Sick’s Lector620 series of 1D and 2D code readers provide reliable reading performance, rapid integration in a variety of packaging machine IT environments and extensive analysis and diagnostic possibilities.
Standards for product and ingredient quality are continually being raised due to stringent agency regulations, increasing the importance of barcode reading, verification and grading in many inspection processes.
IEI Technology's MODAT-335 reader features an optional UHF reader that can increase range up to 10 m.
Balluff’s line of Sharpshooter vision sensors now includes an ID version designed to read a large range of linear barcodes and 2D data matrix codes, as well as optical character verification (OCV).
The Lector 620 series image-processing code reader is suitable for all code types and marking methods. It features compact design, industry-compatible integration into different IT environments, intuitive operation and good reading performance for product traceability and protection against product counterfeiting. Variant types in the series include: Eco as the basic variant, Standard as the device for rapid implementation of universal applications, and High Speed for high-speed solutions.
The MAC335 stationary universal code reader is able to read all common 1D and 2D codes (25 different code symbologies). This is an economical compact reader with small mounting dimensions and is designed for stationary reading. It can read codes within a range from 20 to 300 mm. This means codes can be read reliably without having to mechanically adjust the lenses or use different lenses or other code-reader versions. The reader’s high resolution of 1.3 megapixels enables it to read both very small and large codes without having to change settings.
The 70 Series of rugged mobile computers is comprised of four products over a common platform and capabilities. Among the four are the CN70 for field service, transportation and logistics, and the CK71 for manufacturing and warehousing.
Reading unaligned barcode labels generally requires two or more barcode scanners that are aligned with respect to one another. The MSPi systems from Leuze electronic are modularly structured and mechanically premounted scanner portals. Electrically wired and preconfigured, they are delivered ready to use.
The Symbol MT2000 Series from Motorola is a handheld mobile terminal with a hybrid design, able to function as both a scanner and a mobile computer. The MT2000 Series can be utilised as a scanner - tethered to a laptop or other computing system - or as a stand-alone wireless mobile computer capable of enabling inventory scanning and other scan-intensive applications.
The CLV6xx bar-code scanner platform offers scan frequencies up to 1200 Hz for conveying speeds of up to 6 m/s, permitting a customised solution for different identification problems. Various CLV6xx devices are also available as a variant with oscillating mirrors. Because of the processor technology used, the devices also feature performance reserves that allow reliably high reading rates even with a view to growing future demands.
The BCL 548i is a bar-code reader with integrated ProfiNet and integrated switch technology, allowing it to be used in a line network structure, minimising cabling requirements and offering a high level of flexibility.
The processing industries naturally lend themselves to a variety of categories - high risk, high expense and capital intensive, just to name a few. However, it’s becoming apparent across industry that many processing organisations are limited by their knowledge of what is happening on the floor - where their assets are, how well maintained they are and whether they are being utilised to their fullest.
The iVu bar code reader (BCR) from Banner Engineering is an industrial touch-screen bar code reader that can read 11 industry-standard bar codes to facilitate advanced traceability in packaging, material handling, pharmaceutical and many industrial applications.
The SD61 is a multiport wireless base station that provides a secure connection (ISCP protocol) between multiple Intermec industrial scanners and the host device. The SD61 allows up to seven Intermec Bluetooth-equipped scanners to operate in the same work area, connected wirelessly to the same mobile cart solution, PC or Intermec printer. By reducing the number of hosts, the SD61 delivers a quick ROI and a less cluttered work environment.
The 2D revolution — evolving business needs and improved technology are driving growth in two-dimensional bar coding24 August, 2008 by Jack Tay*
Two-dimensional bar codes have quietly revolutionised many production, tracking and maintenance processes. Now, 2D bar coding is undergoing a revolution, thanks to important scanning technology advances and growing use in multiple industries. 2D applications are now being adopted at more than double the rate of traditional 1D bar code technology.
