re starting from the ground up, Cubiscan can install a conveyor with a 210-DS system. Additionally, weighing functionality can be added with a separate but integrated in-motion conveyor or stationary (dead-roller) scale. Barcode scanning equipment can also be included, giving you a complete turnkey cubing, weighing, and identification/tracking station.
