Powerful easy-to-use multicode reader

Reliable and fast identification of 1D and 2D codes even under difficult conditions - industrially compatible thanks to diecast housing

  • Robust, industrially compatible diecast housing
  • Teaching via one button and configuration via smartphone app
  • Comprehensive features: integrated ifm memory stick, polarisation filter, automatic focusing
  • Integrated fieldbus interfaces
  • Award-winning Vision Assistant software for configuration

Powerful detection
The new multicode reader reliably detects 1D and 2D codes. It ensures reliable identification even under difficult conditions, e.g. in case of changing extraneous light or shiny surfaces. Several different codes in one or more images can be evaluated in just a few milliseconds.

Quick set-up via pushbutton
Simple applications with one code per image can be set quickly via teach button. This saves time and costs. The preset device configuration can be changed by means of a user-friendly smartphone app.

Vision Assistant software
For complex identification tasks, the multicode reader can be configured using the award-winning Vision Assistant software. The intuitive navigation and the visualisation help you to keep track.

Powerful features

Teach button
One of the sensor’s highlights is the simple teaching via one button. After pressing the teach button, the user aligns the multicode reader to the code by means of a laser marking. Focusing, exposure setting and detection of the code type are automatically carried out by the sensor. A few seconds later, the sensor is ready for use.

Configuration via smartphone app
A smartphone app (iOS, Android) is available for basic configuration of the device. The user can e.g. use it to define the trigger or IP address. Based on these settings, a Data Matrix code is generated on the smart phone’s display. When this code is held into the multicode reader’s field of view, the configuration is automatically adopted.

Vision Assistant
For complex identification tasks, the multicode reader can be configured using the award-winning Vision Assistant software. For example, the auto-find function detects several different codes in one image. The user can easily assign these codes in the Vision Assistant. Thanks to different logic functions, the sensor can be programmed for sequential control. An expensive evaluation unit is not necessary. The live image and extensive visualisation of all settings provide an optimum overview.

ifm memory stick
The device has an exchangeable ifm memory stick. It can be used to save or load complete configurations of the multicode reader. This simplifies device replacement and the set-up of several units for the same application.

Polarisation filter
The integrated optional illumination with polarisation filter ensures sufficient contrasts to reliably detect codes even in case of shiny surfaces such as metal.
