Independent of orientation and number of codes the multicode reader automatically decodes 1D and 2D codes. The new version also solves OCR tasks, e.g. for product identification by type designations or serial numbers. All information such as expiry date or production date can now be directly read.
More functions include the output of the code position via the process interface, adjustable total quality parameters, individual illumination settings for each configuration in a group, integrated fault memory and access protection with password.The professional software of the multicode reader takes the high reading reliability of the Data Matrix code to a new dimension. Top choice for price/performance: The multicode reader provides high functionality and performance at the price of a sensor.
In addition to an automatic exposure setting, manual adjustment is also possible. Four illumination segments can be deactivated and activated manually. So optimum results are achieved even with highly reflective metal surfaces.
High reading reliability
Automatic setting of the exposure time, adaptation by segmented illumination for critical surfaces.
Intelligence in the sensor
Programmable outputs, verifier system reduces data transmission.
RS-232, Ethernet TCP/IP and EtherNet/IP interface. Quick in the process: Object speeds of up to 7 m/s.
Illumination, optics, evaluation and interfaces in an industrially compatible housing.
The system is configured and ready for use within a few minutes - with PC software or directly on the sensor.
The ifm multicode reader reads many 2D and 1D codes as well as text. The standardised 2D code can be applied in different ways: printed on paper, engraved by laser or dot-peened onto a metal surface.
The compact unit is installed using the suitable mounting set and connected to the controller (PLC) via the process interface. Parameter setting is done via an Ethernet cable using a common PC.
One of many examples: Based on the Data Matrix code, the multicode reader identifies hygienically packed cotton swabs on a conveyor belt dynamically.
